  2. 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.

    $69.95

    The Holy Tradition ( the Scriptures and the unwritten Tradition), is expressed in the prayer of the Church.

  7. Thy will Be Done, Strategic Leadership, Planning and Management for Christians.

    Thy will Be Done, Strategic Leadership, Planning and Management for Christians.

    $38.95

    Peter Danilchick, a protodeacon and retired corporate executive, brings his experience and expertise to bear on the meaning, challenges, and techniques of strategic leadership, planning, and management for Christians. Many books examine these skills from a business perspective, but none have incorporated the timeless wisdom of the Orthodox faith. Thy Will Be Done serves as a bridge between the ecclesiastical and corporate worlds, drawing on Scripture and the Church fathers, together with the strategies and best practices of the business world. In this unique book the meaning and goals of leadership are explored, and readers discover their vocation as Christian leaders: prophets, priests, and kings who by virtue of their baptism are called to servant leadership. We further learn about those called to ordained service (deacons, priests, and bishops), who exemplify the threefold ministry of service, sacrifice, and oversight. Danilchick then unfolds the steps of strategic planning, and the day-to-day concerns of strategic management: board governance, ethics and compliance issues, organizing and running meetings, reaching agreement with disagreeable people, HR management, organizational finances, stewardship reports, and fundraising. From the mystical to the practical, from the hesychastic fathers to compliance with tax regulations, Christian leaders will find the tools that equip them to lead, to plan, and to manage as Christians, in both the Church and the world.

  10. Know the Faith: A Handbook for Orthodox Christians and Inquirers

    Know the Faith: A Handbook for Orthodox Christians and Inquirers

    $34.95

    Over the centuries since the Great Schism between the Eastern and Western Churches, the two groups have diverged to the point that they often no longer understand each other’s vocabulary, let alone the fundamental concepts on which each faith is built. Know the Faith is an attempt to present Orthodox Christianity in a way Western Christians can understand, grounding each point in Scripture and patristic theology, with comparisons to what Catholics and Protestants believe. Whether you are an Orthodox Christian seeking to explain your faith to others or an inquirer into this ancient faith, Know the Faith will help you understand and communicate the Orthodox faith as never before. About the author: The Rev. Fr. Michael Shanbour is a lifelong Orthodox Christian and pastor of Three Hierarchs Orthodox Mission in Wenatchee, Washington. He received his M.Div. at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in 1989. He has been active in youth, camp, music, and Christian education ministries. Fr. Michael was ordained to the holy priesthood in 2001 and pastored mission parishes in Topeka, Kansas, and Spokane, Washington, before being assigned to Three Hierarchs. He is blessed to live in Wenatchee with his wife, Makrina, and son, Simeon. Endorsement: "Know Your Faith presents the Orthodox faith in a clear and easy-to-understand way, and goes a step further by dealing with the objections other Christians might lodge; yet perhaps it's greatest value comes from the extensive collections of quotations from the Scriptures and the Fathers supporting Orthodox faith and practice. This is the toolkit any Orthodox could use to respond to the questions and critiques of other Christians." –Frederica Mathewes Green Learn More
