SYNOD OF BISHOPS : April 26, 2005

New Book from the Russian Orthodox Youth Committee of the Synod of Bishops

"The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life" (John 6:63). The daily reading of Holy Scripture, especially of the Gospel of the New Testament and the teachins of our Lord Jesus Christ give us renewed life, sates our spiritual thirst and gives us the needed direction for proper Christian living. The reading of spiritual works and the performance of spiritual labors possess the joyful and true promise of our Lord Jesus Christ: "He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life" (John 5:24).

This new publication of the Russian Orthodox Youth Committee, "The Gospels of Jesus Christ" is a collection of the words spoken by our Savior and recorded in the Gospel. This unique and beneficial book was prepared by the renowned church writer Vladimir Rusak. The reader will find especially beneficial the organization of these words of our Savior into various spiritual topics. We hope that the readers will find this anthology of Christ's words, with parallel Russian and English texts, helpful and convenient in the fast-paced conditions of contemporary life. The price of the book is $15.00 plus shipping.
