New Book Wednesdays: Journey to the Kingdom
Dear Students and Friends,
Do you want to know more about our Liturgy and how it relates to heaven? Our new book this week is "Journey to the Kingdom" by Fr Vassilios Papavassiliou and published by Paraclete Press.
Here's what Paraclete has to say about this September offering:
The Orthodox Liturgy is not just an act of worship, but a potentially life-changing journey. Fr Papavassiliou takes you through this journey with clarity and passion, exploring the Liturgy as a reflection of heavenly worship, and an invitation to enter the Kingdom of God. The hymns, prayers, creed and actions of the Liturgy are explained, covering subjects such as Communion, Trinity, baptism, sainthood, Resurrection, and much more. The book includes a map to guide you on your journey and 20 illustrations.
You can earn 2 credits for reading this book. Read the book, complete the General Worksheet for Books (from the Lessons tab, above) and email your work to else10(at)gmail.com. Your credit will then be awarded.
You can buy the book on Paraclete here or on Amazon here.
