Safe Reading List
St. John of Kronstadt Press (SKJP) had the well-deserved reputation for having the highest standard in book selections offered. The catalogue has for decades been THE "Safe Reading List" for true Orthodox English-speakers.
SJKP did not carry all the safe books that exist, but if there is book not sold by SJKP, it is good to find out why before reading it. Could be a simple reason, such as SJKP already has an overstock of a too similar book, or that Fr. Gregory hadn't reviewed it yet. But it could be that Fr. Gregory found the book to have "land mines" in it.
This was the final printed catalogue. After 2007 the catalogue was only online. There were only minor updates to the online catalogue, which today is nothing like it once was. Do not use the catalogue to order books. The website has the books that are actually for sale. https://sjkp.org
The catalogue makes for good reading all by itself. Fr. Gregory has written a short description for each of the books.
