After a long holiday hiatus, we're back, and we're excited to share our best-sellers with you.
7. Great Church in Captivity, Steven Runciman
Currently in use as a textbook here in Brookline, this book can be found in many the backpack of a Holy Cross student. Runicman's account of the Patriarchate is at once arresting and accessible.
6. Making of the New Testament, Theodore Stylianopoulos
Since being reviewed in the November issue of the Orthodox Observer, this book has been flying off our shelves. Fr. Stylianopoulos' message is one that, according to reviewer Fr. Stanley Harakas, "bishops, priests, theologians, and religious educators should take seriously."
5. Daily Prayers for Orthodox Christians, Holy Cross Orthodox Press
A perennial favorite, this handy prayer book features prayers in both English and Greek.
4. A Pocket Prayer Book, Antiochian Archdiocese
Don't let the size fool you--this little prayer book contains the entire Divine Liturgy, as well as many occasional prayers.
3. At the End of Time, Bishop Gerasimos
The Book of Revelation is an ever-present topic in Evangelical circles, but what do the Orthodox have to say about it? In this compact volume, Bishop Gerasimos guides us through the church's eschatological beliefs.
2. The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrystosom, Pew Edition, Holy Cross Orthodox Press
This pew edition is used by Orthodox churches around the world. Features the Liturgy, Trisagion, and Memorial Services in Greek and English.
1. Service of Small Paraklesis, Holy Cross Orthodox Press
It's no surprise that the Service of Small Paraklesis is this week's best-seller: like the Divine Liturgy, it is used by churches around the world. Features the entire service in Greek and English.
