WARNING

NOT EVERYTHING THAT

CALLS ITSELF ORTHODOX IS

TRULY ORTHODOX


The above warning was given to me when I first met Orthodoxy in 1986. Today [2009] it is even more perilous, even more difficult to find the Royal Path. For one thing there is a far greater abundance of misinformation. And many materials are missing, and other materials are being rapidly rewritten. For another thing there are fewer than ever guides remaining on the Royal Path, especially who speak English. Hopefully this website will be a place where Newcomers to the Faith can keep at least one foot on solid ground, while they are "exploring."

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.
