My New Book Has Been Released!

I am pleased to announce that my new book, Face to Face, Knowing God Beyond Our Shame, has just been published and released by Ancient Faith. You can click on the link and order it. I hope to complete the audio version as soon as my voice comes back.

This has been a long labor of love.

Order the book here.








  1. So excited Father! Just ordered 2 copies. Thank you for this much anticipated book!

  2. So very exciting! As a Roman Catholic, I always find the way you write about the things we hold in common so refreshing and insightful. Ad multos annos!

  3. Thank you for this gift, Father! Together one step closer to God… what a joy!

  4. Wonderful!
    Very good news, Father.
    Looking forward to growing in wisdom with your help!

  5. Dear Father I so excited and grateful. I’m ordering a copy when I get home!!


  6. Congratulations! Ordering for shipment overseas, shipping costs more than the book itself. Any plans to make it available through Amazon?

  7. Please let us know when your book is available in a digital format so that I can read it on my Kindle.
    Thank you.

  8. Thanks Dean. I guess I should have checked before asking. Looking forward to reading this.

  9. I’ve been waiting for this! Congratulations! I was at your talk in Kemp, Texas on Saturday and it was so healing!

  10. Don’t forget 8th Day Books. An extraordinary store, with an extraordinary proprietor of books, Orthodox books especially. Warren Farha. He has a source of knowledge about Orthodox books that rivals the internet, IMO, and is almost as fast retrieving it from his lovely Orthodox mind.
    He and his family will be grateful.

  11. I am going to order this for our church bookstore. I am very grateful for your dedication and work on this – it is needed by so many. Gods Blessings

  12. Glory to God!

    I have been looking forward to reading it! Our church bookstore in Australia will have some copies.

  13. I definitely want to read this! Unfortunately the paperback copy, which is my preference, costs a lot to ship to my location. Will the paperback book be available through other retailers?
    Congratulations on finishing your labour of love.

  14. Thanks Fr Stephen. I’m in Canada. I don’t mind buying an e-book; I just prefer the print book for those I really like (and I’m sure I’ll like yours). But maybe I’ll get the e book first and figure out how to get the real book later.

  15. Just an FYI,
    The Ancient Faith store still has copies to sell. And as others have said the kindle version is available on Amazon. Last, when the Eighth Day book store has it, I’ll also purchase from them, too, to support their business.

    Blessed Lent!

  16. “Gee whiz,
    Those are serious mark-ups on price!”

    That’s in Canadian dollars. The prices would be equivalent to $16.70 and $19.12 in US dollars. (So the mark-ups are not as bad as they look at first glance.)

  17. I’m really looking forward to the audiobook since I have limited time to sit down & read at this stage of life given the time constraints that come from parenting two children while my wife & I both work busy jobs.

  18. Timmy,
    Give it a couple of months. I’m getting over a respiratory infection and waiting for my voice to get back to form so I can complete the recordings – then the audio editor has to do his marvelous work. But patience will be rewarded!

  19. Get well soon, Father. There is no shame in slowing down and allowing your body to heal in accord with God’s will.

  20. Delighted to see this.

    Father, can you remember the newly departed Joel? Our cousin’s 18 month old son just drowned in a pond, and the family is deeply grieving.

  21. Great news! I was expecting this book for a while now. For the past few months, I have been immersed in studying about trauma, wounds, healing, shame, grace, etc… I am currently up to the first chapter… and I can tell already that this will be a classic!
    Thank you, Father Stephen, and thank God for the journey He has taken you through!
