The Ark of Salvation: A Young Adult’s Guide to the Orthodox Church

   
The Fathers of Saint Edward Brotherhood, with Anna Holden, Marina Popova, Sofia Popova, Alex Gheorghiu, Ana-Maria Gheorghiu, Lavinia-Paula Rogojina

“There are many excellent books about the Orthodox Church for young children, but very few for teenagers and young adults. The Ark of Salvation is the work the fathers of Saint Edward Brotherhood, assisted by a group of young Orthodox Christians. The first part of the book is devoted to Orthodox faith and worship, and the second part covers the Christian life. The book contains questions often asked by young people together with our attempts to answer them. The Ark of Salvation is not the only book you will ever need to read about the Orthodox Church. It is not a survival manual for those living in the world. It is just a simple explanation of what we believe as Orthodox Christians together with advice on modern problems. Throughout the book we emphasize that only within the Orthodox Church can we find the healing we need for our souls and bodies.”
