I am trying in the following pages to prove the contrary to that opinion. "Our Christian mysticism is wholly different form Buddhistic mysticism, just as much as from modern materialism. It is a vision of realities beyond and through transparent symbols and signs of the material universe. This is one of the fundamental teachings of our ancient church of Christ, based upon the Bible and the Fathers. "It is true that there were some persons in the Western World, among Germans, Dutch, Spaniards, French, English and others who were great mystics. But our mysticism is not of individual kind but collective. For our church as a whole, from the beginning on, has been mystical in its interpretation of the visible universe, things and events as well as of man's and mankind's life and destiny. "If some of my readers would learn from this essay that mysticism of the Eastern Christian Church is nothing else but the science of the highest realities, I shall be amply rewarded." Nikolai D. Velimirovich

  • Orthodox Spiritual Life According to St. Silouan the Athonite
    St. Silouan is a man of our times. He was Russian by birth, but spent the majority of his life on Mount Athos. St. Silouan's teachings are radical, but totally Christ-centered. His treatises on love of fellow man, love for one's enemies and love for all of creation are awe-inspiring. While thoroughly Christian and well grounded in the Fathers, his teachings seem quite radical at times to both Orthodox Christians as well as non-Orthodox Christians and non-Christians. Not radical in a right wing sense, but radical in his all encompassing love for all of God's creation. His views would inspire ecologists and those in the modern environmental movement. These ideas are totally in line with those of older saints like St. Isaac of Syria.

    "Dr. David Ford's articulate and lucid prose, as well as his broad familiarity with the writings of St. John Chrysostom—the most influential Biblical commentator in Eastern Christianity—make his book a most welcome and valuable contribution to Christian understanding of human nature, accessible to lay reader and specialist alike. It should be required reading for all who are interested in the deeper aspects of Patristic thought on questions of human sexuality, man-woman relationships, and the roles of men and women in family, Church, and society." —V. Rev. Dr. Alexander Golubov, Associate Professor of Spirituality and Academic Dean, St. Tikhon 's Orthodox Theological Seminary, S. Canaan, Pa. "It is necessary to read the writings of the Church Fathers, especially their popular sermons, with accuracy and empathy within the Church's total life and witness rooted in the Bible. David Ford does just this in his exhaustive study of St. John Chrysostom's teachings about women and men, gender and sexuality, marriage and monasticism, and spiritual life and service in the Christian Church. He examines the saint's thought on these complicated and controverted issues with care and compassion. His work is a rare gift for which faithful Christians will surely return admiration and gratitude." —V. Rev. Dr. Thomas Hopko, Professor of Systematic Theology and Dean of St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary, Crestwood, N. Y. In this book, through his "careful textual analysis of the writings of John Chrysostom, . . . David Ford has opened a broad window of access to these questions that has not been looked through before. Look through this window, I plead with you. Let the wisdom found there illumine present dilemmas of sexuality, family, and marriage. I pray that this book may become a means of grace to women and men seeking to embody the praise of God in their sexual and spiritual lives." —from the Foreword by Dr. Thomas C. Oden, distinguished author and Professor of Theology at Drew Graduate School and Seminary, Madison, N.J.

  • Orthodox Spirituality
    Click here to get this book on Kindle. "Orthodox spirituality has as its goal the deification of man and his union with God, without being merged with Him. It has as a basic conviction the existence of a personal God, who is the supreme source of radiating love. He prizes man and doesn't want to confuse him with Himself, but maintains and raises him to an eternal dialogue of love. Such a spirituality has no place where an evolutionary progress of man, connected to a divinity conceived as an impersonal essence, is affirmed. This progress can have no result other than man's disappearance in the impersonal divinity. But the personal God, and thus the supreme source of love, can't be conceived of as a single person, but as a community of persons in a perfect unity. You see then why the Christian teaching of a Trinity of Persons in a unity of essence is the only one which can constitute the basis of a perfect spirituality for man, understood as a full communion with God in love, without his being lost in it."

  • Joy of the Holy
    "The goal of Christian life is the acquisition of the grace of the Holy Spirit." This popular saying of St. Seraphim of Sarov serves as the basis for his teaching on the spiritual life. It is especially relevant for the faithful of contemporary society who strive to lead spiritual lives. His teaching is today attracting a remarkable amount of attention. The attraction of his teaching lies in the very practical way he presents the heights .of Orthodox Christian spiritual life as being open and accessible to all. Whatever one's status in life or position within the Church, every faithful member of the Body of Christ possesses the same potential for acquiring the grace of-the-Holy-Spirit. St. Seraphim is noted for the distinct character of his message, which is especially relevant to the needs of contemporary man.

This book is based on my doctoral thesis, entitled The Actualization of the Hypostatic Principle in the Theology of Archimandrite Sophrony, which was submitted at the Faculty of Theology of the University of Thessalonica in 1998. I have wanted since then to proceed to a more complete presentation of Fr. Sophrony's teaching. Perhaps even now I have not succeeded fully in this aim, but I have tried at least to set out the basic themes of his theology. I alone am responsible for any imperfections or omissions apparent in this book. For whatever good it may contain, the praise belongs to my ever-memorable Staretz, who is my life's greatest benefactor. Above all, it is to our Lord Jesus Christ, who manifested to us in its perfection the Pattern, the Model, the Length, and Depth, and Height, of the Person of the Father, that glory is due unto all ages.

    This study focuses on the vital role of Holy Tradition within the life of the Orthodox Church. Special attention is given to how Holy Tradition serves as the common font of the shared spiritual and liturgical life, as well as the theological teachings, that unite all Orthodox as one. Topics such as 'Christ as the Core of Holy Tradition', 'Tradition as the Life of the Holy Spirit in the Church', 'Tradition as Personal Participation', 'Holy Tradition and Holy Scripture' and the proper relationship between Tradition and ethnic customs are discussed. Based on Holy Scripture and patristic teaching, this study refers to the writings of a wide variety of Orthodox theologians, especially from Eastern European backgrounds. Although intended as introductory lectures for first-year seminarians, the reader-friendly style of HOLY TRADITION: Ecclesial Experience of Life in Christ is ideal for anyone interested in Eastern Christian spirituality and the study of Orthodox theology.

    This revised and reprinted popular work about the Typikon/Typicon outlines many aspects of the services and how they ought to be done. Topics range from proper decorum in Church, the use of flowers, the orders of censing, directions on how to celebrate a hierarchical liturgy, how to serve in the presence of a non-celebrating bishop, services of Holy Week and Pascha, cross-processions, concelebration of the liturgy by multiple priests, and many other topics of interest to especially clergy in the Church. The present volume presents an update to An Abridged Typicon first published in 1974 and reprinted in 1985 by St. Tikhon's Seminary Press. The revisions made in this edition have been limited mostly to clarifying the text as originally presented to conform with traditional English liturgical norms now used in North America, and with much of Mother Mary's and Kallistos Ware's traditional liturgical translations. The chapter listing the prokeimena, alleluia verses and communion hymns in the original edition has not been included here since these texts are now available in The Apostol published by St. Tikhon's and used here. Likewise, the table listing the readings from the Psalter and the Glossary have also been omitted.
