The Ideal Gift for Parents of Soon-to-be-baptized Infants!

Filled with colorful, contemporary art illustrating the Greek Orthodox Baptism Ceremony, Child of Light: The Greek Orthodox Baptism Book provides an easy-to-understand explanation of the Holy Sacrament of the "Entrance into Light" and its rich symbolism.

This appealing new book features the colorful, highly-original art of internationally-recognized artist Pat Kaufman with accompanying text by Jamie Jameson explaining the Greek Orthodox Baptism Ceremony and its rich symbolism based on conversations with Orthodox priests throughout the United States. Created to become a family heirloom, it includes pages for photographs, notes and mementos.

Praise from Greek Orthodox priests:

“Child of Light is a necessary resource for parents and Godparents…the book’s concise text and colorful illustration present the initiatory rites of membership in the Holy Orthodox Church in a way that is theologically accurate, aesthetically pleasing, and spiritually uplifting.”

Fr. Michael H. Kontos, Jr,. Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Columbus, OH

"Congratulations…and thanks for providing a book that is so precious and needed...with step by step information, theological reflections, and wonderful pictures.”

Fr. Michael Varvarelis, Holy Trinity Cathedral, Charlotte, NC

“I am looking forward to ordering Child of Light…there has been nothing like it until now…I would like to present this enlightening book to parents when I meet with them to discuss their child’s baptism.”

Fr. Michael Eaccarino, St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Tarpon Springs, FL.”

Child of Light

I was attending a Baptism of the twin boys I care for and their cousin. Doing research on what kind of gift to bring your website came up in my search. I was so impressed by your line of products I had so many things to pick from. I chose the Child of Light because it helped me to understand the Greek Orthodox Baptism and I thought as these children get older I can read it to them and explain the celebration. Both sets of parents, grand parents and even the Priest were so impressed by this book. The parents (who were also godparents) along with Father Anthony all wrote their information and signed their books. Father even took down the information of the published book to do some research and may even get some for his Church. Thank you, thank you. I was so glad to find you
