BECOMING UNCREATED: THE JOURNEY TO HUMAN AUTHENTICITY

Author: DANIEL M ROGICH #: 10614
By exploring the close relationship between christology and spirituality in the thought of St Gregory Palamas, Fr Rogich proposes that the Orthodox experiential understanding of deification can satisfy the modern thirst for finding authentic human life. Jesus Christ is the true Image of what it means not only to become uncreated, or to be a saint, but also, to become a real authentic human being.

BEING STILL: REFLECTIONS ON AN ANCIENT MYSTICAL TRADITION

Author: JEAN-YVES LELOUP #: 10615
For more than fifteen hundred years Christianity has cultivated a rich and varied teaching on the practice of stillness and inner calm. Here we can find answers to the contemporary psychological struggle for inner peace. In a fresh and engaging reading of this ancient contemplative spirituality, Jean-Yves Leloup explores the writings of many spiritual masters from across the centuries. In particular he focuses on the Desert Fathers, the fourth-century monk Evagrius, St. John Cassian, and the anonymous 19th-century author of The Way of the Pilgrim.

ONE FLEW OVER THE ONION DOME: AMERICAN ORTHODOX CONVERTS, RETREADS & REVERTS

Author: FR. JOSEPH DAVID HUNEYCUTT #: 10616
Converts to the Orthodox Church are sometimes stunned by the ethnic ghetto they seem to have landed in. Cradle Orthodox are no less amazed by these zealous sometimes apparently nutty converts. And priests seem to often not have a clue as to how to deal with the mixed blessing of newcomers. How on earth can we all understand each other? More importantly what can we learn from each other?

SELECTED ESSAYS

Author: PROTOPRESBYTER MICHAEL POMAZANSKY #: 10617
In this collection of sixteen essays Fr. Michael Pomazansky examines and evaluates the errors of modernism which today agitate world-wide Orthodoxy. These humble and gentle, yet penetrating essays lack the angry tone of some writers, and are therefore all the more valuable for today`s reader. Among the subjects he examines are: The Liturgical Theology of Fr. A. Schmemann, The Church of Christ and the Contemporary Movement for Unification in Christianity, On the Question of Toll-Houses, and many more. This volume also contains a short biography of Fr. Michael, who died in 1988 at the age of 100. He graduated from a pre-Revolutionary Russian seminary, and was for many years Professor of Theology at Holy Trinity Monastery, Jordanville, New York.

TOWARD AN AMERICAN ORTHODOX CHURCH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AN AUTOCEPHALOUS ORTHODOX CHURCH

Author: ALEXANDER BOGOLEPOV #: 10618
The Orthodox Church is a communion of local churches, internally self-governing but united in faith and sacramental life. Orthodox ecclesiology aims at "unity in plurality," allowing Orthodoxy to adapt to new circumstances and embed itself in a variety of cultural contexts. But this ecclesiology now faces new challenges — nationalism, communism and massive emigration to the Americas and other lands. Orthodox Christians in the West face the critical question of how to establish a local church.

THE GOSPEL IMAGE OF CHRIST: THE CHURCH AND MODERN CRITICISM

Author: VESELIN KESICH #: 10621
Like the icon, the gospel image of Christ emerges from the living tradition of the Church. Like the icon, the gospels are the product of a period of preparation, witness and meditation. Like the icon, they are the Church`s expression of its faith.

Over twenty years ago, Professor Kesich wrote The Gospel Image of Christ: The Church and Modern Criticism. This completely rewritten and enlarged book represents the fruit of Professor Kesich`s lifetime interest in the study of “biblical criticism.” He has added chapters regarding the dating and chronology and the history of the gospels, reevaluating the Gnostic gospels and the titles and images which the earliest Christians considered adequate to answer the question of who Jesus is. He has also addressed questions raised by some new approaches to gospel research. For all practical purposes, this is a new book with the old title, which best conveys its major purpose. The basic perspective of the previous work, as well as still valid material, has been retained from the first edition.

I SAW THE HOLY LIGHT

THE CHALLENGE OF OUR PAST: STUDIES IN ORTHODOX CANON LAW AND CHURCH HISTORY

Author: JOHN H. ERICKSON #: 10625
The Church is not a static object. It lives in time, in history. This means that its past is not just a matter of fact. It also poses a challenge. Christians are obliged to take seriously the problem of historical change. They must reflect on what gives the Church its identity in time and space, even in the midst of change.
