Christianity in a One-Storey Universe

Conciliar Press has just made my book, Everywhere Present: Christianity in a One-Storey Universe, available for pre-ordering. It is due to be released on March 1. I greatly appreciate the encouragement I have had from readers as this work has been unfolding and pray that it will be useful. I’ll keep everyone posted on any developments, should there be any.


  1. I am a recent visitor to your site and look forward to your posts. I am so happy that this book is being published and look forward to reading it. God bless you.

  2. Congratulations. Do you know if the book will be available electronically via Amazon or Apple?

  3. I am assuming it is along the same lines as your previous postings here on the subject. If it is as good as I think it will be, I’ll be ordering some for our parish bookstore!

  4. Congratulations, Father! This is wonderful news!! 🙂 I plan to purchase a copy for the library where I work. I also shared the good news of its release with my Facebook network. Glory to God!

  5. How wonderful! Congratulations! I am sooooo looking forward to reading an entire book of your terrific writing.

  6. Fr Stephen, I have always enjoyed your blog and just ordered a copy. May God grant you many years.

  7. Excellent news, Father -I will definitely order the book and I am thinking thsat it might end up as something useful for my class. Congrats on its publication.

  8. The time between now and March 1 will probably seem like an eternity (to you AND us) – but the wait will be worth it! Congratulations and blessings!

  9. Is there a way to order the book and have it shipped via USPS? The shipping through UPS is about 3 times more than what the Post office charges.

  10. CONGRATULATION, Father Stephen. I will save up my pennies to buy. Just curious, but from the inference of the title, it seems as though the main idea of the book is to enlighten readers (whether Orthodox or not) of our wrong two-storey universe thinking and then reveal how to change our mind-set into living as Christians in a one-storey universe. Am I in the ball park?

  11. Father Stephen, Many Blessings on this work of Grace.
    Interesting cover. Any idea why this was chosen? I was expecting something more ‘out there’ cosmically speaking. It’s all good though. It’s all good.

  12. Great! I’m looking forward to receiving the book, and plan to get it in our Parish Bookstore. In fact, I may begin a study group using it.

    Any plan for signed copies?

  13. How exciting! I’ve already forwarded this on to parishes with bookstores here in town. I know a great study group who will enjoy the topic.

  14. I’m very happy for you and looking forward to getting the book. Like Mary, I am not happy with Conciliar Press’s confiscatory shipping charge, which almost equals the price of the book itself. I realize this is out of your control. But if any CP execs might be reading this comment . . . I’m just saying.

  15. I looked again, and you’re right. But the free shipping is only for media mail, and you have to call in your order by phone to get media mail, which they don’t tell you until you’ve nearly completed the online order form, because their “website is currently not set up to process shipments using Media Mail” (i.e., “we want to make extra money from excessive shipping charges, so we make it inconvenient for you to order Media Mail shipping”).

    Again, sorry to vent about CP in your comments. It’s not your fault and I’m muddying up the festive mood of this thread. Let’s just say I have multiple issues with CP and here’s another one. Be that as it may, it’s a great thing that your book is finally going out into the world. It’s a book the world needs, and I’ll be buying it, even if I do it with some grumbling about its publisher.

  16. Thanks, Diane! Don’t know how you figured this out from the CP website, but thanks for the “Media Mail” info. I knew the site advertised “free shipping” for advance orders, as Father states, but kept running up against that whopping fee when I tried to order online. Will call them tomorrow.
    Blessings, Father!

  17. Father,

    Will your book be in non-Orthodox book stores as well, such as Christian book stores and secular book stores (Barnes & Noble)?

  18. I’m glad to see your first book coming out Fr. Stephen. Hopefully Conciliar will want to turn this into an audio book as well.

  19. Thanks for expressing your concern about the unavailability of media mail on the web site. This was a temporary problem which has been fixed now. We are concerned about any problems our customers are having and would love to hear from you directly when there are concerns. AND, we are very excited about Fr. Stephen Freeman’s new book! So much so, that the first 3 readers of this blog who contact me will receive a free copy! My email is jmaddex at conciliarmedia dot com.

  20. BTW, the 800 # to call for free media shipping is 1-800-967-7377;
    a very sweet helpful lady will answer and help you!

  21. I actually just ordered something from Conciliar and saw that it is coming out. I am looking forward to getting it and reading it as I have benefited from reading your blog. May God continue to bless you and your service to His Kingdom.
