Education and evangelistic outreach is of the utmost importance to the bishops, clergy and laity of the Antiochian Archdiocese. In support of their efforts, Discover Orthodox Christianity now provides a topical library of links and reflections presenting the faith to site visitors in an engaging and accessible format. We hope this will be a useful tool for teaching of the faith, for both newcomers and for people who are rediscovering Orthodoxy.

Visitors to Discover Orthodox Christianity will be able to read within nine subsections covering topics such as Our Sacraments, Who is God? and What is the Church? Authors include Fr. Thomas Hopko, Metropolitan Anthony Bloom, Fr. Patrick Reardon, Fr. Touma Bitar, Frederica Mathewes-Green, and many others. Links in each section point to supplementary books, podcasts, and other websites for the inquirer.

This apologetical content is in no way exhaustive, as more web teaching resources are emerging daily in Orthodox cyberspace. If you have any suggestions for us, or links or articles that have been helpful to you in your faith journey, email your ideas to

We encourage those maintaining Orthodox websites of their own to link to this section. Graphics are available on our webmaster resources page.
