ORTHODOX PASTORAL SERVICE

Author: ARCHIMANDRITE KYPRIAN KERN TRANSLATED BY MARY GODDARD EDITED BY FR. WILLIAM C. MILLS #: 10511
Nearly fifty years ago, the Eastern Orthodox monk and theologian, Archimandrite Kyprian Kern, explored pertinent issues regarding pastoral ministry. Kern`s writings on clericalism and problems with the abuse of power and authority in the Church, for example, are as fresh today as when they were first written. Kern is probably the least known among Orthodox theologians in the West; however, his voice is now being heard for the first time in English and hopefully will inspire and encourage a new generation of clergy and laity who seek to better understand ministry in an Orthodox Christian context. Orthodox Pastoral Service is a collection of lecture notes from Kern`s classes in pastoral ministry. In this book, Kern deals with important issues such as clericalism, the importance of the Eucharist for the life of the priest, and emphasis on the intellectual, spiritual, and personal preparation for the priesthood. Finally, one could look at this book as a historical document. On this level, Kern has left us with a detailed exposition of pastoral ministry in 19th century Russia.

ORTHODOX PASTOR: A GUIDE TO PASTORAL THEOLOGY

Author: ARCHBISHOP JOHN SHAHOVSKOY #: 10512
Pastors will benefit from the simplicity and exuberance conveyed throughout this book and expressed in the author`s opening statement: "There is nothing more awe-inspiring and more blessed than the service of pastorship." First published in Russia in the 1930s, this volume nevertheless retains the essence of pastoral work in ever-changing circumstances and cultures: the formation and eternal destiny of the human soul. The author passionately writes about this unchanging ministry, and his words remain refreshingly timely, especially in an era marked by temptations to follow material excess and success.

THE AESTHETIC FACE OF BEING: ART IN THE THEOLOGY OF PAVEL FLORENSKY

Author: VICTOR BYCHKOV #: 10515
This work examines Florensky’s preoccupation with the centrality of art, specifically classical iconography, for the meaning of man. The work of Florensky in this field is arguably the basis and inspiration for the noted studies of Prince Evgeny Trubetskoi, which have served to retrieve the art of iconography from its romantic, nineteenth-century deformations and restore it to its classical and canonical form.

THE OPEN DOOR: ENTERING THE SANCTUARY OF ICONS AND PRAYER

Author: FREDERICA MATHEWES-GREEN #: 10516
Unlike many books of meditations on icons, this book presents a unique opportunity for readers to visit an imaginary church and see icons “in action” throughout the year—to stand alongside worshipers for whom the use of icons is a natural part of their devotional lives. Reproductions of icons on the book jacket and in the inside text allow the reader to view the icons that would be found in a typical contemporary Orthodox church, as Frederica Mathewes-Green explains their history and theology. Stories of saints and texts of the prayers appointed for the day enhance the devotional quality of the book. Anyone interested in understanding and “praying with” icons will benefit from this warmhearted, practical guide.

THE IMAGE OF GOD THE FATHER: ON ORTHODOX THEOLOGY AND ICONOGRAPHY

Author: STEVEN BIGHAM #: 10519
Fr Steven has given us a unique set of essays for edification, discussion and even comment and disagreement. His exposition on “God the Father” returns us to the roots of Orthodox iconography from which practitioners have strayed so completely, especially in recent centuries. Today, there is a tremendous interest in authentic iconography engendered by greater freedom to travel in such countries as Russia where eighteenth century icons of “God the Father” abound. Travelers see these icons and come back with many questions which Fr. Steven`s study answers. More important, the broad interest in traditional Christianity throughout the English-speaking world has generated this need to present authentic expression of the faith. This continues the tradition of the publisher and the author who have collaborated on translations of other worthy efforts to describe Orthodox iconography and spirituality.
