    Song in the Furnace

    $26.95

    Out of stock

    “Like Daniel, we also live in Babylon, awaiting its apocalyptic fall, and like Daniel’s three holy and youthful friends, we also increasingly stand face to face with Nebuchadnezzar as he demands our cultural submission to an alien ideology. . . . This then is the urgent message of the Book of Daniel. As we stand before the powers of the age and hear the demand for cultural assimilation and surrender to secularism, we must make our own the words of the three young men to the king as the furnace of fury burned before them.” Learn More
  2. Wellsprings of Religion

    Wellsprings of Religion

    $44.95

    "I was immediately struck by the modern relevance of this work. Men was writing during the heyday of Soviet Communism, when religion—the Christian faith in particular—was under attack. In our increasingly secularized western society, the same line is peddled by so-called 'New Atheists,' fostered by the media, pandered to by politicians, and bolstered by misconceived notions of political correctness. Forceful and respected counter-voices are needed. This book is a welcome contribution to the defense of faith and reason—particularly the compatibility of science and Christian belief." —William Clegg Professor Emeritus, University of Newcastle, UK -- Fr Alexander Men faced specific challenges to faith in the Soviet Union, but the questions he raises and answers in this volume resonate on a universal level: Does religion belong only to the past? How is religion related to culture? What is faith? How is religion related to science? The Wellsprings of Religion brings Fr Alexander Men's voracious curiosity to bear on the issues of our day, as he seeks to bring Orthodox faith into dialogue with the world at large. This volume is the first in Fr Alexander Men's magnum opus, The History of Religion: In Search of the Way, the Truth, and the Life. In the author's words, "The aim of the work is to sketch out, in an accessible way, the drama of spiritual history...in the light of a holistic Christian worldview...and so the series as a whole can be seen as an attempt at a synthesis of religion, philosophy, and history...[that will] help readers see in the history of religion, not a host of delusions, but streams flowing and carried onwards, as in rivers and brooks, into the ocean of the New Testament." -- FR ALEXANDER MEN (1935-1990) was an Orthodox priest, theologian, and biblical scholar. He was a missionary to his own people, and founded the Orthodox Open University and the Russian Bible Society. He was murdered in 1990, just before the fall of the Soviet Union. Most of his works were published in Russia only after his death. Learn More
  3. Metaphysics As a Personal Adventure

    Metaphysics As a Personal Adventure

    $29.95

    Christos Yannaras in Conversation with Norman Russell Christos Yannaras remains one of the most fascinating voices in the Orthodox world. His theology is drawn less from books, than from encounters, experiences, the fate of Greece and of the world. All this is explored in an immensely engaging conversation with his principal translator, Norman Russell. An indispensible introduc-tion to the range and depth of Yannaras’ thought. —Andrew Louth, Professor Emeritus of Patristic & Byzantine Studies, Durham A captivating portrait of one of the most important contemporary Orthodox theologians and philosophers. It offers insight into Yannaras’ thought, and, perhaps more importantly, his ways of thinking—engaged, open, critical. It offers further depths for those already familiar with his works and a great introduction for those yet to encounter them. —Fr Georges Florovsky Distinguished Professor of Patristics, SVS Christos Yannaras is a philosopher, theologian, and political thinker widely regarded as one of the most important Orthodox thinkers of the twentieth century. He sees theology—along with philosophy—not as an academic enterprise, but as a serious approach to reality in all the dimensions vital to life today. A controversial figure, he castigates much of what passes for Christianity in the East as well as in the West, calling it a religionization of faith. In this book he responds to searching questions concerning his work, setting his thinking as a whole in an integrated vision of knowledge, truth, relationship, and salvation. CHRISTOS YANNARAS is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the Panteion University of Athens. He is also well known in Greece as a public intellectual through his newspaper columns and television appearances. NORMAN RUSSELL is an honorary research fellow of St Stephen’s House, Oxford. He is a noted patristics scholar and the English translator of several of Yannaras’s books. Learn More
  4. The Orthodox Church in the World

    The Orthodox Church in the World

    $42.95

    This book: The Orthodox Church in the World contains theological talks given by the author in Cyprus, Russia, Romania and Georgia at a variety of conferences. Subjects include: Personalism and Person, Theology as Science and as Charisma, The Hesychastic Life according to St Basil the Great, Bringing Up Children Today, Dogma and Ethics and Orthodox Psychotherapy. There are interviews on Therapy and Truth and The Theology of St Gregory Palamas and the Scholasticism of Barlaam, and the final chapter is devoted to St Paissy Velichkovsky – A Great Hesychast Father who “unites the Holy Mountain with the Balkans and Russia.” An unusual feature of this book is the record of the wide-ranging discussions that took place between the author the audience after each talk. Answers are given on issues of the spiritual life, which will help the clergy, monks and laypeople, parents and young people. True theology can transform society. The author points out to his audience the great importance and value of the Church’s hesychastic tradition, which gives meaning to life. He stresses that Orthodoxy possesses a spiritual therapeutic method for curing human beings so that, once cured, they can meet God as light and Paradise, and not as fire. Curing the human soul is not an individual act, but a method followed within the Church through the Sacraments and asceticism, by which man acquires unity with God. Discerning the depths of his listeners’ hearts and their concerns, the author answers them from his heart, revealing aspects of his own personal life. At the end of the book, prompted by the publication of the book St Paissy Velichkovsky by Professor Antonios-Emilios Tachiaos of the Theological School of the University of Thessaloniki, the author identifies basic points from this impressive and surprising biography of St Paissy, who loved hesychia and the neptic tradition of the Church from his youth. Encounters with Christians in other countries will help us to understand that, as Orthodox Christians, we have the same faith and belong to one spiritual family that transcends nationalism.

    Memories of His Mercy

    Whether he was writing or speaking, Fr. Peter was a master communicator. He had said for years that this was the other book he wanted to write. “I’d like to start from my youngest memories about how the Lord has been merciful to me and now to us,” he said to an interviewer, “through those years of searching for the Church, learning how to be Orthodox, doing the missions and evangelism work; up through the years of retirement, where I continue experiencing His mercy . . . to share with other people the faithfulness of God in a way that I hope will motivate them to trust in Him more than they do now.” —from the foreword by Fr. Jon Braun Learn More

    Further Up and Further In. Orthodox Conversations with C.S. Lewis on Scripture and Theology

    No 20th century Christian writer had as great an impact on the faithful of the West as C. S. Lewis. That’s why it is essential that a widely-read, deep-thinking Orthodox Christian hold a series of “conversations” with him, bringing forward both the brilliance of his work, and the corners where Orthodox faith would turn a different way.

  10. Into all the World. Orthodox Theology of Mission

    Into all the World. Orthodox Theology of Mission

    $35.00

    As the constraints of political and religious oppression have eased, the Church is awakening to its own history, but more importantly to its own missionary responsibility. There has been a great deal of fresh activity among Orthodox scholars that can enrich our reexamination of the Church’s mission. So it is now indeed an opportune time to tap into the biblical, historical, and traditional resources of the Orthodox Church and attempt to reformulate a systematic, theological statement of the rationale and goal of mission, to reaffirm the centrality of the Church in missionary outreach, to describe for a new generation the nature of the gospel and the basic content of church education, and to rearticulate the guidelines that should govern our mission work.
