Abouna Salim's book Captivated by Your Teachings
Chorbishop Seely Beggiani's Early Syriac Theology: With Special Reference to the Maronite Tradition

I believe these are very basic resources. Has Logos/Verbum considered the possible markets being opened but the exodus of Christians from the MIddle East ... you could be their go to source for religious books.

M.J., did you see this?

This is so fascinating. I'm sure many are curious, like me, and looking for a book or two to read.

Are there any solid English books on the Maronite liturgy or on liturgical theology from a Maronite perspective? I would be very interested in having such things in Verbum.

Thanks for the link - I had not seen it.

 A brief description of the liturgy is available at http://www.stgeorgesa.org/explanation_of_the_maronite_divi.htm and http://www.stmaron.org/1qurbono.html ... I'll look through my books later when I get back home.

Thank you very much. These should be good to give me a foundational understanding of the structure of the Qurbono. Beyond this, my ideal would be to find a sort of Schmemann-esque Maronite liturgical/sacramental theologian, a deep thinker who can give me a vantage point that is at once outside of the Latin/Western liturgical arguments/wars and in communion with the Pope. More than one such theologian would be good, too!

The "Jungmann" of the Byzantine side is Byzantine Slav Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, Its Origin and Evolution by Casimir Kucharek which I recommend very highly. A Melkite priest introduced me to this classic.

Thank you for the recommendation. It's now on my to-read list. If only it were in Verbum!
