Orthodox House of Worship: Informative and Interpretive Homilies on Liturgical Themes; This book is dedicated to the founders of the holy Orthodox churches, those who attend them regularly, and those who love the beauty of God’s house.

   
Augoustinos N. Kantiotes, Bishop of Florina, Greece
Translation and Foreword by Asterios Gerostergios

“This volume, Orthodox House of Worship[...]is addressed not only to the educated clergy and laity but also to all who are interested in the Orthodox Church. For those who want to know more about Orthodoxy, these homilies are not scholarly, liturgical treatises, rather they are designed to inform and instruct the reader in the basic elements of Orthodox worship. They are written and styled simply yet very vividly for all to understand and find spiritual pleasure in.”

    Second Edition, Reprinted with additions By Constantine Cavarnos Volume 3 of [link BKC001S]Modern Orthodox Saints[/link] “St. Nicodemos the Hagiorite was born in 1749 in Naxos, one of the Aegean islands. He received his elementary education there. His teacher was Archimandrite Chrysanthos Aitolos, (d. 1785), brother of St. Cosmas. A distinguished teacher, Chrysanthos taught for a time at the Patriarchal school at Constantinople before he became Director of the school in Naxos. He shared Cosmas’ sentiments and convictions; and thus the powerful message and example of the saint of Aitolia began to influence Nicodemos at a very early age, when Cosmas was traveling about as a missionary.” —“Introductory” CONTENTS PREFACE INTRODUCTORY THE LIFE OF SAINT NICODEMOS    By Gerasimos Micragiannanitis, of Mount Athos WORKS OF THE SAINT WRITINGS OF THE SAINT SELECTED PASSAGES FROM THE THE WORKS OF ST.
