The Holy Orthodox Church, written by the great teacher of the faith, Apostolos Makrakis (1830-1905), originally appeared as a series of articles in the periodical Logos, published in Athens, Greece, in 1880. Makrakis was a pious intellectual, a remarkable theologian and philosopher, and a prolific writer whose deep-rooted faith was poured out through powerful and uncompromising sermons and works which stirred the very soul of the young modern Greek nation.

The Holy Orthodox Church presents the divine faith and doctrines embraced and confessed from the very beginning by the Church of Christ. The foremost purpose of these doctrinal truths, rightly believed and rightly confessed, is the eternal salvation of pious believers in Jesus Christ.

After prayerful study of The Holy Orthodox Church, the reader will be led to divine and truthful understanding of three paramount theological dogmas, vital for his eternal salvation in Christ:

1. The true essence and nature of the Holy Trinity;
2. The establishing, essence, and nature of the Church of Christ;
3. The eternal moral consequences of faith in the true Church and true theology, or of faith in the false religions and false theology.

These teachings and warnings and hope for the future, of our Lord, are addressed to those who thirst after truth and righteousness.

About the Author

Dr. Apostolos Makrakis (1831-1905) was a charasmatic Greek lay theologian, preacher, ethicist, philosopher and writer who was a leader of the "awakening movement" in post-revolutionary Greece, and arguably one of the most important religious personalities of the 19th century. He was an extremely prolific writer whose works were translated widely outside of Greece. He founded the School of the Logos in Athens in September 1876 and was the Professor of philosophy and the philosophical sciences at the school. Makrakis was a patriotic visionary whose vigorous religious movement became a popular phenomenon that shook the religious and national establishment of his time. While his Christian message found strong support among the masses, his ideas were not well received by the religious establishment and even today still remains a polarizing figure within Eastern Orthodoxy.
