ONE FLEW OVER THE ONION DOME: AMERICAN ORTHODOX CONVERTS, RETREADS & REVERTS

Author: FR. JOSEPH DAVID HUNEYCUTT #: 10616
Converts to the Orthodox Church are sometimes stunned by the ethnic ghetto they seem to have landed in. Cradle Orthodox are no less amazed by these zealous sometimes apparently nutty converts. And priests seem to often not have a clue as to how to deal with the mixed blessing of newcomers. How on earth can we all understand each other? More importantly what can we learn from each other?

SELECTED ESSAYS

Author: PROTOPRESBYTER MICHAEL POMAZANSKY #: 10617
In this collection of sixteen essays Fr. Michael Pomazansky examines and evaluates the errors of modernism which today agitate world-wide Orthodoxy. These humble and gentle, yet penetrating essays lack the angry tone of some writers, and are therefore all the more valuable for today`s reader. Among the subjects he examines are: The Liturgical Theology of Fr. A. Schmemann, The Church of Christ and the Contemporary Movement for Unification in Christianity, On the Question of Toll-Houses, and many more. This volume also contains a short biography of Fr. Michael, who died in 1988 at the age of 100. He graduated from a pre-Revolutionary Russian seminary, and was for many years Professor of Theology at Holy Trinity Monastery, Jordanville, New York.

TOWARD AN AMERICAN ORTHODOX CHURCH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AN AUTOCEPHALOUS ORTHODOX CHURCH

Author: ALEXANDER BOGOLEPOV #: 10618
The Orthodox Church is a communion of local churches, internally self-governing but united in faith and sacramental life. Orthodox ecclesiology aims at "unity in plurality," allowing Orthodoxy to adapt to new circumstances and embed itself in a variety of cultural contexts. But this ecclesiology now faces new challenges — nationalism, communism and massive emigration to the Americas and other lands. Orthodox Christians in the West face the critical question of how to establish a local church.

THE GOSPEL IMAGE OF CHRIST: THE CHURCH AND MODERN CRITICISM

Author: VESELIN KESICH #: 10621
Like the icon, the gospel image of Christ emerges from the living tradition of the Church. Like the icon, the gospels are the product of a period of preparation, witness and meditation. Like the icon, they are the Church`s expression of its faith.

Over twenty years ago, Professor Kesich wrote The Gospel Image of Christ: The Church and Modern Criticism. This completely rewritten and enlarged book represents the fruit of Professor Kesich`s lifetime interest in the study of “biblical criticism.” He has added chapters regarding the dating and chronology and the history of the gospels, reevaluating the Gnostic gospels and the titles and images which the earliest Christians considered adequate to answer the question of who Jesus is. He has also addressed questions raised by some new approaches to gospel research. For all practical purposes, this is a new book with the old title, which best conveys its major purpose. The basic perspective of the previous work, as well as still valid material, has been retained from the first edition.

I SAW THE HOLY LIGHT

Author: ARCHIMANDRITE SAVVAS ACHILLEOS #: 10624
This is a story of the mysterious Holy Light that spontaneously and inexplicably pours forth every Holy Saturday from the Most Holy and Life-Giving Tomb of the Resurrected Savior Christ in Jerusalem.

THE CHALLENGE OF OUR PAST: STUDIES IN ORTHODOX CANON LAW AND CHURCH HISTORY

Author: JOHN H. ERICKSON #: 10625
The Church is not a static object. It lives in time, in history. This means that its past is not just a matter of fact. It also poses a challenge. Christians are obliged to take seriously the problem of historical change. They must reflect on what gives the Church its identity in time and space, even in the midst of change.

EARLY CHRISTIAN DOCTRINES

Author: J.N.D. KELLY #: 10626
This revised edition of the standard classic history of the first the first five centuries of the Church has been thoroughly updated in the light of the latest historical findings. Dr. Kelly organizes an ocean of material by outlining the development of each doctrine in its historical context. He lucidly summarizes the genesis of Chrisitian thought from the close of the apostolic age to the Council of Chalcedon in the fifth century—a time teeming with fresh and competing ideas. The doctrines of the Trinity, the authority of the Bible and tradition, the nature of Christ, salvation, original sin and grace, and the sacraments are all extensively treated in these pages.

This revised edition of Early Christian Doctrines includes:

THE PRIMACY OF PETER: ESSAYS IN ECCLESIOLOGY AND THE EARLY CHURCH

Author: #: 10629
In considering the issue which has divided Christians in the past and still divides them today, a group of Orthodox theologians from different theological perspectives reflect upon the scriptural passages which single out Peter among the disciples of Jesus. Koulomzine ("Peter`s Place in the Primitive Church") and Kesich ("Peter`s Primacy in the New Testament and the Early Tradition"), as exegetes, read the passages in the light of contemporary New Testament research. John Meyendorff ("St Peter in Byzantine Theology") looks at the history of exegesis: how were these passages read at the time when East and West split, quarrelling about the issue of authority in the Church? Finally, Schmemann ("The Idea of Primacy in Orthodox Ecclesiology") and Afanassieff ("The Church Which Presides in Love") look at the meaning of "primacy" as a permanent, through changing, factor of "catholic" ecclesiology.

SECOND LOOK AT THE SECOND COMING: SORTING THROUGH THE SPECULATIONS

Author: T.L. FRAZIER #: 10631
Read a balanced, well-researched treatment of the end times, interpreted from the Christian East by faithful Orthodox saints, martyrs, and Spirit-filled Fathers of the faith. Historic Christian teaching on the rapture, the millennium, the state of Israel, and the role of the Church in the last days is something quite different from what is commonly taught in today`s evangelicalism.
