Orthodox Books

Orthodox Book Store

Crossroad Books was started in 2005 with a lot of faith and hope. It is an independantly owned and operated bookshop which is dedicated to making available quality English language Orthodox books, primarily in Australia, but also wherever people want them.

Our Aims

We aim to supply good quality English-language books, from the Orthodox perspective, on the widest range of topics possible, and from as many respected and reputable local and overseas Orthodox authors and publishers as we can find. The majority of Orthodox books are published outside of Australia at the moment, and this makes book buying expensive for the Orthodox Christian. Our aim is to make the purchase of quality books affordable for as many people as possible.


Books are available through our website as well as from our premises at 373 Canterbury Road Surrey Hills, VIC Australia, 3127 (our business premises in a small weatherboard house - right opposite the Shell Express Petrol station). If you are in the area you are very welcome to call in and enjoy a leisurely browse through our range of books, icons and gift items. A quick phone call before hand to let us know you are coming is always appreciated; (03) 9888 4193. We can also be contacted on email address: contact@crossroadbooks.com.au.

We undertake to obtain books from anywhere in the world for anyone who wishes to place an order with us. We will also consider all suggestions made to us.


All of us at Crossroad Books are committed to serving the Orthodox Church. The bookshop is not owned, bound or controlled by any one jurisdiction in particular as we wish to serve and co-operate with all Orthodox groups in Australia and throughout the world.
