Below you will find an initial list of recommended books and online articles to supplement our upcoming course, The Orthodox Way of Life. I’m also attaching a brochure for the class, in case you haven’t received one already. I encourage you to invite others to attend the classes with you.
I especially recommend that you purchase the first two books, The Orthodox Study Bible and The Orthodox Church by Metropolitan Kallistos (Timothy Ware), a good basic introduction to Church history and the Orthodox Faith. Buying these books is recommended, but not necessary. I do plan to use the OSB in class. (At least bring a readable translation of the Bible with you, if you have one. If not, that’s ok.)
Yours in Christ,Symeon
