  3. Primacy in the Church. Volume 1. The Office of Primate and the Authority of Councils

    Primacy in the Church. Volume 1. The Office of Primate and the Authority of Councils

    $54.95

    EDITOR: JOHN CHRYSSAVGIS is the Archdeacon of the Ecumenical Throne and author of many books on Orthodox theology, spirituality, and ecology. Praise for Primacy in the Church— "This is an important two-volume work on the issue of primacy in the Church. The subject is significant, and has attracted attention resulting in the publication of numerous studies produced in many countries and in different languages. The relevant bibliography is enormous. The present work constitutes a selection of articles and short studies, and offers a very helpful picture of the various aspects, questions, and problems related to the central topic. The contributors to the two volumes are well-known theologians who have dealt with the issue extensively. The editor and contributor of four articles, Fr John Chryssavgis, is to be commended and congratulated because he managed—cooperating with St Vladimir’s Seminary Press—to place at the disposal of Church authorities and theologians a valuable resource on a crucial issue." ~His Eminence Geron Archbishop Demetrios, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America "The theology of the Church has in the last few decades become once again an area of real interest and creativity, as our attention has been drawn back to the role of the sacramental Body of Christ in our human liberation into divine communion. Yet when it comes to the details of inter-confessional dialogue, the temptation is still strong to revert to familiar and comfortable positions, with—among other things—an assumption that historic polarizations over primacy and collegiality are fixed and given quantities. These excellent essays insist on going deeper. They do not pretend to resolve the issues that still divide Christians, issues over the charism of the Petrine office or the limits of sacramental fellowship or the authority of the episcopate; instead, they represent a clear and searching exploration of fundamental matters starting from first principles. We need more reflection of this quality. This book will be a major resource for all who believe that the ecumenical encounter is still a powerfully energizing context for theological thought." ~Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College (Cambridge University) and former Archbishop of Canterbury "I have eagerly looked forward to such a publication on primacy and synodality in the Church, which is the central issue between the Eastern and Western Church. These two volumes include research from a broad range of leading theologians, predominantly Orthodox and Catholic, on the present state of such discussions. I have long been convinced that there can be reconciliation between East and West if the question of primacy is properly redefined and resolved, primarily on the Roman side: on the one hand, not solely as an authoritarian primacy of jurisdiction and, on the other hand, not simply as an ineffective primacy of honor, but primarily as an inspirational and mediatory pastoral primacy at the service of the whole contemporary ecumenical Church. In the recent past, John XXIII exemplified such a primacy; and today, the same could be expected of Pope Francis. His fraternal encounters with the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew are a promising step forward in addressing these vital issues." ~Hans Küng, Professor Emeritus of Ecumenical Theology at the University of Tübingen CONTENTS •Foreword, Metropolitan Kallistos [Ware] of Diokleia •Introduction, John Chryssavgis •The Meaning and Exercise of “Primacies of Honor” in the Early Church, Brian E.

    $28.95

    By Mersine Vingopoulo. Revised 2nd edition with new illustrations by Angeliki Delecha. I-ville—a Kingdom where pride and selfishness dwell, and where people live by the motto “Me first!” You-ville—a Kingdom where humility and kindness have their home, and where people put the good of others before their own. This is a story of a young boy named Stubborn, as he strives to become the first person of I-ville to make the difficult journey to the beautiful, joy-filled Kingdom of You-ville, and to become a citizen there. Drawn from the teachings of Elder Paisios of Mount Athos, Greece (1924–1994), these lessons can be of tremendous spiritual benefit for young and old alike. The journey of young Stubborn is one that all of us must take, and which all of us can accomplish—if only we shrink our "I" and put "You" first! Learn More

  8. Orthodoxy

    Orthodoxy

    $56.95

    Originally published in 1965, Evdokimov's Orthodoxy presents a masterful synthesis of the essential elements of Orthodox traditions as they appear throughout Church history, revealing the fruit born from the Russian diaspora in Western Europe and the interface of Orthodoxy with both the Christian and atheist West. Evdokimov quotes the 'Fathers' in order to bring their wisdom to bear on the modern spirit and in modern discourse. Rooting things in the anthropological teaching that 'God became human so that humans might become God,' Evdokimov considers asceticism, mysticism, ecclesiology, the faith of the Church, the prayer of the Church, and the Eschaton or 'Last Things.'

    $44.95

    "With exhilarating clarity, Frederica Mathewes-Green introduces the profound mystery at the heart of the Orthodox Christian faith, which is also our common inheritance: it is a way of life to be encountered and performed; it is not reducible to a range of propositions to be considered. With great charm and with characteristic wit and humor, she prepares the way for those who arrive at an Orthodox church for services, letting them know what to expect, what to watch for, how to lean in—letting them know how best to open their hearts to this worship that is both ancient and ever new." —Scott Cairns "In her own warm and engaging way, Frederica takes you on a journey into a strange and exotic world for those unfamiliar with it but a spiritual refuge and oasis for those who have embraced it. This just may be the Church you have been looking for and didn’t even know it existed." —John Maddex, CEO Ancient Faith Ministries "Beautifully written and carefully explained with a heart for the non- Orthodox. As an evangelical, who grew up in the Greek Orthodox Church, until being shipped off to boarding school in England, I found myself longing to revisit the liturgy and traditions of my youth!" —Emmanuel Kampouris, Former Chairman & CEO of American Standard Companies, Founder of www.biblemesh.com "This excellent book is most valuable because it is more like a friend than a book. It's the voice you hope to hear beside you in church, murmuring explanations and encouragement as you make your journey. I highly recommend it." — Rev. Dr. Christopher Metropulos, Executive Director, Orthodox Christian Network, MyOCN.net Learn More
