A JOURNAL OF ORTHODOX FAITH AND CULTURE
"I feel as if I am living on a huge desert island. I am hungry to learn from traditional pious Orthodox Christians in countries where Orthodoxy is a part of their heritage – how they pray, how they raise their families, how they face ethical problems, how their thinking differs from mine, and how they live out Orthodoxy in their own homes and native countries. I cannot go on pilgrimage because I have small children, but my soul is hungry for contact. I've read dozens of books on Orthodox spirituality and history, but I'm looking for something more personal and contemporary – I want to KNOW Orthodox people around the world..."
This letter from a new American Orthodox convert from Wisconsin to Richard Betts and Mother Nectaria McLees, who, for a decade, had been living in and visiting countries with a heritage of traditional Orthodoxy was the beginning of a series of events that led to the birth of Road To Emmaus; a unique Orthodox Journal.
More about Road To Emmaus
Christ the Saviour Brotherhood Publishing was founded in 1995 to produce quality Orthodox Christian literature for children and adults, in support of a vibrant, traditional Orthodox way of life. Our publications show our commitment to presenting the truth and beauty of the Church.
Seeing the need for beautiful and engaging Orthodox books for children, we began with a simple prayer book, Bless O Lord, which is now in its second printing, having sold well over 6,000 copies.
Upon its publication in 1997, An Unbroken Circle: Linking Ancient African Christianity to the African-American Experience, broke new ground in Orthodox writing. Many people have found this book to be an invaluable resource, both for personal growth and for Orthodox outreach.
Our latest title, Thou Hast Proved Me, O God and Knowest: The Life of Hieromonk Vasily, translated from the original Russian edition, chronicles the life and martyric death in 1993 of a young monk at Optina monastery. Like many contemporary Americans, Fr. Vasily had to find his way to the Church from a secular upbringing, and his journey is inspiring and instructive.
These books, as well as the seven additional ones we offer, are valuable additions to your family library.
