Study Guide for Metropolitan Tikhon’s Of What Life Do We Speak: Four Pillars For The Fulfillment Of The Apostolic Work Of the Church has been released and is now available free of charge in PDF format for downloading.

The Study Guide—prepared to enhance the use and study of the book—will prove to be especially helpful in adult class settings and in personal study and reflection.

Metropolitan Tikhon’s Of What Life Do We Speak? made its debut at the 19th All-American Council of the Orthodox Church in America, held in Saint Louis, MO in July 2018.  Since its release, it has become a popular resource in adult classes and study groups in many parishes and deaneries.  The Study Guide—written in response to the growing number of requests for supplementary materials in this regard—contains reflections, a wealth of focused questions and discussion starters, and numerous related resources.

Hopefully, the Study Guide will prove to be most helpful in furthering Metropolitan Tikhon’s vision for the growth of the Orthodox Church in America as outlined in Of What Life Do We Speak?.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
