How can you help the Church breathe with both lungs, East and West? How can you enhance your spiritual journey using the traditions of the Eastern Christian Churches? How can you follow the teachings of Saint Peter in his second universal epistle when he says “become partakers of the Divine Nature” (2 Peter 1:3-4)? Subscribe to Theosis, a new monthly printed magazine and electronic eZine available from Eastern Christian Publications.
Each issue of Theosis will be over 100 pages of several short essays for spiritual reflection on topics such as Prayer, Eucharist, Sacraments, Scripture, Holy Icons, Sacramental Living, Spirituality, and a Feast of the Month. Contributors will be authors and theologians from a wide variety of Orthodox and Catholic Churches including Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) and Archimandrite Robert Taft, SJ. A photo essay of an Eastern church somewhere in the world will also be featured. It will also include the Calendar of Saints for the month with daily prayers, and a short biography of each saint according to the Byzantine calendar.
Printed in full color with plenty of icons and photographs, Theosis will be printed in a pocket size edition so you can carry it with you everywhere, and read just a few pages each day. The eZine edition will be distributed by email both as an interactive PDF and as an ePub format.
The annual print subscription is only $60.00 per year, or $5.00 per month including postage. The eZine subscription is only $29.95 per year, or about $2.50 per month.
