How Our Departed Ones Live

The Experience of the Orthodox Church

by Monk Mitrophan; trans. by Archpriest John Shaw

2nd English edition

Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Conqueror of death, and, consequently, of the death of our departed ones. Let us say to them in Him, not 'Farewell,' but 'Until we meet again, beloved spouse, good parents, dear brother or sister. Until we meet again!'

While many are now abandoning traditional religious practice, none the less, the reality of death and questions regarding the afterlife remain at the forefront of spiritual consciousness. How Our Departed Ones Live is the answer to those who seek the truth as expressed through the experience of the Orthodox Church. This comprehensive book discusses the source of death and mortality, the inner connection and mutual relationship between the living and the departed, intercession by the living for the departed, and life beyond the grave. It will comfort the grieving and inspire all Christians to strengthen their resolve as they seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness.

The Four Gospels

Commentary on the Holy Scriptures of the New Testament, Vol. 1

by Archbishop Averky (Taushev)

Analyzing all four Gospels chronologically and simultaneously, Archbishop Averky allows the reader to see the life of Christ as an unfolding narrative in accessible, direct language. Writing in the tradition of biblical exegetes such as St John Chrysostom and Blessed Theophylact of Bulgaria, he provides a commentary that is firmly grounded in the teaching of the Church, manifested in its liturgical hymnography and the works of the Holy Fathers. This study will be an indispensable addition to the library of every student of the Gospels.

Season of Repentance

Lenten Homilies of Saint John of Kronstadt

by John Ilyich Sergiyev

To be released in time for Great Lent. This is the first new material by this great pre-revolutionary Russian pastor and miracle-worker to appear in English since My Life in Christ in 1897. The sermons are an exhortation to repentance; that is, a reorientation of our life away from everything that is superfluous and a turning toward God as our Creator and Lord. They bring us ultimately to Holy Friday and to the foot of the Cross of Christ. Thus, the saint concludes:

"Let us love Truth, let us love mercy, that we may be shown mercy."

Worship at Holy Trinity Monastery

by Holy Trinity Monastery and Seminary Choir

Тема этого диска – освящение или искупление времени посредством богослужения, сквозь призму богатой музыкальной традиции Свято-Троицкого монастыря в г. Джорданвилль (шт. Нью Йорк. Песнопения взяты из всех богослужебный кругов церковного года – дневного круга: от полунощницы до повечерия, недельного круга - Октоих, годичного круга - Минея, и особого круга, т.н. движущегося, Пасхального - Триодь Постная и Цветная. Все песнопения раскрывают широту и богатство музыкальной традиции Джорданвилля в нынешнем его исполнении.

This recording explores the sanctification of time through the particular lens of the rich musical tradition of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY. The hymns are taken from all the cycles of church services – the daily cycle from the midnight office to compline, the weekly cycle of the Octoechos, the yearly cycle of the Menaion, and the moveable cycle of the Triodion and Pentecostarion, which revolves around the feast of feasts – Pascha. These hymns serve to demonstrate the range and breadth of the musical tradition in Jordanville as it is sung today.

Оптина Пустынь и ее время

И.М. Кинцевич

2-е издание

В наше время не сложно найти книги о монашестве, умном делании, старчестве. К сожалению, книг, написанных опытными носителями древней традиции Русского Православного монашеского делания достаточно мало. В этом и состоит преимущество книги И.М. Концевича «Оптина пустынь и ее время». Сам автор духовно окормлялся у Оптинских старцев, и традиции древнего старчества являлись главным интересом его исследовательской деятельности и личной духовной жизни. Этот труд, приготовленный к печати вдовой Ивана Михайловича, составлен на основе уникальных материалов, писем самих Оптинских старцев и воспоминаний современников.

Covers - pravda of ubiistveПравда об убийстве Царской семьи

Историко-критический очерк

Павел Пагануцци

Репринтное издание

По словам самого автора, работа не является попыткой реабилитировать Имп. Николая II как человека и государственного деятеля. Тем не менее, в целях восстановления истины, автор документально опровергает домыслы и злостные выдумки советских авторов и западных историков, которые до нашего времени не скупятся на чернила и бумагу, чтобы постоянно очернять до предела замученную в чекистском застенке Царскую Семью. В этой книге, читатель найдет наиболее полное и объективное исследование убийства Царской Семьи. В ней систематизированы все документальные факты, касающиеся этого трагического эпизода русской истории.

Recollections of Jerusalem

 Recollections of Jerusalem

By Anya Berezina Derrick


Anya Derrick’s life has been intimately connected to the earthly city of Jerusalem in Palestine where she was raised in the spirit of Holy Russia, as manifested in the life of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission, the Mount of Olives and Gethsemane convents, as well as the Bethany School.  

Her spiritual life was nurtured by St John (Maximovitch) of Shanghai and San Francisco, Archbishop Antony (Sinkevich) of Los Angeles, the hieromonk Lazarus (Moore), and Mother Mary (Robinson).  

These recollections also offer a window into the struggles and aspirations of the Russian diaspora after the Communist takeover of the ancestral homeland. It shows how events such as the Russian revolution, its aftermath, and the Arab–Israeli conflict have shaped present realities.

This book is a critical study of the the interaction between Russian Church and society in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.  Whilst other studies exist that draw attention to the voices in the Church typified as “liberal” in the years leading up to the Revolution, this work introduces the reader to a wide range of “conservative” opinion that equally strove for spiritual renewal and the spread of the Gospel.

Indication of the Way

into the Kingdom of Heaven

An Introduction to Christian Life

By Saint Innocent of Alaska

This introduction to what it means to be a Christian appeals both to the heart and mind of its readers. Its timelessness and universality are beyond dispute as it has been in print continually in English for sixty years and for nearly 180 years in its original Aleut and then Russian language editions. This new edition includes "Points for Reflection" that can be used both by an individual reader and for a group study. 

The author,  Priest John Veniaminov, was a Russian born and raised in Siberia. He went on to become Bishop of a massive trans continental diocese and ultimately the Metropolitan of Moscow, the most senior Bishop of the Russian Orthodox Church. He is most widely known today by the simple title of St Innocent of Alaska.
