Saint Theophan, while from a different era and country, has an uncanny ability to communicate with modern Westerners.

"What good fortune therefore it is to receive a good, truly Christian upbringing, to enter with it into the years of youth, then in the same spirit to enter into the years of adulthood." --Saint Theophan
"This work ... applies in a concrete manner the profound spiritual wisdom of Orthodoxy to the realities of the common life and, in this case, the raising of children. Must reading for Orthodox Christian pastors, teachers and parents." --Fr. Stanley Harakas
