Product Description

The Orthodox Church by Timothy Ware is a clear, detailed introduction to the Orthodox Church written for the non-Orthodox as well as for Orthodox Christians who wish to know more about their own tradition. Since its first publication more than 30 years ago, Ware's book has become established throughout the English-speaking world as the standard introduction to the Orthodox Church. In this newly revised and updated edition he explains the Orthodox views on such widely ranging matters as the ecumenical councils, sacraments, free will, purgatory, the papacy, and relations between the different Orthodox churches. In part 1 he describes the history of the Eastern church. In part two he explains the beliefs and worship of the Orthodox Church today. He discusses the possibility of reunion between East and West and in this new edition he discusses the situation confronting Eastern Christians since the collapse of communism.

Ware (b. 1934), also known as His Grace, the Right Reverend Kallistos of Diokleia, is an titular metropolitan of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in the United Kingdom. From 1966 to 2001, he was Spalding Lecturer of Eastern Orthodox Studies at Oxford University, and has authored numerous books and articles pertaining to the Orthodox Christian faith.

    A fascinating introduction to a fascinating subject. Ware does a marvelous job of explaining the Orthodox tradition to those who know little or nothing about it, providing a thorough, yet concise treatment of the history, beliefs, and practice of the Byzantine Church and its spiritual descendants. The beauty of his writing give the book a quasi-devotional quality to it that is often lacking in books like this. I hope very soon to read it again.
