Online stores for Orthodox resources?
« on: June 19, 2015, 08:40:21 PM »
Hello all,

As the thread title implies, I am looking for online sources for Orthodox books and religious articles.  Can anyone throw me some bones?

Thanks,

Rob

You mean like purchasing books? Or free books?

Here's a start, St. Vladimir's Seminary Press
Not everything I type or have typed in the past is reflective of the teaching of the Orthodox Church, or may not reflect my contemporary views on a subject. (5/30/2015)

I am scaling back posting because the crack in my computer screen makes it harder and harder to type.

Purchasing books.  I'm finally taking the plunge towards conversion, have found a great priest and parish, and need to add some solid literature and prayer resources.

Thank you for that link!

Ancient Faith Publishing

Regina Orthodox Press

Fr. John Whiteford's Blog

Mystagogy

Also, http://oca.org/orthodoxy has a Fr. Thomas Hopko's book online, prayers and recommended readings.

Hope that's a good start.

I'm fortunate to have an excellent Orthodox bookstore to browse through, but on the odd occasion I've ordered from these places:

http://www.liturgica.com/cart/search.jsp#books

http://www.sainthermanmonastery.com/

amazon.com

http://newromepress.com/book-store/

Not just Orthodox, but an unusual selection:

Monasteries also tend to sell books as well.

Everything else listed is excellent.

I've also had good experiences with these places:

Antiochian Village bookstore - soon merging with the Archdiocesan bookstore

Archangels Books - Any icons I have that weren't given to me were bought from here

May I also send up a recommendation of

'Ask that 'great Priest' what you should be reading rather than going on 'documentation overload' and buying things that are not yet needed'.

Thank you for the links everyone.  I used to purchase from a site called Light & Life, I think, but can't seem to find it now.

The links you all provided should get me on my way.

Thanks again!

Excellent advice. Learning to walk before trying to run, and all that.  ;)
Am I posting? Or is it Schroedinger's Cat?

I'll take your suggestion into consideration.
