FOR THE LIFE OF THE WORLD: SACRAMENTS AND ORTHODOXY

Author: ALEXANDER SCHMEMANN #: 10585
In For the Life of the World Alexander Schmemann suggests an approach to the world and life within it, which stems from the liturgical experience of the Orthodox Church. He understands issues such as secularism and Christian culture from the perspective of the unbroken experience of the Church, as revealed and communicated in her worship, in her liturgy — the sacrament of the world, the sacrament of the Kingdom.

THE ANOINTING OF THE SICK

Author: PAUL MEYENDORFF #: 10586
The healing ministry of Jesus Christ is a primary task of the Church. This work describes the healing ministry of the Church as it is expressed in Scripture, Tradition, and the liturgical life, focusing particularly on the sacrament of the anointing of the sick. The author discusses both the history and theology of this sacrament, which has its roots in the Tradition of the Church as expressed in James 5.14(–) 15: “Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” The theology of this rite embraces the whole person and addresses the connection between sin and sickness, and the disintegrating power of illness on a person and the reintegrating power of grace. A new translation of the rite is appended, as well as an abbreviated version for use in a hospital or home setting.

THE TIME OF THE SPIRIT: READINGS THROUGH THE CHRISTIAN YEAR

Author: #: 10587
The purpose of this anthology is to show how time — the sequence of days, months, and seasons — can be taken up into Christ, and so be sanctified and transfigured. In so doing, it reveals some of the unfamiliar treasures to be found in three great traditions of the Church: Roman Catholic, Orthodox and Anglican. Beginning in September with the creation of the world, the sequence of sacred time unfolds. In October the theme is the human person; later comes the cycle of Christ`s incarnation, death and resurrection leading to Pentecost and the revelation of the Trinity; the book ends in August with the final glory of the age to come. Within each month some of the more important saints or their works are featured.

THE ORTHODOX LITURGY: THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE EUCHARISTIC LITURGY IN THE BYZANTINE RITE

Author: HUGH WYBREW #: 10590
Observers from Western churches never fail to be awestruck at a celebration of the liturgy in an Orthodox church. Naturally, many questions follow: How has the Orthodox liturgy been shaped? How different is it from the Eucharistic rites of the Western churches? Hugh Wybrew`s authoritative, but splendidly readable, book traces step-by-step the story of the development of the Orthodox liturgy from the Last Supper to the present day and vividly conveys a sense of the experience of the worshipers.

THE YEAR OF GRACE OF THE LORD: A SCRIPTURAL AND LITURGICAL COMMENTARY ON THE CALENDAR OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH

Author: A MONK OF THE EASTERN CHURCH #: 10592
On the basis of worship of the Orthodox Church, The Year of Grace of the Lord takes the reader through the Sundays and feast days from the beginning of the year in September to the time of its completion after Pentecost. It is a guide to the scriptural readings and prayers of the calendar year and reveals the spiritual growth in Christ that is opened to us in them. In the author's words, the liturgical year is “an abridgement of the history of salvation.”

RUSSIA, RITUAL, AND REFORM: THE LITURGICAL REFORMS OF NIKON IN THE 17TH CENTURY

Author: JOHN MEYENDORFF #: 10597
Historians have generally accepted the "official" interpretation of the reform of the liturgical books conducted in Muscovite Russia in the mid-seventeenth century as a "correction" made on the basis of the ancient Greek andSlavic sources. In fact, the reform was based exclusively on contemporary sources, chiefly the 1602 Venice Euchologion (Greek) and seventeenth century South-Slavic editions from Kiev and Striatin. Far from being a "return to the sources," or a "correction," the reform consisted simply in the uncritical transposition of contemporary Greek practice onto Russian soil.
