as a primer to the Ladder. The fools-for-Christ are also known in Russia as "blessed ones." This book introduces us to two women who have been bestowed with this title because they were inspired with the conviction that everything earthly is vain and instead sought happiness in constant spiritual communion with God. Published in 2000. 48 pages. This volume presents the lives of three women strugglers. Each of them trod a path very different from the next ­ one, a fool-forChrist; another, a sorrowful widow living in the world; and, lastly, a humble nun. Each of them adhered to the narrow, but very personal, path to Heaven. Published in 2001. 64 pages. Pastoral caregivers find that the effectiveness of their ministry is enhanced when they are able accurately to identify problem areas and needs in the spiritual lives of the people with whom they work. This book addresses many of the questions pastoral caregivers have raised about this timely topic and provides an informed and balanced approach for making decisions about spiritual assessment models and tools. An account of the Assumption of the Theotokos, translated from the Menology of St. Dimitri of Rostov.

domestic violence; sexual abuse of refugee women; and human rights violations related to reproduction and female sexuality. A classic memoir of the immigrant experience in western Pennsylvania, as seen through the eyes of a child. 17 pgs Drawing on Christian writings throughout the early centuries, Mathewes-Green explores prayer, fasting, and alms-giving as aids to "theosis"-total transformation in Christ. This book is a call to reawaken the critical ministry of spiritual direction in which a person, whether in a life crisis or merely seeking Christian growth, can make great spiritual gains. The foundation of the faith of our Orthodox Church is that man constitutes the image of the Triune God. The Triune God is Intellect (Father), Word (Son) and Spirit. This book studies man's intellect in relationship to God's Intellect. Papers from a conference on intermarriage held at Holy Cross that have framed the conversation on this important pastoral issue facing Orthodoxy in North America. Also includes significant papers on the theology of marriage, guidelines for intermarriage and the latest statement from the Orthodox-- Roman Catholic Bishops. A reverent journey through the liturgy. Most inspiring. This book is in the form of a letter from an Abbot to his spiritual daughter, nun Kassiana.

St. Vladimir's Seminary Press


An Orthodox Martyrologion of over one hundred women, maidens and children throughout the year according to the church calendar. An Orthodox Materikon of women monastics and ascetics throughout the year according to the church calendar. 622 pages In an age when the family is deteriorating rapidly, the early church provides the inspiring examples of two heroic Christian families. The first one is Saint Efstathius and Theopistie and their two children, Agapius and Theopistus. The second saintly family is that of the Holy Martyr Sophia and her three daughters: Faith, Hope and Agape. These two families exemplify the faith, virtues, and basic Chriwstian morality needed in today's families. Written in simple language for everyone to understand. "These essays are for those who are serious about giving up excuses, complaints, ingrained bad habits and the blame of others for all their problems....They are gems of sound, solid advice to water a parched soul." From review by Deborah Belonick Twelve lay and ordained Orthodox writers provide profound and fascinating insights into the role and mission of the Church in today's world. Issues covered range widely, including family life, ecology and consumerism, politics, ethics, and psychology.

From its humble beginnings in 1794, when a small group of missionaries landed on Kodiak Island, Alaska, Orthodoxy in America has expanded to comprise a church of over 2 million faithful. The story is told on these pages. 145 pages There is a relatively small, but determined group of people who call themselves "true" Orthodox, or the Church in Resistance. Having separated themselves from the large body of Orthodox Churches, they accuse the leaders of Orthodoxy of steering the Church away from the Faith of the Fathers.

