Other items...

Learn about early Christianity in the British Isles here. Comprehensive, interesting, inspiring!

A new fiction novel from Light and Life Publishing: A Rebel's Journey: A Novel of Doubt and Christian Transformation, by Fr. Alexander Goussetis. This is an intriguing novel about life, freedom, and peace by a Greek Orthodox priest. The main character, growing up in the late 60's and early 70's, struggles toward spiritual maturity, wondering whether the wisdom of his ancestors is still relevant in the contemporary world. Through his experiences, relationships, and life obstacles, he comes full circle and discovers this truth alive in the Orthodox faith. The study guide which follows is ideal not only for personal growth but can be used in a family, group, or ministry setting with young people and adults. The author offers superb insights for today's questioning young adults about the church. Highly recommended.

Hear Metropolitan Jonah speak and celebrate Vespers at St. Joseph Orthodox Church, Wheaton at 7 pm on Saturday, July 25!

Study online for an Orthodox Studies degree at The Orthodox Pastoral School.

Read Christian books online at The Christian Classics Ethereal Library. The mission of the CCEL is to build up the church by making classic Christian writings available and promoting their use. They also offer books on CD, like their Early Church Fathers collection, and downloadable books for Amazon's Kindle electronic reading device.

Do you own an Amazon Kindle electronic reading device? Check out the list of "Books for the Amazon Kindle," at left.

Hope these bits and bytes of information will give you some ideas for reading and studying this summer! Blessings to all!
