"Let books be your dining table, / And you shall be full of delights. / Let them be your
And you shall sleep restful nights" (St. Ephraim the Syrian).

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

We are turning our attention now to the fall issue, having just put to bed the spring issue (vol. 52, nos. 1-2) of Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies, which--alone of all comparable journals in North America--manages to be published regularly and consistently every year on a twice-yearly schedule that incorporates the best scholarship and pastoral reflection from Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Eastern Catholic, Roman Catholic, Protestant, and other scholars from around the world. There is still time to subscribe in order to feast on the riches in this issue. There is, moreover, ample time to encourage your local library (especially academic library) to consider subscribing. And there is still time to take out a gift subscription for your friends, pastor, and others.

The spring issue will contain, inter alia, articles and essays by:
  • Richard Rymarz on Ukrainian Catholics at World Youth Day
  • Andriy Chirovsky on the Ecclesial Maturation of the Church of Kyiv
  • Michael Plekon on Eastern Elements in Kierkegaard's Eighteen Upbuilding Discourses
  • Nicholas Denysenko on Baptismal Themes in the Byzantine Rite of Water Blessing on Theophany
  • Daniel Galadza on Paul's Notion of λογικὴν λατρείαν
  • Vincenzo Poggi on the Vita of Cyril Korolevsky/J.-F. Charon and the East

In addition, of course, we have nearly thirty reviews of many new books, including:
  • Another dozen or so brief reviews are included, most of books already discussed on here.
Really, given this cornucopia, do you have any excuse for not subscribing--today?
