Sacred Catechism of the Orthodox Church

   
By Demetrios N. Vernardakis
Translated from the original Greek by Claude Delaval Cobham
Edited and augmented by Constantine Cavarnos

“Cobham’s translation of this Catechism of the Greek Orthodox Church will be welcome to many English-language readers. Being approved by the Patriarch and Synod of Constantinople, it may be regarded as an authoritative statement of the teaching of the Eastern Orthodox Church at the present day. God is spoken of as the infinite Creator and Upholder of all things. Man is spoken of as having Divine qualities, but in a lower measure and degree. Christ’s work is described as mainly to save man.”
—“Preface By Beresford Potter”
