Third edition of Fr. Steven Kostoff’s Divine Liturgy book now available online

Third edition of Fr Steven Kostoffs Divine Liturgy book now available onlineCINCINNATI, OH [MW Diocese Communications] — The third edition of The Divine Liturgy of the Orthodox Church: Meaning, Preparation and Practice, written by Archpriest Steven Kostoff, Rector of Christ the Savior-Holy Spirit Church, Cincinnati, OH and a regular contributor to the Orthodox Church in America website, is now available for purchase online.

In this slim but richly insightful guide to the pinnacle of Orthodox Christian worship, Father Steven expresses the renewal of liturgical theology set forth by the late Protopresbyter Alexander Schmemann, who defined it as “the elucidation of the meaning of worship.”  Uniting Scripture, theology and doxology with a practical discussion of the many facets of our liturgical actions, Father Steven helps the reader understand and enter into the heart of worship as “the revelation and expression of our Orthodox Faith.”  Seekers, catechumens and Orthodox Christian faithful alike will be blessed by this trustworthy and inspiring guide to the Divine Liturgy and the Life in Christ.

This Third Edition also features a new Epilogue by the author, “Great Vespers and Christian Martyria,” and a new article titled “Eucharistic Beings.”
