    'In a society where my generation is often mischaracterized or minunderstood by parents and those around them, assumed to be irreligious, cynical, and jaded, I intent to depict it as a I see it: which is to say a generation lying just at the door of faith, having rejected everything but faith itself. Having assumed everything to be meaningless, we are very close to accepting God as the only source of meaning.' - Marjorie Corbman Learn More

  7. Nearly Orthodox. On being a modern woman in an ancient tradition

    Nearly Orthodox. On being a modern woman in an ancient tradition

    $20.95

    Subtitle: On being a modern woman in an ancient tradition by Angela Doll Carlson From Catholic schoolgirl to punk rocker to emergent church planter, Angela Doll Carlson traveled a spiritual path that in many ways mirrors that of a whole generation. She takes us with her on a deep and revealing exploration of the forces that drove her toward Orthodoxy and the challenges that long kept her from fully entering in. About the Author: Angela Doll Carlson is a poet and essayist whose work has appeared in Burnside Writer’s Collective, Image Journal’s “Good Letters,” St. Katherine Review, Rock & Sling Journal, Ruminate Magazine’s blog, and Art House America. You can also find her writing online at Mrsmetaphor.com, NearlyOrthodox.com, and DoxaSoma.com. Angela and her husband, David, currently raise their four chaos-makers in the wilds of Chicago with some measurable success. What Reviewers Say: With uncommonly keen insight born of uncommonly keen honesty, Angela Doll Carlson has given us an uncommon pilgrim’s journey, one that might actually serve, comfort, and assist other pilgrims along the way. —Scott Cairns, author of Short Trip to the Edge and Idiot Psalms Because [this writer] is a poet, her deeply felt and unsparingly described progress as a seeker resounds with freshness. There is some extraordinarily authentic writing here, some insights of profound simplicity and truth, . . . a story penetratingly painful but revelatory. She tells us that Orthodoxy settled into her, soul and skin. And we believe her. —Luci Shaw, author of Scape: Poems, and Adventure of Ascent: Field Notes from a Lifelong Journey; Writer in Residence, Regent College Angela Doll Carlson has been a chain-smoking poet, a singer in a punk band, a tattooed mother who types film scripts while nursing her infant daughter. Indeed, she’s unorthodox in almost every sense of the word . . . except for the one that ultimately comes to matter. A wise and beautiful memoir. —David McGlynn, author of A Door in the Ocean and The End of the Straight and Narrow With deft, poetic writing, Angela Doll Carlson recounts the struggle to know herself, to know herself in God, and to know herself in and through the ancient tradition of Eastern Orthodoxy. Her story resounds with truth, humor and the desire to encounter the holy. Highly recommended. —Mary C. Earle, author of The Desert Mothers: Spiritual Practices from the Women of the Wilderness Learn More
  8. The Mystery of Art

    The Mystery of Art

    $19.95

    Subtitle: Becoming an Artist in the Image of God Emmy Award-winning actor and musician Jonathan Jackson explores the profound implications of human creativity in the image of God, along with the process of becoming an artist (of any sort) dedicated to practicing his or her art from the context of a deep relationship with God. The true Christian artist is not necessarily one who treats religious themes, but one who creates through the power of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God. About the Author Jonathan Jackson began his career in Hollywood over twenty years ago on the soap opera General Hospital. His heart-wrenching performances helped win him five Emmy Awards. Jonathan has also performed in many feature films, including The Deep End of the Ocean, Tuck Everlasting, and Insomnia. His work has taken him to many places around the world, including Ireland, Italy, Romania, and Canada. Jonathan is currently one of the stars of the ABC primetime drama, Nashville, a show centered on the inner workings of the Nashville music scene. Jonathan plays Avery Barkley, an up-and-coming singer/songwriter trying to find his way in Music City. Along with acting, Jonathan is also the lead singer of the band Enation and the author of Book of Solace and Madness, which was published in 2012. Jonathan resides in Nashville, Tennessee, where he loves spending time with his wife, Elisa, and their three children. For more, visit www.JonathanJackson.com Endorsements It will surprise some who know Jonathan Jackson only by his acting and his music that he is a man in whom the spirit of ancient Christianity dwells. He is a film star, yes, but also a mystic, a thinker, and a prophet. We should be thankful he brings all of himself to this vision of the artist inhabited by God. —Stephen Mansfield, New York Times bestselling author With uncommon attention to the matter at hand—our matter, our lives apprehended as an ongoing encounter with the Mystery of persons in the image of God—Jonathan Jackson brings into harmony the wisdom of the Fathers and the insights of great artists, past and present. The result is a compelling articulation of how the very shaping of our lives is best understood as the most precious and most efficacious of arts. —Scott Cairns, Author of Compass of Affection and Idiot Psalms That fine actor and, I am happy to say, my good friend, Jonathan Jackson, has written a book that is a profound meditation on the relationship of the art created by us limited human beings to the infinite Author of all beauty. I hope everyone who reads this book will find in it a source of meditation on the presence of God that can be found in the work of those who seek to add to the sum of beauty in our lives. —Msgr. Jim Lisante, Author of The Power of One, Host of Personally Speaking and Close Encounter There have been many books written on the nexus of Christian faith and the arts. I'm very happy to see that Jonathan's Christ-centered offering is original and set apart from the others. The Mystery of Art has earned a place on my shelf next to the best on the subject. —Charlie Peacock, Composer and music producer With the lyrical immediacy that narrates his own path as a Christian and an artist, Jonathan Jackson draws on both his own experience and the richness of the theological tradition of the Orthodox Church to present not only intelligent thinking on aesthetics nor his contemplations on spiritual matters, but a fresh and genuine spiritual path for all artists and indeed for all persons. A delight to read, this book is not merely written—it sings. —Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick, Author of Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy and An Introduction to God It is a delight to see Jonathan Jackson's book on Christianity and art being published by Ancient Faith. Not only does it address a question of perennial and—in our times especially—pressing interest, but does so with remarkable clarity and grace. Jonathan is a well known actor, musician, and poet, and this inspired effort to bring the insights of his Orthodox Christian faith to all forms of artistic creativity can only be welcomed as an exciting event in the intellectual history of the modern Church. —Fr. John Strickland, Author of The Making of Holy Russia I was inspired by The Mystery of Art. Jonathan Jackson’s approach to the role of an artist is holistic and challenging. He portrays the artist as a coworker with God, fashioned in His image. Throughout the book, Jonathan encourages us not only to uplift the culture, but also suffer for its renewal, with humility and love. As an artist, I was moved to contemplate the prayerful nature of each moment of creation. —Michael W. Smith, Singer/Songwriter Learn More

    From I-ville to You-ville. New Edition now available

    $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
