Losing My Religion
Walking With God
Mills reads the New Testament and shows how the God we read about in the Bible is present in our daily lives. Drawing from an array of sources, including his own experiences, Mills offers pearls of spiritual wisdom for growth in Christ. I highly recommend this book for everyone.

Called to Serve
Called to Serve is a contribution to the ongoing theological discussion of ordained and lay ministry, taking into special consideration the numerous discussions and debates which are currently at the forefront of the Church, namely, how both the clergy and laity can work together for the good of the entire Body of Christ. Among the authors included in this volume are Metropolitans Kallistos Ware of Diokleia and Maximos Aghiorgoussis of Pittsburgh, Fathers Alexander Schmemann, Nicholas Afanasiev, Kyprian Kern, Sergius Bulgakov, and Georges Florovsky, as well as the lay theologians, such as Nicholas Berdiaev, Anton Kartashev, and Elizabeth Behr-Sigel.
Prayer of St.
Every day Christians from across the world recite the Lord's Prayer, the only prayer that we have from Jesus Himself. Despite the fact that Christians are often divided over language, culture, ethnic backgrounds, theologies, customs, and traditions, we are all united under the one authority of God the Father through these very special and meaningful words. When praying the Our Father, we become a single chorus, offering our prayer and praise to God the Father, uniting ourselves in a common bond of love and solidarity.
Orthodox Pastoral Service is a collection of lecture notes from Kern's classes in pastoral ministry. In this book, Kern deals with important issues such as clericalism, the importance of the Eucharist for the life of the priest, and emphasis on the intellectual, spiritual, and personal preparation for the priesthood.
"Mills' fresh voice helps his readers focus on what is truly essential: listening to the still, small voice of God. Mills offers us short but deeply refreshing Biblical reflections grounded in our human and often mundane experiences but raised heavenward as we follow Christ in patience, humility, and joy."

"Many people today are risk-averse; living in a world fraught with dangers, they imagine it safer to remain in one place than get caught moving about. Others believe that by forestalling any sort of changes in life they can somehow avoid feeling any greater pain. Fr. William Mills' latest work, Come Follow Me, is an invitation to test the paradox of authentic human existence-that only by dying to self can one come to experience all the fullness of life. A delightful narrator, Fr. Mills inhabits the stories he tells in an honest and self-effacing way. His thorough knowledge of the Bible, which grows out of his deep love for Scripture, intersects with his stories in a way that clarifies the biblical narratives, while in turn providing understanding that brings light to our own life stories."

Luke that are read in the Orthodox Church from mid-September until
the feast of the Nativity of our Lord. The Gospel also contains many
familiar parables and teachings: the Good Samaritan, the Publican
and the Pharisee, the Rich Man and Lazarus, and Zachaeus.
Feasts of Faith: Reflections on the
Major Feast Days is a collection of pastoral reflections on the
major feast days that appear in the Eastern Orthodox liturgical
calendar. The feast days include beautiful liturgical hymnography,
but also prescribed Scripture readings for Matins, Vespers, and the
Divine Liturgy which function as a context for understanding the
importance of these festal celebrations.
