ORTHODOX WORSHIP: A LIVING CONTINUITY WITH THE TEMPLE, THE SYNAGOGUE AND THE EARLY CHURCH

Author: BENJAMIN D. WILLIAMS AND HAROLD B. ANSTALL #: 10581
The two authors have discovered in the Orthodox liturgy a living continuity with the worship of Judaism (temple and synagogue) and the Early Church. Written in a non-theological manner for the average lay person, this book offers inspired insights into the Orthodox liturgy that will rivet the attention of the reader. Early Christians preserved a continuity of worship from the Old Covenant to the New, employing elements from the Jewish Temple liturgy, the synagogue liturgy and the rituals of the Jewish home. Shows how divinely revealed Old Testament worship is not only continued but also fulfilled in the Orthodox liturgy. A line-by-line explanation of the liturgy is included.

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.

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.
