To Our Customers,
Scripture tells us often of the changelessness of God
(Hebrews 13:8: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and
forever) – a truth which is a strong anchor to the faithful who live in
a world that changes far more than many of us would choose. Light
and Life Publishing has experienced many changes lately, but our
mission remains:
To increase the personal knowledge of Jesus Christ and His Church
through the written word, to serve our customers efficiently, and to
bring ultimate glory to the life-giving Trinity: Father, Son and Holy
Spirit.
Light and Life has reduced its inventory significantly, keeping only
the top 400 best selling items. We remain the largest Orthodox
supplier and are committed to presenting you with items that will
strengthen our Orthodox Churches as well as the personal lives of the
parishioners.
Please visit our website’s homepage at www.light-n-life.com to see
some of the exciting new offerings we have added. We now offer
retreats, lectures or seminars focusing on one of our publications.
Tools for Theosis ~ Becoming God-like in Christ, by Anthony M.
Coniaris, is the first topic in our series. A new topic will be created
each year. Light and Life provides the presenter who will travel to
your location to deliver the message and preside as your retreat
master. Please contact us if your church is interested in a Light and
Life retreat, Sunday School training, or other educational
opportunity.
May our changeless and faithful Lord fill your hearts with His
presence, truth and love as we embark on a new year of servanthood
to Him.

✝ Tools for Theosis
Becoming God-like in Christ
by Anthony M. Coniaris
reviewed by Dan Christopulos
After 48 years of published works Fr. Anthony Coniaris’
greatest gift remains his ability to take seemingly difficult Orthodox Christian topics and make them understandable for the average lay person while not insulting
the intelligence of the learned theologian. In his last
book, The Uniqueness of Eastern Christianity... Father
Coniaris descended deeper into what distinguishes
Orthodoxy from other Christian faith communions.
Similarly, in this present offering, he doesn’t just define
Item # TOOL125
the important Orthodox concept of Theosis, but he
$19.95
delves into the daily practices which assist us on our
journey toward becoming God-like—joining with God, not in His essence, but in His
energies.
Typical of a Coniaris offering, the book is filled with Biblical quotes, contemplations
from the Holy Fathers, as well as modern Orthodox theologians, and the existential
experiences of living our Orthodox Christian faith. As he correctly presents, Theosis is
the potential to which all human beings are called. In the words he quotes from JeanClaude Larget: “Man was created to be united with God. The faculty of desire was
placed in his nature so that he could desire God, yearn for Him and be raised and united to Him.” St. Basil the Great adds: “Man is a creature who has received the command
to become god.” And, the notion is succinctly captured in Peter’s epistle where he
writes, “…become partakers of divine nature.” (2 Peter 4:1)
But even more important than helping us understand Theosis, are the instructions on
how to use the great treasure-chest of tools that our Lord has given us to help us on our
journey. Fr. Anthony takes us step by step, reminiscent of St. John of the Ladder, on
how the Sacraments, Holy Writings, Prayer, Repentance, Liturgy and Liturgical
Practices, Icons, Spiritual ascesis (exercise), and the Resurrection can help us move
from the image of God to the likeness of God.
He reminds us that Theosis is both a grace and a task. The potential is given to us by
God’s grace and we have to freely choose to respond in a synergistic manner with God.
It is not a 50/50 synergy, but without our response to God’s grace, our potential of
God-likeness remains unrealized.
As Fr. Coniaris nears the end of his eighth decade in the Church militant he willingly
shares the tools that he has employed to draw nearer to God and the realization of his
own potential in becoming God-like. The book is a must read for any serious
Orthodox Christian in the daily struggle of moving from image to likeness.

& Why We Love Them
We asked our staff to pick their favorite books
from our Light & Life collection and tell us what makes them so special.
Here’s what they said...
We Cook, We Pray, We
Learn is a wonderful book in many ways,
but especially because it draws us back to the kitchen, the
heart of the home with its warmth, aromatic smells and the coming
together with loved ones. These kitchen activities are linked to the rhythm
and life of the church, and to our spiritual family. In our frantically busy lives this
small colorful booklet offers recipes family’s can make all together such as, Prosforo
Bread, which can then be brought to church to be used in the Divine Liturgy. It
also discusses the Slavic Easter Basket custom and describes the family activities involving their baskets and the celebration of the Feast of the
Resurrection. It is a heartwarming book that you will devour
and want to share!
~ Patty C.
This book is filled with beautiful vignettes for those
who have lost loved ones. In his book, Christ’s Comfort for
Those Who Sorrow, Anthony M. Coniaris shares messages of hope,
reminding us that we do not merely vanish from this life but rather are
journeying to a new destination. Words of tenderness are sprinkled throughout short stories of people experiencing painful emotions such as sadness, anger
and despair as in the chapters, “Life Is a Round Trip Ticket”, “I’m Only Passing
Through,” and “When Our Favorite Flowers are Plucked.” Keep this book
handy as it can be returned to daily to deal with one of life’s most difficult challenges.

