Good book to read about the Orthodox Church in Jerusalem?
« on: March 26, 2013, 09:10:41 PM »
I'd really like to learn more about the Orthodox Church in Jerusalem. Does anyone have any good book recommendations?
I am no longer a "confused Roman Catholic" as I joined the Orthodox Church in April 2016.

For a book on the Orthodox Church of Jerusalem, particularly as a community, see: Witness in the Holy Land by Maria Khoury, distributed by Light and Life Publishing.


A new book has been published in Jerusalem entitled Witness in the Holy Land by Dr. Maria C. Khoury author of the popular Christina Goes to Church. Dr. Khoury has made efforts in the last decade to produce children's Orthodox literature that preserves and documents precious traditions, values and the rich symbolism of the Orthodox faith. This new book is the first book geared for adult readers, especially young adults that might have an interest in knowing more about the dwindling Christian community in the Holy Land and what life is like under military occupation...

The Spiritual Meadow is a famous book by the 6th century monk St John Moschus with stories about Christians, especially monks, in Palestine. However I have not read it.
