Author: Slobodskoy, Fr. Seraphim
This is the English edition of the classic Russian textbook designed for parents to teach their children "all the fundamental points of the Orthodox Christian faith and way of life." Because children are growing up quickly in a society that raises serious and agonizing questions the author does not teach in naive stories that remain stories only. It offers an overview of the whole of the Old and New Testaments as well as instruction on prayer, worship and what it means to live by the teaching of the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes.ﾠ Well illustrated with black and white photographs and icons. The 2011 printing has a green cover and a notch binding for durablilty.

This book was recommended to me by my local priest and it is definitely a must on every christian's book shelf. It is equally great for the ones who are just starting to practice religion and for the people who have more experience but need to reassure themselves they are going in the right direction.

Very complete and easy to read. This book should have a place in every library. It is essential reading for adults seeking baptism into the Orthodox Church, although as a reference book, it can benefit all Orthodox Christians. It covers Scripture, Church history, modern prayer services, vocabulary, and much much more. Over the years, I have given away a few copies and plan to give away many more in the years to come.
