Summer Reading from The Word

image The Word is on their annual July and August hiatus, but while we eagerly await the September issue we can still be fed by this beloved ministry of our Archdiocese, founded in Arabic in 1905 by St. Raphael of Brooklyn and in 1957 made an English language publication by Metropolitan Antony Bashir. At The Best of The Word, you'll find thought-provoking articles that share the blessed work being done in the Antiochian Archdiocese, and the wisdom of her workers. So whether you missed reading an issue (maybe even a few?) in print, or want to discover The Word for the first time, enjoy The Best of The Word.

Some recommendations to get you started: Kevin Allen's Church Growth, Orthodox Style; Gregory Cook's Words We Live By: ORTHODOX and American Ideals In Foundational Texts; Fr. Thomas Gallaway's The Sacred Nature of Sex; Harvey H.H. Homsey's Stewardship: Why My Family Tithes; and Fr. Joseph Purpura's Are We Doing Enough For Our Teens?
