New books

History, Truth, Holiness

Bishop Maxim's first book, described by Fr. John Breck as an "exceptionally important collection of essays" contributing to both the theology of being and also contemporary theological questions, is now available!

Christos Yannaras describes Bishop Maxim as "a theologian who illumines" and Fr. John McGuckin identifies his work as "deeply biblical and patristic, academically learned yet spiritually rich." The first half of the book collects papers emphasizing theological ontology and epistemology, reminding us how both the mystery of the Holy Trinity and that of the Incarnation demand that we rethink every philosophical supposition; it includes chapters on holiness as otherness, truth and history, and the biochemistry of freedom. The second half of the book features lectures dedicated to the theological questions posed by modern theology, including studies of Orthodox and Roman Catholic ecclesiology, liturgics, and the theology of icons.

“Notes on Ecumenism” by Holy Father Justin (Popovich), prepared by Bishop Atanasije, published by Tvrdoš Monastery, 2010

With the blessing of Bishop Atanasije, we wish to inform our readers that a new book by Holy Avva Justin has been printed, NOTES ON ECUMENISM. This book, comprised of 35 pages with 12 facsimiles of Holy Avva Justin's notes, is an important complement to his book, "The Orthodox Church and Ecumenism".

The new book was prepared by Bishop Atanasije and published by Tvrdoš Monastery.

Ecumenism is a movement that in itself swarms with many questions. And all those questions, in fact, spring from one wish and recede into one wish. And that wish wants one thing: the True Church of Christ. And the true Church of Christ provides, and should provide, answers to all the questions and sub questions posed by Ecumenism. For if the Church of Christ does not resolve the eternal questions of the human spirit, then it is wholly unnecessary.
