Even thirty years ago, it was not easy to find books about the Orthodox Christian faith in the English language. Now, as many people are discovering the truth and beauty of Orthodoxy, a rich treasury of literature has become available, especially through book stores and publishers such as:
- St. Nicholas Orthodox Books
- St. Vladimir’s Seminary Press
- St. Tikhon’s Monastery Bookstore and Press
- Ancient Faith Store
- Alexander Press
Many Orthodox books, as well as the Orthodox Study Bible, have now become available, in printed and in digital versions, through Indigo/Chapters/Coles and through Amazon.
An excellent journal of Orthodox faith and culture is Road to Emmaus, published quarterly and available by subscription.
A very well produced Christian history series written by scholars from a variety of Christian traditions, not only from an Orthodox perspective, is the The Christians, Their First Two Thousand Years, available in a 12-book series. The complimentary web-based journal is The Christians.com, which also has home-school and study materials.
Here are a few books that have been meaningful to us as the St. Nikolai Mission community. Over time, we hope to add more recommended titles here, to help you on your journey with Christ.
- The Orthodox Church by Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware)
- The Orthodox Way by Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware)
- For the Life of the World by Fr. Alexander Schmemann
- The Eucharist by Fr. Alexander Schmemann
- Orthodox Bible Study Series by Fr. Lawrence Farley
