About the Magazine Serb World U.S.A.

Serb World U.S.A.
In the fall of 1984, the first issue of Serb World U.S.A.appeared in Tucson, Arizona, after the new company purchased the original Serb World. Today Serb World U.S.A.is a striking 64 pages of black-and-white design with one bright color used as accent. It is printed on fine paper and averages 3 illustrations per page. The majority of the photographs are rare—from private collections or archives. Every article is extensively researched. The contributors are from all walks of life and from every conceivable background.

.

Over 4,000 paid subscribers regularly receive Serb World U.S.A.which reaches over 20,000 readers in all 50 states and in Canada, Australia, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Yugoslavia. 

Serb World U.S.A.has been called "the best of its kind."  It is not a newsletter and not a newspaper.  Neither is it a scholarly journal. It can be casual and elegant, humorous and serious. The dozen articles in each issue are anywhere from 1 to 15 pages in length. It is a magazine for people who like to read. It is entertainment and good information. Several professionals in the publishing field agree. Meinhart Lagies of the Detroit Free Presssaid, "I'm far from being a Slav but I enjoy everything about your magazine... what strikes me the most, I suppose, is the professional way it is designed and edited. And I don't mean 'professional for a small magazine,' I mean professional, period."  A publisher for forty years, George H. Seferovich, has called Serb World U.S.A.a "...delightfully crafted magazine." American author Robert St. John believes, "Your magazine is (should be) of interest to non-Serbs. Very professional and very slick... "

Serb World U.S.A.is an independent business, a magazine published in English about Serbs and their place in the world—past, present, and future. It is cultural and historical. Some see it as "a link to present and future generations."  It is neither subsidized nor sponsored. The stories and articles are published solely for the enjoyment of the readers, and for twenty-two years, the magazine has relied only on subscription and advertising revenue.

Serb World U.S.A.covers a wide variety of subjects from folk customs and religious traditions to music, art, poetry, and history. There are also stories about people, communities, and churches. There are articles about the native lands of America's Serbs—Montenegro, Dalmatia, Hercegovina, Bosnia, Lika, Kordun, Banija, Zumberak, Slavonia, Srem, Banat, Backa, and Serbia. There are features about the Serbian connections to the famous train, the Orient Express; the ever-popular operetta, the Merry Widow; and the master of art nouveau, Alphonse Mucha. And that is just the beginning.

Serb World U.S.A.is also the story of Serbs in America, the immigrants and the emigres, and the contributions they and their descendants have made to the New World in art, music, science, the media, sports, business, literature, scholarship, industry, government, the military, and much, much more.

Melissa Bean

United States Congresswoman

Melissa Luburic Bean (born on January 22, 1962) is an American politician of Serbian descent who was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 2004. Bean graduated from Roosevelt University and is a Democrat, representing Illinois' 8th Congressional district in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago (map). She lives in Barrington with her husband and two children. She is president of a major consulting firm.

In 2002, Bean ran against 33-year 8th District Republican incumbent Phil Crane. She lost, but gained 43% of the vote—a stunning total since she received almost no funding from the national party. The 8th had long been considered the most Republican district in the Chicago area, and according to some in all of Illinois. Bean's performance was even more stunning since the 8th had reportedly been redrawn to protect Crane. Several former Republican primary opponents and Democratic general election opponents had their homes drawn into the neighboring 10th District.

Христос – Нова Пасха – Божанствена Литургија

Serbian Edition, author Bishop Athanasius Yevtich (издање на српском језику, аутор епископ Атанасије Јевтић)

Период двадесетог века представљао је врло комплексно раздобље везано за развој литургијско-богословске мисли у нашој помесној Цркви. Осећајући насушну еклисијалну и пастирску потребу да поменуту мисао надгради и истовремено је учини приступачнијом народу Божијем, епископ Атанасије Јевтић се одлучио да понуди тротомно дело под насловом: Христос – Нова Пасха – Божанствена Литургија. Иако се објављивање трећег тома тек очекује, сматрамо да богословској и читалачкој пажњи треба представити два тома који су већ изашли.

Сложени назив овог епохалног издања, које може бити препознато као „српска литургијска стромата двадесет и првог века“, аутор је начинио на основу одељка из Прве Посланице Коринћанима светог апостола Павла: Јер се Пасха наша Христос жртвова за нас (1Кор 5, 7). Дело се састоји из два тома и намењено је, према речима епископа Атанасија, „богобојажљивим и христочежњивим љубитељима Божанских Тајни, усрдним учесницима Свете Литургије и причесницима Богочовечанских Светиња“. Наиме, у њему су сабрани текстови о Светој и Божанственој Евхаристији од најранијих времена Цркве Христове (првог века) све до савременог доба, а сâм циљ јесте „раскривање литургијских, еклисиолошких, космичких и есхатолошких димензија Светајне Христа и Његове Цркве“. Највећи део сабраних литургијско-светоотачких текстова се по први пут појављује на српском језику, благодарећи преводилачком и прегалачком труду епископа Атанасија. Уз то, веома су драгоцени његови оригинални коментари. Треба истаћи да су оба тома штампана са тврдим корицама у штампарији Интерклима Графика у Врњачкој Бањи.
