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.

This pioneering volume endeavors to develop an Orthodox Christian model of stewardship by drawing on scriptural, patristic, historical, dogmatic, and liturgical foundations. Renowned contributing authors explore the links between wealth and poverty - from methods of handling money in the pre-Nicene Church to twentieth-century American patters of fundraising. Although it addresses moral and social themes related to money management, almsgiving, and acts of mercy, this volume also reminds us to measure stewardship in terms of self-giving, not merely contributions of wealth but also offering our very lives to Christ our Lord. Philanthropia, ultimately, is proven by cheerful giving, in a spirit of love, the source of which is in knowing the Almighty God.

The editor, Father Anthony Scott, has served as a parish priest, the chief development officer for St Vladimir's Seminary, an occasional contributor to Orthodox periodicals, and now as the president of Stewardship Advocates, an Orthodox planning and church development organization.
