This free online library collection includes several Orthodox books (Kindle). The heart of the collection is its works of prayerful, practical, Orthodox, Christian, mystical theology.
Who can tell of the glory of God?
This site is a showcase of creative works and writing by Christos Jonathan Seth Hayward that have been collected for a couple of decades. The sections of the site About (includes What's New?), Et Cetera, and an online library featuring Orthodox Books and More.
Orthodox Books and More: This collection includes Eastern Orthodox Christian theology, and literature. It is by far the largest section of this website, and possibly the most interesting.
The collection includes smaller sections of Orthodox theology, articles, assorted creations, journals, miscellaneous nonfiction, novels, Orthodox humor, satire, short stories, Socratic dialogue, and technology. If you're looking for a place to explore, why not begin with one of these links?
As over a decade has gone by, Orthodox Books and More has grown to be much more than one section of the website among others. It has several sections of its own, and it has become the crowning jewel of the site, with a great many of its author's favorite works.
The ground floor
I would like to begin and end with two C.S. Lewis quotes that fairly bracket the Biblical and Orthodox views on wealth. The plain sense of some painful passages in the Gospel and New Testament is an extraordinarily powerful door to important spiritual meadows. The first quote is about the the Sermon on the Mount, but applies to some other passages. Lewis said, "As to 'caring for' the Sermon on the Mount, if 'caring for' here means 'liking' or enjoying, I suppose no one 'cares for' it. Who can like being knocked flat on his face by a sledge-hammer?"
A look at all the New Testament teaching on wealth, in its plain sense, clears things up. The Parable of the Dishonest Steward takes quite a mercenary view of wealth. It is to be squandered in the process of getting onto more important things.
