THE BURNING BUSH

Author: LEV GILLET #: 10416
God revealed Himself to Moses as a fire which burns but does not consume. Lev Gillet, an Orthodox monk, uses this symbol of God as the center of a meditation on the life of a Christian. Jesus, Gillet tells us, is the fullest manifestation of the God who revealed himself to Moses in the burning bush. He is the one who shows us how to undertake the way he lived, a way which reveals "the God of Limitless Love, the love which burns but does not consume."

ORTHODOX SPIRITUALITY: AN OUTLINE OF THE ORTHODOX ASCETICAL AND MYSTICAL TRADITION

Author: A MONK IN THE EASTERN CHURCH #: 10422
This unpretentious little book — now revised and expanded — has long been recognized as a trusty guide for those wishing to explore the Orthodox ascetical and mystical tradition. As the introduction observes, the book is neither a scholarly history of Orthodox spirituality, nor a far-reaching treatise on ascetical and mystical graces, nor a description of the psychological state of Orthodox mystics. It is intended as a short and very simply introduction to the first principles of the spirituality of the Orthodox Church. At the same time, Orthodox Spirituality is a remarkably thorough introduction to Orthodox doctrine, for Orthodox spirituality cannot be properly understood apart from the theological teaching on which it rests: that the aim of man`s life is union with God and deification in Christ through the Holy Spirit.

DO SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL FOR GOD

Author: ANTHONY M. CONIARIS #: 10423
What is true beauty? What kind of beauty pleases God most? Is there a beauty that can “save the world” (Dostoevsky)? Is holiness beauty? Captivated by the beauty of the transfigured Savior, the Church seeks to express God’s beauty through liturgy, icons, vestments etc., as it calls on us also to respond by doing something beautiful for God. In the words of one theologian, “Where there is beauty apparent, let us enjoy it. Where there is beauty hidden, let us unveil it. Where there is beauty defaced, let us restore it. Where there is no beauty at all, let us create it.”
