Протоієрей Андрій Дудченко
Сповідь і Причастя – найсерйозніша і найважливіша річ. Це те, заради чого варто приходити до храму. Сам Господь Ісус Христос Свою проповідь почав зі слів: «Покайтеся, бо наблизилося Царство Небесне». Він також говорив, що вічне життя матимуть лише ті, хто споживатиме Його плоть і питиме Його кров. Про те, як саме підготувати себе до цих великих Таїнств, щоб прийняти їх на зцілення душі й тіла, і будемо говорити у цій невеликій книзі.

The essays collected in this book deal with a wide variety of subjects--God and man in Orthodox theological perspective, the Bible, ecumenism, the "Eastern Rite," children in the Church, the American religious mentality, witness and service in Christian life--but they all have the same theme. They witness to the conviction that human beings are made to be filled with all the fulness of God. They claim that divine fullness dwells bodily in Jesus Christ, and that this fulness may be found by God's creatures in the Church of Christ, "which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all" (Eph. 1:23). They therefore are about life in the Church, and about the life of the Church: God's own life given in abundance in Christ and the spirit as the life of the world.
This book is for every young mother who's ever wished children came with an instruction manual; who's ever longed for just one quiet minute to finish a thought or utter a prayer; who's ever despaired of perfecting herself in time to become a good example for her children; who's ever wondered why "happily ever after" takes so darn much work. With courage, humor, and unflinching honesty, Molly Sabourin addresses all these frustrations and more offering not answers or solutions, but a new perspective, a pat on the shoulder, a reassuring "I've been there too, and there is hope." Those who share her "quest for patience, peace, and perseverance" will see themselves in these pages, laugh a little, cry a little, and close the book with new strength to continue the quest.

Jon E. Braun
There are millions of committed Christians in Protestant Churches who sincerely love God with all their hearts but who also have discovered that the Christian life is often...a battle against sin. They are frustrated because they aren't winning what they believe should be their share of those spiritual wars. In the depth of Orthodox theology and spirituality, new--actually, old--answers may be found.Beginning with an assessment of the battle all Christians have been called to fight, Fr. Jon turns to basic Orthodox theology regarding the Trinity, the Incarnation, etc. as the foundation for our struggle in this battle. Finally, he explains the tools, or weapons, we may use to fight the good fight such as prayer, fasting, almsgiving, and living a virtuous life. These tools have been used in and encouraged by the Church for 2000 years.

Archbishop Anastasios (Yannoulatos)
Analyzes current Christian education practices and identifies the foundations of Orthodox Christian education.
Anyone attempting to engage in Christian education at any level of parish life should do so with the benefit of relatively new knowledge from developmental psychology and educational psychology, and should also have a broad understanding, rooted in Christan tradition, of the nature of the Christian life. Dr. Boojamra provides an analysis of current Christian education practices and identifies the foundations of Orthodox Christian education as community,family, and personhood. While other foundations could be identified, these provide a convenient point of departure both for further discussion and for effective action in the parish and home.

What did new converts learn about the Faith in the early centuries of Christianity? The early Fathers of the Church theologians such as Chrysostom, Augustine, Ambrose, and others speak on these and other timeless topics. A priceless aid for any Christian who wishes to come to a deeper understanding of his or her own faith.
A penetrating discussion between "The Atheist and the Archbishop" - Anthony Bloom's famous television discussion with Marghanita Laski - on the essence of Christian faith and life opens this book of five selections. Summarizing the Christian life in terms of worship, joy, and the challenge to grow into a full stature, Metropolitan Anthony calls for a worshipful attitude to life. Paperback; 125 pages
Robert Tobias, John West (Illustrator)
This anecdotal account of the author's experiences with Orthodox Christians, mostly in East Europe but also in North America, is intended as a suppliment to the scholarly reports of official dialogue between the two churches - Lutheran and Orthodox. Robert Tobias writes, "With all the Vicissitudes of our past relationships, ... there has been an enduring fascination with each other and with our Lord's call to unity, which has drawn us again and again into dialogue and common cause in the world." The reader is invited, even enticed into joining the author in a journey, from rich experiences of encounter between Orthodox and Lutheran fellow Christians, to creative and sometimes surprising and amusing reflections about the meanings of those encounters.

