Holy Trinity Publications is the name given to the publishing work of Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, New York. Founded in 1930, the monastery began both printing and publishing books in 1947, operating its own print shop of St. Job of Pochaev within the monastery. Since then some five hundred works have been published in both Russian and English. In particular, the monastery played an important role in providing spiritual literature to believers in Russia during the seventy plus years of Communist rule. Holy Trinity Publications now seeks to take this work into the future, making the heritage of Orthodox Russia accessible to all today who seek to live a life of faithfulness to God within His Holy Church.
Feature of the Month
Conforming the Will of Man to the Will of God
by St John of Tobolsk
trans. Nicholas Kotar
May our love for the Sun, the will of God, be as strong as the sunflower's, so that even in days of hardship and sorrow we will continue to sail unerringly along the sea of life, following the directions of the barometer and compass of God's will that leads us to the safe haven of eternity.
This is a thoroughly practical manual of the spiritual life focusing on the central goal of every Christian: learning the will of God and struggling to mold our life to it, just as Christ "humbled Himself and became obedient." (Phil. 2:8) Even more fundamentally, St John addresses the question of why we should care about God's will. Finally, the reader will find eternal wisdom running through these writings on questions of theodicy, free will, and Divine Providence.
