WELCOME TO THE HOME OF AKRIBOS PRESS!
Akribos Press is a publishing imprint dedicated to making available to the public opinions and perspectives, in well-researched, prepared and thoughtful forms, on matters spiritual, social and philosophical to which they have not been previously exposed, from authors with new voices and with fresh ideas that might not be appreciated, or left intact in their original nature by other publishing venues. “Akribos” is translated in English in Thayer’s Greek Lexicon as “accurately” or “diligently,” or as in the case of the King James translation of Ephesians 5:15, as “circumspectly.” The goal is to publish narratives that exhibit the principle of “circumspectness,” or the pursuit of holistically “looking at all sides” of a matter or issue, to discern the true nature of the circumstance. In fact, Merriam-Webster defines the term “circumspect” to be “careful to consider all circumstances and possible consequences: prudent.” It appears to be related to the Latin word circumspicere— “to look around.” Just as “first in” Special Forces may parachute or repel from a chopper into an open field behind enemy lines, looking in 360 degrees around them to quickly assess opportunity or danger, and friend or foe hidden in the brush, Akribos Press authors take efforts to look in directions that others might have missed, and digest the full measure of understanding on complex topics, or supplement them with missing intelligence data and uncovered relationships. This pursuit has an unabashed and essential philosophical and spiritual component, or as St. Paul wisely advised the Church at Ephesus,
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