Paul Nadim Tarazi
The First Epistle to the Thessalonians is the oldest of the writings which have been gathered into the New Testament. In reading it we can sense the powerful impact made by St Paul's preaching of the Gospel as well as the Apostle's continuing prayerful concern for this new mission church. We also discover St Paul's understanding of the Second Coming of Christ as he deals with the perennial question of "those who have fallen asleep." This important contribution to Orthodox biblical studies offers many helpful insights for all who wish to understand the Bible better, experts and novices alike. Its author, Fr Paul Tarazi, Assistant Professor of Old Testament at St Vladimir's Seminary, clearly demonstrates the importance of discovering what the scriptural text itself is saying.

Christians, as a second-century anonymous epistle notes, pass their days on earth, but are citizens of heaven. In this companion volume to God with Us: Critical Issues in Christian Life and Faith, Fr John Breck continues his exploration of the ethical and moral dilemmas facing believers who live in the flesh but not for the flesh. His reflections, among others, include: Are the Stories of Jesus Birth True? Why Read the Church Fathers? Maggie, Terri, and the Problem of Life- Support Hurricanes and Hummingbirds Poker, R.I.P. The Gift of Silence Prayer in the Spirit What They Didn t Teach Me in Seminary Church Billboard Slogans. Throughout the book, a holy eros, a longing for God, intersects the mundane and transfigures the ordinary, directing our gaze toward the Love we long to know beyond all else. Fr John refracts common perceptions media messages, politically charged issues, and even religious suppositions through a lens that takes account of the crucified and risen Lord.

Orthodoxy is considered to be "the best kept secret in America." It is the fastest-growing church in the United States. The beauty of Her services, the longevity of Her Tradition, Her position as the original Church, founded by our Lord Jesus Christ, are all highly attractive to world-weary Westerners looking for depth and spiritual validity. And yet this very Church now finds herself in a similar position in regards to feminism as the Catholic and Episcopalian churches once were. Inroads have already been made concerning liturgical language while dialogue is being encouraged regarding "women's role in the church, " especially in the question of women's ordination.How the Church answers this challenge, the decisions that will be made on all levels -- personal, parish, diocese, national and international -- will effect the life of the Church, spiritually and practically, for generations to come.
How deeply is new revelation rooted in and bound by old revelation, and how far does the old determine or contain the newness of the new? How does the new grow old, how is the old renewed, and what is the pattern - if any - of this process? In this study of the similarities and, equally important, the differences between older and more novel revelation in the Bible, Englezakis analyses these questions and indicates some of the ways in which answers may be found. A wide-ranging study which combines much original thought and sound scholarship with a deep spirituality, New and Old in God's Revelation reflects one of the rare encounters of western biblical scholarship with eastern Christianity.
A synthesis of doctrine, spirituality and biblical scholarship applied to the similarities and differences between old and new revelation in the Bible.

Saint John Chrysostom
Christian tradition often seems to give only grudging approval to the married life, particularly its sexual aspect. In these sermons of St. John Chrysostom we find an important corrective to this view. Although himself a monk, Chrysostom had a profound understanding of the needs of his congregation. Inspired by the epistles to the Corinthians and Ephesians, he discusses the reasons God instituted marriage—primarily to promote holiness of the husband and wife, and only secondarily to produce children. Chrysostom goes on to discuss sexual relations, the mutual responsibilities of marriage, and parenting. While parts of Chrysostom's sermons may seem limited to his own time, the vast majority of his advice has timeless relevance for the Christian family.