In God’s Path to Sanity, each chapter
explores a different area of personal struggle such as
vanity or impatience, that can prevent us from living a fuller
life. I especially enjoyed the chapter on patience, and how practicing
patience leads to personal integrity. The author asks, “To what degree do
you think you have integrity, the ability to remain true to the person God has
enabled you to become?” Probing questions like this provide us with an
opportunity to step back and examine our behavior and upon reflection,
realize the spiritual truth that communion with God can improve
our life in the most important and eternal ways.

Written by a non-Christian, it
was entitled, “When Bad Things
Happen to Good People.” The
answer it gives is that God
cannot do anything about
suffering. This is definitely not
the answer God in Christ has
given to this all-important
question. This is the main
purpose of this book: How does
Christ look upon those who
suffer? Is He compassionate? Is He
able to help? How? Chapters
include: Living Above the
Circumstances of Life; What to
do With Our Weaknesses; When
Life Collapses; An Inhabited
Darkness; etc. 6” x 9”. 88 pages.

by Anthony M. Coniaris
One of the marvelous results of
the death and resurrection of
Jesus is expressed in the glorious
and triumphant Descent of Jesus
into Hades. This saving truth is
mentioned more than 200 times
in the joyous hymns of the
Pentecostarion and more than
150 times in the troparia sung
on Sundays and other feast days
of the year. It is a glorious truth
that is emphasized in Scripture,
the Church Fathers, hymnology,
in the processions of Holy
Saturday, and, most graphically of
all, in the magnificent icon of the
Descent of Jesus into Hades. This
book shows how Jesus continues
to descend into our personal hells
today to extricate us, reconcile
with God, fill us with the Holy
Spirit and unite us with God.

And, once again, please tell
Fr. Anthony how much his
books mean to me! I read
and re-read them. They are
always a source of comfort

raised in an environment
that portrayed Christ as
impersonal and judgmental.
Christ's love and compassion
were never part of my
religious education. Now I
am Antochian Orthodox and
I am learning so much about
Christ's love for us and,
again, I thank Fr. Anthony
for opening my
understanding to this. I also
know that Fr. Anthony lost
his wife many years ago. I
am a widow and I especially
listen to Fr. Anthony because
I know he "knows" my, and

Fathers of the Philokalia have
much to teach about
confronting and controlling

Captivated by the beauty of the

seeks to express God’s beauty
through liturgy, icons, vestments
etc., as it calls on us also to
respond by doing something
beautiful for God. In the words of
one theologian, “Where there is
beauty apparent, let us enjoy it.
Where there is beauty hidden, let

defaced, let us restore it. Where

Our relationship with God is

Jesus is personal as well as

well as transcendent. He is the
God of persons: The God of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Much has been written about
the communal, liturgical aspect
of Orthodoxy. Drawing upon
the rich resources of Sacred
Tradition this book shows how
faith is also personal; prayer is
personal; the sacraments are
personal; the creed is personal;
Sacred Tradition is personal;
spirituality is personal; the
Trinity is personal, etc. In fact,
if faith is not personal it is not

Sanity: Lessons
from Ancient
Holy Counselors
on How to Have
a Sound Mind
by Dee Pennock
This book brings
the reader
together with holy physicians of
the soul in ancient Christian
Traditions, offering superbly clear
examples of the patristic method
of diagnosing and healing many
disorders of the soul that are now
being widely treated with braincrippling drugs. The resounding
lesson here, from physicians of the
soul through the ages, is that we
cannot cure afflictions of the
immortal soul by drugging the
short-lived mortal brain. Drugs
can soothe, as anesthetics can
temporarily block pain, notes the
author. But the saintly witness
presented here is that only God
can heal the afflictions of the soul
that are causing such widespread
psychological distress throughout
the world today. The author, a
Stanford graduate and a veteran
editor and author, worked at
Harvard with Fr. Georges
Florovsky. Early reviewers have
dubbed this book a "must read"
for spiritual health and sanity.

essays edited by Thomas Doulis
Nine people of varied
backgrounds tell how they
slowly matured into the values,
customs, dogmas, and
traditions of the Orthodox
Church in a society that looks
upon religious faith with
feelings that range from mild
contempt to benign amusement.
The contributors come from
many traditions including
Jewish, Reformed and
Evangelical Christianity,
Episcopalianism, Roman
Catholicism etc. These are not
dry testimonies. They will
provide excitement as they
describe the mysterious and
manifold ways in which the
Holy Spirit - the Hound of
Heaven - operates in the lives of
people. Contributors include:
Bishop Kallistos Ware, among
others. 6” x 9”. 173 pages.

