I am just bumping this so Tradd will be sure to see it ;-)  


The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Just now saw this thread!

 

This is the one published by LIght & Life, an Orthodox publisher in Minneapolis. This is the one I've most often seen in Orthodox hands, and we used it in my parish for our Sunday morning adult study group.

The translations themselves were done by Protestants in the 1960s, but the notes are all Orthodox.

I like the one published by Penguin, as part of a compilation called Early Christian Writings. The works are translated by a Classics scholar from Oxford, and are very readable.
