For thirty five years The Law of God by Father Seraphim Slobodsky has been accessible only to Orthodox readers with a knowledge of Russian. After many years of preparation the first English edition of this valuable work is now available. The need for such a complete and diverse catechism in English has long been acutely felt by all those who instruct or seek instruction in the Orthodox Faith. The subject matter presented by the author is eternal; it covers all aspects of Orthodoxy including the Old and New Testaments.
This is the English edition of the classic Russian textbook designed for parents to teach their children "all the fundamental points of the Orthodox Christian faith and way of life." Because children are growing up quickly in a society that raises serious and agonizing questions the author does not teach in naive stories that remain stories only. It offers an overview of the whole of the Old and New Testaments as well as instruction on prayer, worship and what it means to live by the teaching of the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes. Lavishly bound and made to last. Well illustrated with black and white photographs and icons.
