BIBLE STUDY DOWNLOADS

This is a great resource of "Bible Studies" based on the Gospel and Epistle readings from St. Athanasius Orthodox Church in Santa Barbara CA.

These Bible Studies represent our best effort to describe what the Church Fathers have had to say about the Church Lectionary, which has its roots in Apostolic times, and which has a topic prescribed for each given day.

CLASSICAL CHRISTIANITY

Please check out this wonderful resource @ www.ClassicalChristianity.com
Classical Christianity is an effort to further enhance, edify, and educate our fellow brethren in the Orthodox Church and help non-Orthodox become more familiar with our teachings; in particular, teachings of the Holy Fathers. We aim to organize the teachings of the Fathers and any articles that we write so that those of us in this busy society can easily access them and “acquire the mind of the Fathers,” as Fr. Seraphim Rose says.

THE HEAVENLY BANQUET - Understanding The Divine Liturgy

The Heavenly Banquet - Understanding The Divine Liturgy

YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST PURCHASE THIS BOOK TODAY!!!

Simply an AMAZING commentary on the Divine Liturgy!!!

And it is more than a liturgical Commentary. It is filled with an abundance of "copiously documented biblical citations and rich patristic references." The author, Fr. Emmanuel Hatzidakis, brilliantly explains every aspect of the Divine Liturgy, and weaves through the text 40 "Mini Studies" expounding Doctrinal, Ecclesiological, and Moral Issues. He also adds 40 "A Word About..." where he provides expanded commentary on words and actions of the Liturgy.

If You Desire For Your Church To Have Liturgical Renewal, Then This Is The Book For Instruction And Illumination.

NATHANIEL, Archbishop of Detroit says, "The Heavenly Banquet will forever banish that unfortunate utterance, 'I get nothing out of the Liturgy!'"

Fr. Thomas Hopko, says "...an absolutely spectacular book...an extraordinary book...totally awesome..."

THE ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN DOGMA OF THE HOLY TRINITY

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty...and in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages, Light of Light, true God of true God...and in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, Who spoke by the prophets. (The Nicene Creed)

Listen to Fr. Thomas Hopko explain The Holy Trinity

Blessed Seraphim Rose's Dream of Vladyka Averky

"Particularly dangerous pastors among such false shepherds are those who preach a need for peace with everyone, under the pretext of “non-condemnation” and “Christian love and forgiveness”. Let us remember that the peace with the Antichrist (as with his servants) is already a betrayal of Christ - and hence enmity against Christ!"
-Vladyka Averky (Taushev) of blessed memory

SUBSCRIBE TO THE NEW ORTHODOX WEBSITE "ORTHODOX ETHOS"

ANNOUNCING A NEW ORTHODOX WEBSITE: ORTHODOXETHOS.COM
We bring to the attention of all devout Orthodox Christians and sincere inquirers the launch of a new website dedicated to the Orthodox Way, Truth and Life: orthodoxethos.com.
The site will be primarily a source for going deeper into the Orthodox phronema and ethos, or mindset and way of being and living. Our focus will be both "orthodoxy" and the orthodox "ethos," these being inseparable. Given that the way (ethos), the truth (dogma) and the life (spiritual life) are one, Christ, our offering will touch on all of these and stress their unity.
Orthodox Ethos is a collective effort of nearly a dozen Orthodox Christians, ordained and lay. Original articles, translations of timely and important texts and the publications of Uncut Mountain Press are among the subject matter of our modest effort.
Our site will be unique in that we will focus on the connection between dogma and ethos, and attempt to assist the neophyte (especially) to acquire not only an Orthodox confession of faith but an Orthodox ethos. Also, in connection with the publication plan of Uncut Mountain Press, we will also focus on translations from Greek, including excerpts from those books now slated for publication (The Ecumenism Conference Proceedings and St. Gregory Plamas' On the Procession of the Holy Spirit) and also in the future, some of the works of Dr. Demetrios Tselingides.
We also have a special section dedicated to the Pan Orthodox Council.
The Editor of Orthodox Ethos is Fr. Peter Heers
Please come for a visit and sign up on our mailing list to be kept informed of our new articles, videos and comments.
