I apologize in advance if there is already another thread on this matter.

Does anyone know of any good books, in English, on Oriental Orthodoxy that are available on Amazon (or alternatively, if you know of another online place to order them).  Whenever I find out about a book on Oriental Orthodoxy (except for a rare few) they are either not in English (yet anyways), or not on Amazon (or some individual is selling it for an illogically high price) and I have no idea where I could get them from.

One of the outstanding living OO theologians is the Coptic Pope, Pope Shenouda III. All of his works that have been translated into English are available for download as PDF files from:

You can read them on line or print them to read elsewhere.

Yes. I second that! Pope Shenoudah's works are very readable and profound in simplicity and spiritual depth. Valuable reading for all Orthodox!

"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."
