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 later this summer.

This book provides highlights of the entire Old Testament – from Genesis to Maccabees – to familiarize the reader with its fascinating stories, prophets, wisdom, and history. It is done chronologically, by means of a dialog between the Old and the New Testament for easy daily reading. Lucent commentaries by Holy Fathers are added to show the meaning for modern readers. The light of Christ, the Messiah, shines through much of the book.

Both the hard-back and soft-cover versions comprise 400 pages and are fully illustrated. The former is also provided with a ribbon marker. There is a detailed Table of Contents indicating Old Testament passages, and thematically matched New Testament quotations, as well as patristic commentators. As in previous volumes, various indexes are provided: an Index of Holy Fathers; and in an Appendix: a Table of Psalms; Some Liturgical uses of the Old Testament for Orthodox; a list of Biblical Odes and Chronology of Selected Kings and Events; an Index of New Testament passages; and a Subjects Index of Commentaries by Holy Fathers.