St. Basil the Great
St Basil the Great wrote his treatise On the Holy Spirit during the closing phase of the Trinitarian controversies of the fourth century. The Arians had previously denied the full divinity of the Son and the debate then turned to the Holy Spirit. In this work, without explicitly calling the Spirit 'God,' St Basil demonstrates that He, like the Son, is of one and the same nature with the Father, and that equal honor and worship therefore are due Him. This classic exposition of Trinitarian doctrine eloquently sets forth the distinction yet perpetual communion and conjunction of the divine Persons. At the same time it deals with the nature of theological language and with the theological significance of the Church's tradition of worship and proclamation. Its message, though specifically addressed to the fourth century, speaks to all ages. On the Holy Spirit is part of the POPULAR PATRISTIC SERIES.

Standing Conference of Oriental Orthodox, Edited by Thomas Fitzgerald
Since the fifth century, the Christian East has been divided over the theological description of the reality of Jesus Christ. For the past five decades, the two families of churches, Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox, have been cooperating to restore unity in the faith. Church leaders, theologians, and lay people are working to bridge the gaps in language, tradition, and doctrine that contributed to the ancient division.

The apostle Paul lived within a swirl of controversy. False Christians- Judaizers- dogged his every step, slandering his motives, denying his apostolic authority, and seeking to overthrow his Gospel teaching. They argued their case loudly, and Paul knew that he must give the literary performance of his life. The result was the Epistle to the Romans, in which he demonstrates the truth of his Gospel- a Gospel for all men- and thereby vindicates his apostolic authority. About the Orthodox Bible Study Companion Series: This commentary was written for your grandmother and for your plumber. That is, it was written for the average layperson, for the nonprofessional who feels a bit intimidated by the presence of copious footnotes, long bibliographies, and all those other things which so enrich the lives of academics. Working from a literal translation of the original Greek, this commentary examines the text section by section, explaining its meaning in everyday language. Written from an Orthodox and patristic perspective, it maintains a balance between the devotional and the exegetical, feeding both the heart and the mind.
Rev. Fr. Robert Holet
The First and Finest: Orthodox Christian Stewardship as Sacred Offering explores the rich biblical and historical themes of Christian stewardship from an Eastern Orthodox perspective, drawing insights from themes in the Old and New Testaments and ancient Christianity. The study of stewardship in Church history reveals how contemporary concepts of the 'religious economy' impact how and why Christians exercise stewardship today. The premise for this study - that Orthodox stewardship is centered in the priestly offering of Christ and His followers who comprise His Church - helps Christians today to differentiate the holy way of Christian offering from false or misguided concepts of stewardship and offers suggestions for ways in which church communities can rediscover the richness of these insights from the ancient, Orthodox tradition. This study is intended to challenge every reader to consider whether he or she offers his or her first and finest to the Lord, and encourages parishes to exercise stewardship as an act of divine worship in the service of God and the poor.

This book offers a compunctionate Lament by our ancestress, Eve, directed to her progeny in her old age. The Lament is entirely based upon commentary by early Church Fathers on sections of the Book of Genesis, Chapters 1 through 5 (Septuagint).

Subjects covered include: the creation and dignity of men and women, theosis, stewardship of the earth, the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the Fall, the sentence of mortality and God's love, providence and primacy in our lives. Appropriate for both elementary and advanced Bible studies, it also makes thoughtful reading during Great Lent. Includes index and bibliography.

One of the most profound works on repentance in all of Christendom. St. Theophan, a beloved Orthodox bishop from nineteenth-century Russia, speaks not only from a deep knowledge of the Church Fathers, but also from a lifetime of experience in turning his heart to God-and guiding others on this glorious Way that leads to our salvation. His writings are unique in that he combines centuries of Church wisdom with keen psychological insights for us today. Repentance is not a popular term here in the West, yet it is the cornerstone of the Lord's gospel, and the entrance into God's kingdom. Turning the Heart to God is a manual of true spiritual transformation in a world of often cheap grace . . . a classic book that has the power to change our lives, if we let it.
