The Orthodox Bookstore is a small family owned bookstore in Los Angeles, California (USA). My wife and I are Orthodox Christians, who have been involved in various youth ministries since 1991. Furthermore, I studied and graduated from an Orthodox Theological Seminary in 2001. My studies cultivated my love for the fathers, and by God’s grace has grown tremendously.
In addition to youth related services, we have been involved in setting up bookstores and libraries, and patristic book booths for festivals and conferences.
The Orthodox Bookstore was established with the goal of spreading and making available the Word of God, as well as the understanding of the Word, as received from the writings of the early church fathers and scholars.
The Orthodox Bookstore is a full-fledged bookstore with three facets of operation:
1. Online Bookstore specializing in the writings of the early church fathers
2. Distribution service to churches and schools
3. Children's Reading Program
Whether you are looking for a bible, a bible study aid, devotionals, primary or secondary texts, or research material, the Orthodox Bookstore can help. The online bookstore strives to collect biblical and patristic resources in order to make them readily available to everyone. The store consists of printed books, audio books, and software.
The Orthodox Bookstore will work with your organization, whether it be a church or school, in establishing and maintaining bookstores, libraries, and reading groups. In addition, the Orthodox Bookstore can help provide you with resources on a consignment basis for your function (e.g. festival, book fair, conference, convention, or meeting) with proceeds going directly to your organization.
The Orthodox Bookstore’s children’s reading program promotes Christian education for kids. Depending on the child’s age, a separate curriculum is available for each year, ages two through ten. This program is a monthly reading program (averaging 3-4 books per month) designed to encourage and promote not only reading, but enhances Christian behavior, morals, and builds a strong foundation towards Godly character. This program can be used as a supplement to a children’s catechetical program, such as Sunday School. Additionally, this reading program will help parents educate their children, as well as assist them in developing and building their own Christian based library at home. For more information about this program and a catalog, please inquire via e-mail.
The Orthodox Bookstore looks to serve your needs, so if we don’t have it, we’ll try to get it. Furthermore, the bookstore provides competitive pricing, and a portion of all proceeds is donated back towards the community, via churches, charities, and academic organizations.
