Overview
Welcome to the Orthodox Church its history, theology, worship, spirituality, and daily life. This friendly guide provides a comprehensive introduction to Orthodoxy, but with a twist: readers learn by making a series of visits to a fictitious church, and get to know the faith as new Christians did for most of history, by immersion. Mathews-Green provides commentary and explanations on everything from how to venerate an icon, the Orthodox understanding of the atonement, to the Lenten significance of tofu. It s the perfect book for inquirers and newcomers, but even readers who have been Orthodox all their say they learned things they never knew before. Enjoyable, easy-to-read, and leavened with humor, "Welcome to the Orthodox Church" is a gracious guide to the ancient faith of the Christian East.