Divine Eros: A
Timeless
Perspective on
Homosexuality
by Joy E. Corey
Divine Eros…draws
on the latest
scientific evidence,
including genetics, endocrinology,
and psychology, to debunk many
key myths about homosexuality
and offers alternatives for healing.
What is fresh about this
perspective is its fidelity to the
unchanging wisdom of the
Church in a time of radical
cultural and religious iconoclasm.
Yet anyone who has knelt in the
trenches like Joy has with persons
suffering from same-sex erotic
attraction knows that the
compassion of the Lord and His
saving energies reach into the
depths of these very trenches in
order to fill them with His lifegiving waters.

This book brings
the reader together with holy
physicians of the soul in ancient

superbly clear examples of the
patristic method of diagnosing
and healing many disorders of
the soul that are now being
widely treated with braincrippling drugs. The resounding
lesson here, from physicians of
the soul through the ages, is
that we cannot cure afflictions
of the immortal soul by
drugging the short-lived mortal
brain. Drugs can soothe, as
anesthetics can temporarily

block pain, notes the author.
But the saintly witness
presented here is that only God
can heal the afflictions of the
soul that are causing such
widespread psychological
distress throughout the world
today. The author, a Stanford
graduate and a veteran editor
and author, worked at Harvard
with Fr. Georges Florovsky.
Early reviewers have dubbed

between prayer, fasting and
almsgiving? Discover five truths:
1) Fasting is not just intended for
monks and nuns; 2) Fasting is not
a matter of working our way to
heaven; 3) Fasting should not be
self-willed, but be obedient; 4)
Fasting is not a matter of gloom
but of joyfulness; and 5) Fasting is
not a rejection of God’s creation.

This exciting book shows how
we can give meaning and joy

One of the marvelous results of
the death and resurrection of Jesus
is expressed in the glorious and

Hades. This saving truth is
mentioned more than 200 times in
the joyous hymns of the
Pentecostarion and more than 150
times in the troparia sung on
Sundays and other feast days of
the year. It is a glorious truth that
is emphasized in Scripture, the
Church Fathers, hymnology, in the
processions of Holy Saturday, and,
most graphically of all, in the
magnificent icon of the Descent of
Jesus into Hades. This book shows
how Jesus continues to descend
into our personal hells today to
extricate us, reconcile with God,
fill us with the Holy Spirit and
unite us with God. 5" x 7 1/4".

manufactures and propagates
one’s own truth. Examines
objectively the moral relativism
of our age with the multitude of
clashing truths. Then draws
upon countless resources
beginning with the Scriptures,
the Church Fathers and several

by Benjamin D. Williams and

The two authors have
discovered in the Orthodox
liturgy a living continuity with
the worship of Judaism and the
Early Church. Written in a nontheological manner for the
average lay person, this book
offers inspired insights into the
Orthodox liturgy that will rivet
the attention of the reader. Early
Christians preserved a
continuity of worship from the
Old Covenant to the New,
employing elements from the
Jewish Temple liturgy, the
synagogue liturgy and the
rituals of the Jewish home.
Shows how divinely revealed
Old Testament worship is not
only continued but also fulfilled
in the Orthodox liturgy. A lineby-line explanation of the
liturgy is included. 5 1/2” x 8

considers the true

outward aspects of fasting and
the inward and unseen purpose?
What is the relationship between
prayer, fasting and almsgiving?
Discover five truths: 1) Fasting is
not just intended for monks and
nuns; 2) Fasting is not a matter
of working our way to heaven; 3)
Fasting should not be self-willed,
but be obedient; 4) Fasting is not
a matter of gloom but of
joyfulness; and 5) Fasting is not
a rejection of God’s creation.

Icons of Christ
What is an icon? An icon is a window to heaven—a visual representation of a divine reality.
When we reverence an icon, we are not honoring paint and wood. The Church teaches that the honor given passes over to the
prototype. Thus, when we reverence an icon of Christ, it is Christ whom we honor, not the icon itself.

drawing little attention to itself. Perfect for home altars, prayer tables,
bedside or anywhere you’d like a free standing icon. The design is
incredibly stable, using the icon’s own weight to resist tipping. The
Iconstand is not stained. Clear polyurethane highlights
the wood’s natural color and beauty.

Each year a new topic will be produced and available for churches to utilize!
