The book on Serbia’s Christian Heritage in Kosovo and Metohija

The book on Serbia’s Christian Heritage in Kosovo and Metohija, its heartland in medieval times and through Ottoman domination, in recent months introduced to a wide reading public the oldest and richest treasury of Serbian medieval history and culture. Many university libraries were very pleased to have a copy of this high-quality publication, outlining the spiritual and artistic heritage of the Serbian Orthodox Church. It has been added to reference collections and now many students and faculty will make use of the ready access to it.

Joana Knezevic (California Institute of the Arts) presented the book The Christian Heritage of Kosovo and Metohija to the California Institute of the Arts Library. The gift was received by Bret Purpus, Associate Librarian. The monograph has been added to the library collection and is available for use by students and faculty.

Valérie Pécresse, a candidate for president of the Paris region, on December 6 attended the service in the Serbian Orthodox Church of Saint Sava in Paris, where she received a book The Christian Heritage of Kosovo and Metohija. She said: "We have to find a way to protect the very Serbian Orthodox heritage. We have an obligation to help the affected communities. It should be a universal role of France in the world."

Marko Macura (San Jose State University) donated the book The Christian Heritage of Kosovo and Metohija to the San Jose Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library. The gift was received by Rebecca Kohn, Associate Librarian (special collections).

Through these efforts, The Christian Heritage of Kosovo and Metohija established itself as the definitive record of the history of Kosovo and Metohija and is appreciated by many scholars.

Emmanuel

The Only Begotten and Firstborn among Many Brethren

by Bishop Athanasius Yevtich

In Emmanuel, the second anthology of Bishop Athanasius' articles to appear in English, His Grace explores themes of Orthodox Christology, Soteriology, Ecclesiology, and Gnoseology. How can we know Who God is? How can we know who we are, as human persons created in His image and likeness? How can we become one with Him? Bishop Athanasius examines these and other foundational questions in depth in this volume, drawing from a wealth of Scriptural and patristic sources. In discussing diverse theological subjects, he always returns to his overarching theme: the communion that man can have with God through Jesus Christ the God-man, within Christ's Church and above all in the Holy Eucharist. His exquisite and unique way of engaging the reader in mutual dialogue, with the living Eucharistic experience permeating his every thought, instills in the reader a burning desire for that communion.