Written especially for the Orthodox Christian. The liturgical petition: "In peace let us pray to the Lord" is an invitation to private as well as corporate prayer. A most moving and inspiring definition of prayer according to the principles taught by the Church Fathers in the "Philokalia." The authors, a French Orthodox priest and his wife, have written a book that is more than just another historical review of how monks of old prayed out the Jesus Prayer. This is a how-to book teaching how to contact the indwelling Trinity by calling on Jesus in the tradition of the Philokalia whose early Christian athletes, intoxicated by God's love for them, prayed the Jesus Prayer day and night. Orthodox Christians do not need Yoga, Zen, or transcendental techniques. They have a far richer spiritual tradition of their own. The greater part of the book offers very practical experiential chapters on the practice of the Prayer as a way of life. The translator, Theodore J. Nottingham, writes,

A practical and insightful contribution to the under-explored area of ways in which prayer can inform and nourish the counseling process, as well as ways in which the two areas can be difficult to integrate. 143 pgs Bulgakov shows how divine Sophia, in whom all things are created, is present in the Holy Trinity itself and how as the "creaturely Sophia" she works together with her divine counterpart in the work of the Holy Spirit for the redemption of the world. 155 pages.

Spiritual Direction in the Early Christian East

Hausherr, Irenee Foreword by Bishop Kallistos Ware

Examines themes of spiritual direction and pastoral care, including ministry and brokenness, the role of the spiritual director, including the topic of obedience, the misuse of spiritual authority, and child abuse. A classic study of spiritual direction in the early Eastern Church, this work remains the standard resource on the subject to this day. Shows how spiritual fathers (elders) can supply the kind of charismatic guidance that St. Anthony provided in fourth-century Egypt and the ancient abbas and ammas who followed him. 434 pages.

A fascinating exploration of the spiritual roots of Orthodox Christianity. 172 pgs In this monograph, the late University of Athens Professor of Theology discusses the role of the laity in the Church and argues against the predominance of the clergy. Composed in 1899 when Rilke was only twenty-three, the interconnected tales of this book were inspired by his trip to Russia. His experiences led him to the conviction that God seeks to be known by us as passionately as we might seek to know God. 118 pgs

This is a collection of texts on prayer, drawn from Greek and Russian sources. It deals with the general question "What is prayer?" With the different degrees of prayer from ordinary oral prayer to unceasing prayer of the heart, with the dangers of illusion and discouragement, and the need for seclusion and inner peace. 287 pages A journey into the heart of Love in 94 years and 4 continents. 463 pgs This book offers the Orthodox Christian teachings of the Holy Bible and Church Fathers in a simple and plain manner for the laymen to understand the most basic and fundamental subject for spiritual life - the heart. 131 pgs The angels are realities, very active presences in the unfolding of the drama of creation and the working out of the daily life of our world. Mother Alexandra discusses angles in the Bible, the early Fathers, the Holy Liturgies and Christian art. 196 pgs St. Dorothy was martyred during the reign of Diocletian, on February 6, 303 according to tradition. With her were Christina, Callista and Theophilus. 16 pgs This prayer book contains the daily cycle of services and prayers in a handy format for use at home. 246 pgs The articles contained in this volume were written over a period of thirty years; but they all relate, in one way or another, to the theme of the inner Kingdom. This inner Kingdom present within me here and now, is at the same time the Kingdom of the age to come.

These meditations are gentle reminders of our faith and life in Christ. 164 pages The question of the place of women in the Church represents one of the major challenges posed for the traditional Christian churches by the modern Western world.

of Christ, true God and true man. Readers will discover here an amazing spiritual wealth, covering vast areas of vital significance for Orthodoxy - as Church, as theology, as history, as worship, as a way of life... a refreshing spiritual and intellectual achievement. 207 pages A delightful guide for children introducing them to basic concepts of the Church, including people, prayers, places, and liturgical items. Lovely color photos and illustrations. Themes from the Philokalia are intended mainly for the average layperson. They seek to contribute to the knowledge of the mystical life of our Church to the general public. This is the first volume in the series. 109 pgs "Political women of the Theodosian ages (A.D. 379-455) exercised a specifically female balileia, or imperial dominion. In so doing they helped to transform the Roman into the Byzantine empire. It is on the nature and scope of this dominion that Kenneth G. Holum focuses his considerable erudition." -Catholic Historical Review 258 pages, 17 b&w photos, 1 map. The author, an OCA priest with a Ph.D. in Patristics from Fordham University, maintains that stewardship begins with the Trinity and the awesome mysteries God has entrusted to us. We are stewards of the image of God in us. We are stewards of the love of God the Father and the grace of God the Son and the fellowship of God the Holy Spirit. Such stewardship has profound implications practically in the stewardship of our time, talents and possessions. Excellent as a study text for young adults and adults. The author comments on three traditional prayers, "Our Father", "O Heavenly King", "Prayer of St. Ephrem". His purpose is to discern the "prayer of fire" of which St. John Cassian spoke. 84 pgs

