Important Announcement - Please Read

A New Orthodox Marketplace Website is Coming!

The Orthodox Marketplace online web store and the Department of Religious Education's catalog store are in the process of merging operations.

While we are working out the details of this transition, the Orthodox Marketplace website will suspend sales functionality of the site. Customers will be able to browse the catalog, log in and check on the status of outstanding orders and order history (including downloads).

However, the cart and checkout features will be disabled.

If you wish to purchase items in the interim, a subset of our product catalog is still available from our Amazon Storefront.

You may also wish to purchase items from the Department of Religious Education Resource Guide, available below. The DRE can be reached via their toll-free number: 1-800-566-1088.

We expect the new Orthodox Marketplace and Resource Center website to launch in 2016.

Highlights from 67 Homilies by Saint John Chrysostom on the Book of Genesis

With his golden-mouthed homilies, his thoroughness in sifting through even the smallest bits of information, and his all-embracing love of God and man, St. John Chrysostom makes the Book of Genesis the archeology of the human spirit.

Developing the theme of THEN and NOW, the homilies are followed by relevant Christian commentaries. Included are Church Fathers from late antiquity: Saints Athanasius, Gregory of Nyssa, Gregory of Nazianzus, Basil the Great, Ephraim the Syrian, later Fathers such as Saints John of Damascus, Gregory Palamas and others. Drawn from more modern times, we read excerpts from the writings of Saints Nikolai Velimirovich, Nectarios of Pentapolis and John of Shanghai. Orthodox hierarchs are quoted, including His All Holiness Bartholomew, Patriarch of Constantinople, Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) of Diocleia and many others. Further, we read from the works of Archpriest Georges Florovsky, Protopresbyters Alexander Schmemann and Thomas Hopko, as well as prominent professors and theologians. Historian Eusebius of Caesaria and a leading scientist, Andrew Parker, round out the spectrum of Christian commentators. Together, these God-loving men show us the wonderful blessings and inheritance we enjoy in our life in Christ in the present age.

An Introduction, two Epilogues, Appendices and a Postscript 2011 are added to provide means for lively discussions and further study.
