Metropolitan Augoustinos N. Kantiotes: A Short Biography

Book excerpt:

"... Fr. Augoustinos Kantiotes was born in 1907 on the island of Paros, Greece. As a priest-monk he travelled throughout Greece, where his fiery preaching stirred people to a greater love for Christ and their suffering nation. But it was the war years and the messages he preached were not popular with the German and Italian Occupants, and later in the Civil War, with the Communists. Fr. Augoustinos' adventure-filled life included many trials and tribulations, and he miraculously escaped death many times. Loved and revered by the populace, Divine Providence saw him elected bishop of Florina in 1967, where he energetically continued to care for his flock's spiritual and material needs. But his immense popularity and his battles against corruption often disgruntled those in positions of power, and Fr. Augoustinos was subject to many persecutions, including a (failed) attempt by the government to medically diagnose him as officially insane. However none of these persecutions deterred him in his quest to uphold the Truth, and inspired by a self-sacrificing love for God and his neighbour, he influenced myriads of people and changed countless lives, up until his passing into eternal life in 2010, at the grand age of 103. Even today, his bold example, the numerous books he authored, and the publications of his sermons in print and audio form, continue to influence people to a higher standard of living.
Fr. Augoustinos is well known throughout Greece and to Greeks abroad, but this is the first time his life is presented in English. It is a short summary of a life that, if everything were to be written in detail, would fill encyclopaedia volumes. We invite you to join Fr. Augoustinos in his journeys..."

I Know a Man in Christ: Elder Sophrony the Hesychast and Theologian
by Metropolitan Hierotheos of Nafpaktos

Metropolitan Hierotheos of Nafpaktos wrote this book about Elder Sophrony as an expression of gratitude for his long association (17 years) with the Elder and "to share with readers the spiritual wealth that I unworthily received".
The first part of the book is a spiritual portrait of Elder Sophrony

The second part of the book records what the author learnt and experienced during visits to the Monastery of St John the Baptist in meetings and informal conversations with the Elder and as a concelebrant at the Divine Liturgy. Over the years he carefully recorded the Elder's words and amassed an archive of notes that he publishes here. The subjects covered reflect both Father Sophrony's and the author's personal and pastoral concerns and include prayer (particularly the Jesus Prayer); monasticism and obedience; priesthood and the temptations it brings; giving spiritual guidance; the problems facing those who become Orthodox; and family life. The discussions also shed light on theological issues close to the Elder's heart.
After the chapters arranged chronologically by year, this part of the book ends with a collection of undated sayings of the Elder which were not spoken directly to the author but were passed on to him by others.
The book shows us a "great hesychast and theologian, but also a wise, discerning and prophetic spiritual father" and brings us closer to the man in Christ.

Will be available for purchase in-store for only $35 upon the arrival of stock.

The Mystery of Art: Becoming an Artist in the Image of God
by Jonathan Jackson

Emmy Award-winning actor and musician Jonathan Jackson explores the profound implications of human creativity in the image of God, along with the process of becoming an artist (of any sort) dedicated to practicing his or her art from the context of a deep relationship with God. The true Christian artist is not necessarily one who treats religious themes, but one who creates through the power of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God.

With the lyrical immediacy that narrates his own path as a Christian and an artist, Jonathan Jackson draws on both his own experience and the richness of the theological tradition of the Orthodox Church to present not only intelligent thinking on aesthetics nor his contemplations on spiritual matters, but a fresh and genuine spiritual path for all artists and indeed for all persons. A delight to read, this book is not merely written—it sings.
—Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick, Author of Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy and An Introduction to God

A Hesychast from the Holy Mountain in the Heart of a City
by Athanasios Papathanasiou

Elder Porphyrios of Kavsokalyvia (1906–1991), who was formally glorified as a saint by the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in November 2013

This is a short study of the life and teaching of Saint Porphyrios and is, in the words of its author Athanasios Papathanasiou, ‘an exercise in encounter with the present’. He takes into consideration present realities and conditions, both in the Church and society, and in the light of theology understood as a living discipline, endeavours to determine certain particular qualities of the saint, drawing particularly on the saint's own words as recorded in the book "Wounded by Love". His insights and interpretations have an immediacy and freshness of singular relevance to our perception of what constitutes a holy personage in the modern world and point to how we can reorient our thinking accordingly.

Designed to be presented to parents at the 40-day blessing of their infant, this attractive book tells the story of how Jesus was also brought to the Temple for blessing forty days after His birth. The story is told through 18 colorful iconographic illustrations by Bonnie Gillis. Included are a page for listing the names of the parents, the child, the church, the city, the date of the blessing; a place for the signature of the priest; a memento page for a photo of the blessing; the priest’s prayer; a parent’s prayer, and two brief articles on the meaning of the blessing.


Long ago on the island of Cyprus, a cuckoo sang a prophetic song that started a series of mysterious adventures. A hermit had a vision, a proud and selfish governor was stricken with paralysis, and a princess lay dying. All these events, including the miraculous healings of the governor and the princess, were part of a plan God s plan to bring the very first icon of the Mother of God, painted by the Evangelist Luke himself, from the emperor's palace in Constantinople to a new home on the island of Cyprus. The richly detailed, jewel-toned illustrations by acclaimed fine artist Niko Chocheli and the engaging text bring this true story to life for contemporary readers of all ages.


This is a wonderful book for families preparing to have a child baptized.
Nicholas the Chatterer was an ordinary young boy who loved his home in Constantinople almost as much as he loved to talk. That is, until the day the angels caught him up out of an earthquake and taught him to sing. Then he became Nicholas the Singer. His song saved the city from the earthquakes and entered into the Church’s liturgy for all ages, as the Trisagion Hymn.
The lyrical text and vivid watercolor illustrations bring fifth-century Byzantium to life, showing children everywhere that they too can be used by God to bring blessings to all mankind. A picture book for children preschool age and up.
