  1. Being Bread

    Being Bread

    $24.95

    If as Dostoevsky says, "Beauty will save the world," it is because beauty arises only in the presence of love. Without love, there is nothing beautiful. There is nothing valuable. There is nothing meaningful. Meaning arises and transformation occurs through the call and response of personal encounter when we discover a third presence Who offers us being-in-relationship that is greater than the determinism and inertia of biological life. The stories and reflections in this volume are offered in celebration of the One who, in surprising ways and unexpected circumstances, becomes the precious and pure gift of our being bread so that we may live the mystery of becoming bread for others. I wish this for all who read this book. Learn More

  7. On Difficulties in the Church Fathers: The Ambigua, Volume II

    On Difficulties in the Church Fathers: The Ambigua, Volume II

    $39.95

    Out of stock

    Maximos the Confessor (580–662) occupies a unique position in the history of Byzantine philosophy, theology, and spirituality. His profound spiritual experiences and penetrating theological vision found complex and often astonishing expression in his unparalleled command of Greek philosophy, making him one of the most challenging and original Christian thinkers of all time. So thoroughly did his thought come to influence the Byzantine theological tradition that it is impossible to trace the subsequent history of Orthodox Christianity without knowledge of his work. The Ambigua (or “Book of Difficulties”) is Maximos’s greatest philosophical and doctrinal work, in which his daring originality, prodigious talent for speculative thinking, and analytical acumen are on lavish display. In the Ambigua, a broad range of theological topics—cosmology, anthropology, the philosophy of mind and language, allegory, asceticism, and metaphysics—are transformed in a synthesis of Aristotelian logic, Platonic metaphysics, Stoic psychology, and the arithmetical philosophy of a revived Pythagoreanism. The result is a labyrinthine map of the mind’s journey to God that figured prominently in the Neoplatonic revival of the Komnenian Renaissance and the Hesychast Controversies of the Late Byzantine period. This remarkable work has never before been available in a critically based edition or English translation. Nicholas Constas, editor and translator. Learn More

  9. Guide for a Church Under Islam: The Sixty-Six Canonical Questions

    Guide for a Church Under Islam: The Sixty-Six Canonical Questions

    $23.95

    In the Christian East, the pastoral manuals of the Church took a literary form known as “Questions/Answers.” The authors of these canonical works were bishops and priests who usually wrote to guide clergy in addressing issues arising from diocesan and parish life. Unlike any of these other guides, in the present work an entire church subject to Islamic persecution sought the counsel of its sole Eastern sister church that was free from Muslim conquest. This pastoral guide for a church under Islam sets forth a pattern meant for a patriarchate to apply in addressing issues arising in a society under the domination of an alien religion that regarded itself as superior by nature. In addition to the main issue, the twelfth-century document has a number of interesting features relevant for Church history, including its record of ancient Christian practices regarding liturgy, fasting, preparation for the Eucharist, burial of the dead, deaconesses, and the internal life of Arabic Christians living in what would become modern Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, and Syria. The translation as well as its annotations and introductory history represent a time capsule of the Church’s history in the aftermath of the Muslim conquests of the Middle East and just before the taking of Constantinople in 1204 by the Latin Crusaders. Patrick Viscuso, translator. Learn More

    “This book is a truly remarkable ‘short study’ telling the extraordinary story of the making of the New Testament in the light of the rise and growth of the ancient universal Church. Its impeccable academic quality is accompanied in every chapter by the profound hermeneutical insights provided by the life of the Church and the patristic-biblical-exegetical heritage. I am sure that [it] will be spiritually edifying and theologically informative, connecting the readers to the New Testament, the eternal sacred text of the Church, and the absolute Word of God.” From the Foreword by Archbishop Demetrios Trakatellis Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America “Fr. Theodore Stylianopoulos’ new book is an extraordinary study––short, concise, complete, carefully and fairly written. It synthesizes the fruits of a lifetime of rigorous historical-critical scholarship together with a lifetime of faith, worship, and service in the Church that canonized the twenty-seven New Testament writings which in turn, each in its own way, bears witness to the Church’s evangelical “canon of faith” summed up in the apostolic gospel. I recommend this rare achievement to everyone interested in this crucial subject that remains as controversial today as ever.” Protopresbyter Thomas Hopko, Dean Emeritus St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, Crestwood, New York “The Making of the New Testament is essential reading for anyone seriously interested in the current state of Orthodox biblical studies. Scholarly but readable, balanced but passionately argued, the book explores the organic interdependence of the nascent Church and the writings that would become our New Testament––an interdependence based on and expressive of the apostolic gospel in all its fullness.” Rev. Dr. John Erickson Peter N. Gramowich Professor of Church History, Emeritus, and former Dean of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary Learn More
