“A very short time ago, we published the Greek edition of this book, which was designed to meet the needs of our Greek-reading faithful. It became quickly apparent that some of these very same readers felt that an English version of the book would be helpful to their children, many of whom are not proficient in Greek, and, as well, to some of their non-Orthodox friends interested in our Faith. We have thus decided to publish the present volume for this more general readership.”
