Hi, I have discussed with Father Chris the need for the sharing of what I have discovered about Orthodox books! There are more than I can get read!! I also am the manager of the Cathedral bookstore in Birmingham. I have spent hours looking for certain books only to discover they are out of print and as such they are VERY expensive on Amazon, etc. I hope that I can post the information that I have discovered so that others do not spend a lot of time only to discover what I found. Anyone in the deacon program can attest that this session's book list has one book "Elements of Faith" that sold for $25-29 at the bookstore. Today it is out of print and IF you can find one they are $130-295 on the after market. My thought on this would be that somewhere there is a copy that be "loaned/purchased" for a reasonable price so that the study can be accomplished by the program candidate. I also would like to have suggestions for additional books for our bookstore that others have found interesting and discovered truths about Orthodoxy.
