Now in its seventh English language printing, this is one of the finest introductions to the Orthodox Faith ever written. Prior to the Alaska purchase of 1867 the "Great Land" was part of the Russian Empire. This catechism was authored by the sainted Russian Bishop and missionary Innocent of Alaska who created the written Aleut language. The original edition was published in the Aleut (Native American) language in 1833. The book begins with the premise that we are not to live on earth like animals and then to disappear but rather to live with God and in God for eternity. It is seen as natural and good to seek for happiness and prosperity whilst understanding that these are only truly found in God. It explains how this may be.