Toward Authentic Christian Spirituality

Timiadis, Metropolitan Emilianos

Holy Cross Orthodox Press


A meditation for each day of the year consisting of an excerpt from one of the Church Fathers together with Scripture reading and a prayer. Excellent for daily devotions. Celebrating the questions that have been raised and the actions women have taken, as well as looking toward future change, Miller affirms the strength and diversity of womanhood. When this book first appeared in 1963, North American parishioners were tired of interjurisdictional disputes, and the newly formed SCOBA was taking steps toward unity. Nonetheless, three decades later, Orthodoxy in America remains divided. Thus Bogolepov's clear and sober presentation continues to demand our attention and consideration. Metropolitan Emilianos is well known for his theological insight and spiritual wisdom that reaches deep into the Orthodox Tradition. In this work, he reflects upon basic themes of spirituality in order to call all Christians towards a life--giving spirituality that heals the brokenness of the world. The reader will be challenged and inspired by his straight-- forward approach and clarity. 154 pages. St. Gregory treats the human being as being made up of four layers: body, soul, mind, and heart. Here is presented a collection of treatises o the Spiritual life in the context of these four layers. In this book you will not meet the voice of dogma or intellectual theology, yet here, in these few pages, some of us will find a familiar voice, as well as some of the most penetrating advice on what is sometimes called "interior prayer" ever given first in the English language. For those who can hear, it is a book that knocks on the door of the heart. 45 pages

In this daring and speculative work, the author challenges contemporary Christianity to face up to its androcentrism. He sees the solution in a rediscovery of an authentic Christian anthropology, one that sees males and females as complementary, yet with distinct charisms and vocations.

Available in hardback and paperback. An overview on women and men in the Old and New Testaments, on marriage, sexual morality, childhood and childbearing, in Liturgical practices, ministry of the Church, and modern society. 76 pages. More than fifteen years have passed since the original publication of Women and the Priesthood. The living contributors to the first edition have all written new essays. The authors search for explanations and reasons why the Orthodox Church has never in its history ordained women to serve as bishops and priests. All agree that the Church had women deacons, and that careful consideration must be given to this office as it existed in the past and as it may once again exist in the Orthodox Church. The author states, "It is widely known that the

ministries of women is a concern which has generated great interest and animated discussion in numerous parts of the Orthodox world in recent years. What is less known, however, is that Orthodox discussions on the topic can trace their origins to efforts initiated well over a century ago." This is a significant and thought provoking study which will contribute positively towards the future of the Orthodox Church. Writings of the Fathers of the Church on creation, fall, marriage, martyrdom, asceticism and women in the wider world. The women of the Old Testament, too long invisible, have stories that are vital to the ongoing revelation of God's relationship with a covenant people. Meet mothers and queens, prophets and warriors, powerful women and victims. Meet women whose stories give us courage and insight. Here are women saints who sacrificed everything, even life itself, to be in God's presence. Their dedication will humble and inspire you. Is it true that the greatest obstacles to women's participation in public life are the traditional beliefs and values of our societies? How far are the major religions and faith traditions responsible for the inequalities experienced by women? This pioneering study on the identity of women as it is mediated in scripture and tradition seeks to answer these and related questions.
