Becoming Orthodox: A Journey to the Ancient Christian Faith
Peter E. Gillquist
201681
Tags:

 

This is the story of a handful of courageous men and their congregations who risked stable occupations, security and the approval of life-long friends to be obedient to God's call.It is also the story of every believer who is searching for the Church. Where Christ is Lord. Where holiness, human responsibility, and the sovereignty of God are preached. Where fellowship is more than a covered-dish supper in the church basement. And where fads and fashions take a backseat to apostolic worship and doctrine.This is a book, for Orthodox Christians, looking for ways to bring new life to their own Churches. It's also a book for those completely dissatisfied--those on their own search. And it's a book for Orthodox Christians, looking for renewal.

Close to Home: One Orthodox Mother's Quest for Patience, Peace and Perseverance
Molly Sabourin
201762
Tags:

 

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.

Divine Energy: The Orthodox Path to Christian Victory
Jon E. Braun
11606
Tags:

 

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.

Foundations for Orthodox Christian Education
John Boojamra

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.

Robert Tobias, John West (Illustrator)
201765

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.

I Thessalonians: A Commentary (Orthodox Biblical Studies)
Paul Nadim Tarazi
201764
Tags:

 

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.

Longing For God: Orthodox Reflections on Bible, Ethics, and Liturgy
John Breck
12608
Tags:

 

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.

More Spirited Than Lions: Orthodox Response to Feminism and a Practical Guide to the Spiritual Life of Women
Sarah Cowie
10246
Tags:

 

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.

New and Old in God's Revelation: Studies in Relations Between Spirit and Tradition in the Bible
Benedict Englezakis
201675
Tags:

 

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.

On Marriage and Family Life
Saint John Chrysostom
202204
Tags:

 

 

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.

On The Holy Spirit
St. Basil the Great
201739
Tags:

 

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.

For the past five decades, the two families of churches, Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox, have been cooperating to restore unity in the faith.

Six Books on the Priesthood
St. John Chrysostom

Tags:

 

None of the Fathers of the Early Church is better known or better loved than St. John Chrysostom, and none of his works is more popular than On the Priesthood. Its stylistic brilliance demonstrates the appropriateness of St. John's enduring title, "the golden-mouthed". Yet the rhetorical eloquence of the work is not simply camouflage for lack of substance. As Graham Neville observes in his introduction, St. John Chrysostom "had a mind both practical and idealistic, that brought into close connection the evils and injustices of the world and the perfection of moral life demanded by the Gospel.

The First and Finest
Rev. Fr. Robert Holet
201850
Tags:

 

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.

The Lament of Eve
Johanna Manley
201721
Tags:

 

If you learned to appreciate the Holy Fathers in The Bible and the Holy Fathers for Orthodox and in Grace for Grace: The Psalter and the Holy Fathers, you will want to read the Lament of Eve. 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). 

 

The Lament of Eve attempts an exegesis of sections of the first five chapters of Genesis based on commentary of the Fathers of the Church. 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.
