THE ANGELS AND THEIR MISSION ACCORDING TO THE FATHERS OF THE CHURCH

Author: JEAN DANIELOU #: 10603
In this present work, Father Jean Danielou provides us with a learned, yet readable treatment of the mission of the angels in the economy of salvation. He begins by following a historical order, dealing with the angels in the world before the Incarnation, during our Lord's earthly life, and presiding over the growth and development of the Church. We then have luminous chapters on the guardian angels, on the angels and the sacraments, the spiritual life, death and the second coming. Father Danielou's work is notable for its synthesis which it achieves between the teaching of the Church Fathers and later theological speculation on the angels. It fills a gap of long-standing in theological literature, and may be read with great profit by students and the general public alike.

CELEBRATION OF FAITH, VOL. III: THE VIRGIN MARY

Author: ALEXANDER SCHMEMANN #: 10607
This volume, the third in a collection of sermons by Fr Alexander Schmemann, is on a topic that was particularly close to his heart: the Virgin Mary. The Theotokos, as Mary is usually referred to among the Orthodox, figures prominently in Byzantine liturgical worship. While no single service is without one or more references to her, Eastern Orthodox theological manuals have little to say about Mary beyond repeating the primarily Christological titles affirmed by the Third Ecumenical Council — Theotokos, Birthgiver of God.
