Parenting toward the KINGDOM: Orthodox Christian Principals of Child Rearing
by Philip Mamalakis, PHD

The Orthodox Christian tradition is filled with wisdom and guidance about the biblical path of salvation. Yet this guidance remains largely inaccessible to parents and often disconnected from the parenting challenges we face in our homes. Parenting Toward the Kingdom will help you make the connections between the spiritual life as we understand it in the Orthodox Church and the ongoing challenges of raising children. It takes the best child development research and connects it with the timeless truths of our Christian faith to offer you real strategies for navigating the challenges of daily life.

Dr. Mamalakis directs the field education program and teaches classes on pastoral care,marriage and family, grief, death and dying, and topics related to pastoral counseling. He has a private practice in Newton, Massachusetts, where he works with individuals, couples, and families. Dr. Mamalakis has an M.Div. from Holy Cross and a Ph.D. from Purdue University in child development and family studies, specializing in marriage and family therapy. He has been offering parenting courses and writing on parenting for 21 years. He enjoys leading seminars and retreats on intimacy, relationships, marriage, parenting, and family life as well as Orthodoxy and psychology.


NEW EDITION

Saint Paisios of Mount Athos
by Hieromonk Isaac
Translated by Hieromonk Alexis (Trader) PhD, and Fr Peter Heers
Edited by Hieromonk Alexis (Trader) PhD, Fr Evdokimos (Goranitis) and Philip Navarro

Two years has already passed since 13th January 2015, the day when Elder Paisios of the Holy Mountain was declared a Saint of Orthodox Church by the decision of the Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. Since then he has been venerated as a Saint, even though he was considered a Saint during his lifetime.
Saint Paisios of Mount Athos (1924-1994) was one of the greatest and most revered elders of the Orthodox Church in the twentieth century. An inheritor and conveyed of the ascetic ethos and dogmatic consciousness of the Holy Apostles and Holy Fathers, he lived the monastic life in obscurity on the Holy Mountain of Athos in northern Greece but became a beacon of true life in Christ to faithful throughout the world. He committed himself entirely into the hands of God and God in turn gave him as a light and guide to all who seek the Truth and salvation....

This is the second Edition in English, since the first edition has gone out of print. This book has been very warmly received, especially in Australia.

Know the Faith: A Handbook for Orthodox Christian Inquirers
by Fr. Michael Shanbour

Over the centuries since the Great Schism between the Eastern and Western Churches, the two groups have diverged to the point that they often no longer understand each other’s vocabulary, let alone the fundamental concepts on which each faith is built. Know the Faith is an attempt to present Orthodox Christianity in a way Western Christians can understand, grounding each point in Scripture and patristic theology, with comparisons to what Catholics and Protestants believe. Whether you are an Orthodox Christian seeking to explain your faith to others or an inquirer into this ancient faith, Know the Faith will help you understand and communicate the Orthodox faith as never before.

Shepherding Sam
by Melinda Johnson

Sam’s Aunt Eva says he’s like a tornado—he causes a ruckus everywhere he goes. But Aunt Eva won’t give up on Sam, and neither will Saucer, the monastery’s corgi puppy. Saucer lives at the monastery, but he dreams of herding sheep. With no sheep in his life, Saucer tries to herd everyone else—farm animals, nuns, and especially Sam. Sam doesn’t want to follow anyone, not even a funny puppy. But Saucer knows that if he just keeps trying, he can bring this lonely boy back to the flock.

The Jesus Prayer and its Application
by Archim Arsenios Katerelos

The new book titled «The Jesus Prayer and its application», by the respected and beloved Elder, Arsenios Katerelos – a very familiar Spiritual Father, Preacher and author in our Homeland – constitutes an invaluable aid for a Christian’s introduction to the art of the precious “Jesus Prayer”. The Archimandrite Elder Arsenios has deposited the sacred experiences and the teachings of the Elders, Saint Paisios the Hagiorite and Isaac the Lebanese, near whom he had learnt the monk’s way of life, enriched with the teaching of the holy Fathers, but also with the discretion that has been based on his own hesychastic experience.

Latest Addition to our Bookstore

A while ago, we told you about a new book, titled, "Metropolitan Augoustinos N. Kantiotes: A Short Biography," that was on its way to our bookstore. Well, we would just like to let everyone know that it has arrived and is now available for purchase in-store. Come in and pick it up for the low price of only $14.00. Hurry, while stocks last. For more information, please see below.

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..."
