This book journeys into what, for many Western readers, are unchartered waters. Frederica Mathewes-Green writes about Eastern Orthodoxy as an active layperson and wife of an Orthodox priest. A recent convert from Protestantism, she enthusiastically champions Orthodoxy, underscoring its unique place in the Christian faith. The author's journalistic style, drawn from her experience as a columnist and radio commentator, brings a sense of immediacy and relevance to her faith. Her church's Sunday morning liturgical service is the thread which binds her narratives together.
