What publication (old or new) would readers recommend for someone interested in an informative, and inspiring introduction to the Greek fathers of the Church?

Fatherhood
I would recommend The Greek Fathers: Their Lives and Writings by Fr. Adrian Fortescue. Fr. Adrian can be a bit gruff at times but I think he is a man of his times and the book is an excellent introduction to the Greek Fathers of the Church. You can purchase it from Ignatius Press for a reasonable price.
