Teachings of the Orthodox Church
Fr. Boris Molchanoff
The contemplation of the "end times" presents the believer with two serious traps to be avoided: on the one hand, the tendency to dismiss all such contemplation as "idle speculation" concerning which little or nothing can be known; on the other, the temptation to seek to know or claim to know far more than is allowed to man, to know that which is known only by the Father. Fr. Boris' treatise steers a good course between these, and guides the reader to a sober contemplation of the dreadful reality which must indeed be faced even in our times, whether they are truly the "last days" or not.

Compiled from a multitude of sources and translated from the Russian, this slender volume presents the core of traditional Orthodox perception of the end times and the general apostasy which is to be expected -- and which, indeed, it seems we are experiencing. Much food for thought, shying away from any vain attempt to know the "times and seasons" which can be known only to God.
Item# 2449. (DC: R) Saddle-stitched. $3.00.
A compilation of the traditions of the Church concerning the end-times, supplemented by the posthumous prophecies of Nilus the Myrrh-streamer of Mt. Athos. Lucidly translated from the original Russian text, as prepared by Fr. Panteleimon, published at Holy Trinity Monastery in 1946.

Translated and with an introduction by Fr. Seraphim of Platina of blessed memory, this detailed commentary on the Book of Revelation (more accurately, the Apocalypse) by one of the spiritual giants of our age is perhaps the only reliable guide readily available in English to an Orthodox understanding of its complexities. In reading both the commentary and the book, it is wise to remember that it required seven centuries for the Church to reach oneness of mind that this book was indeed to be regarded as part of Holy Scripture.
But we do have on record today that Diveeyvo will be the only place on earth where Antichrist won't touch. St. Seraphim and others will resurrect there, and this is known as the Diveeyvo Mystery. There is a report of this in St. Seraphim of Sarov's life written by Helen Kontzevitch.
