Acquire Dogmatic Theology Textbook before Classes Begin

I will be teaching Dogmatic Theology this fall semester and I am very much looking forward to it. The class is rather fast-paced, and the students should have the main textbook, Orthodox Dogmatic Theology, by Protopresbyter Michael Pomazansky, in hand before the course begins. The book is available from all major Orthodox book stores, including Archangels Books, with whom the Pastoral School has a cooperative relationship:


The book is also available on line, but if possible, it would be ideal for the students to have this very important book in their personal library. On line versions can be found with a simple search. The other book that will need to be purchased is The Truth of our Faith Volume II – On the Christian Mysteries by Elder Clopa. That one comes later in the semester, but it is not a bad idea to pick it up now, when you are purchasing the Pomazansky book. Here is the link at Archangels Books:


Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns.
