Does any such book exist in English?  If not, what other major writings would you refer me to for understanding the theology of this communion?

I've been told our catechism is the Nicene Creed.   Smiley

I don't know of any catechism like the one you are looking for.

There isn't much Pan-Oriental anything.


I take it you mean something "modern." For an Armenian one used in the Ottoman Empire:
Letters from Broosa, Asia Minor ...: with an essay on the prospects of the ... By Mrs. Eliza C (Abbott) Schneider

An older one is contained in the Agathangelos Life of St. Gregory. It has also been translated seperately as
The teaching of Saint Gregory: an early Armenian catechism By Agatʻangeghos, Robert W. Thomson

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
