When a believer reads the Bible, various questions arise: Why are there different versions of the Bible? What is the canon of the Bible? Does the Bible contradict modern science? Is the Bible credible as a historical source? Russian scholar and specialist in Bible Studies Andrey Desnitsky's gives answers to this and other questions in his book "Orthodox Church and the Bible: Forty Questions". This book opens the mystical world of the Bible to readers. Now this book will be translated into Chinese.
This book shall be translated and published before the end of April 2021. The entire project budget includes translation, typesetting, proofreading and printing, etc., and is about HK $ 40,000.
We look forward to your generosity and support for this publishing program. For those who donate more than HK $ 200, we will send you a copy of this book and a thank you letter. May our Lord bless our efforts!
The China Orthodox Press is announcing the start of this project, which is aimed at making the worship on main Orthodox feasts accessible in Chinese, both in parishes where it is used for worship and for home prayers of Chinese laymen who are unable to attend the temple in holidays.
Upon completion of the project we will publish online and print in hardcopies twelve notebooks (28-32 pages each) with Chinese text and liturgical instructions of Holidays worship. Chinese text will be based on translations of the Beijing Orthodox Mission of the 19th century, substantially edited and revised to the standard of the contemporary liturgical language.
The deadline for the layout of texts is July 2021, the publication of signal copies is October 2021.
The project budget is 12,000 US dollars (translation, editing, typesetting, layout and printing of signal copies). We ask you to support this project. In gratitude, we will be happy to give a full set of Chinese texts of the services of the Twelfth Holidays to everyone who supports us with a donation of $ 200 or more.
The Orthodox Ecclesiastical Mission in China translated for the needs of the Church some books of a faith doctrinal nature. Fulfilling needed, we are working on translating and publishing doctrinal books for Orthodox Christians in China.
Translation of the "Catechism" by Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeev) is our new project. This book is a short guide to the Orthodox faith, well structured easy to read. The first section of the book explained the basic doctrine of theology of the Orthodox Church: it is about faith, about God, about Jesus Christ, about the Holy Spirit, about the Church, about baptism and about the resurrection of the dead. In the second section on moral themes, it speaks of the Ten Commandments of the Old Testament, of the Beatitudes, of the love of God and of love for one's neighbor, of sin and repentance, questions of family ethics, the upbringing of children, and the place of women in the Church. In the third section we are talking about prayer and worship, the church and icons, the church calendar and church holidays, the sacraments and rituals.
The book can be used for pre-fossil as well as post-catechetical catechesis. The publication will be interesting to everyone who wants to systematize their knowledge of the Orthodox Church.
