  • The Beauty of the Eucharist

    Dennis J. Billy
    £12.95
    The early Christians understood the importance of the Eucharist as an essential element in the Christian life.

  • Orthodoxy

    Paul Evdokimov
    £19.95
    The appearance in 1965 of Orthodoxy, a masterpiece of synthesis, was a landmark in religious publishing and earned for its author a doctorate of theology from the Institut Saint-Serge in Paris. Paul Evdokimov here circumvents all scholastic theology on the one hand, and the traditional approach of the ‘Dogmatic’ theologians on the other, to develop an original synthesis of Orthodox theological thinking. Although he constantly quotes the Fathers, he does so creatively, so as not simply to repeat them, but to incarnate their spirit in our own time and for our future.
