The Law of God: For Study at Home and School

   
First English Edition

Compiled by Archpriest Seraphim Slobodskoy

“Our desire in publishing the present edition is to nurture souls in a true Orthodox Christian spirit. The material is presented in such a way as to be edifying and to give children and adults an intellectual foundation of support for their faith. While living in an environment which undermines the authority of the Church, The Law of God will supply the reader with support and defence for his beliefs, uncompromised by liberal trends.”
