    This is an excellent introduction to the Eastern Orthodox Churches It has been revised and is very clear and concise As a Catholic myself I was struck by what Catholics and the orthodox churches have in common and that they are very close in doctrines especially about the Holy Eucharist However there are still outstanding differences which will have be dealt with before there is a full reunion of these two ancient churches I highly recommend this book by timothy ware.

    It gives a good overview of Orthodox Christianity OC I had no idea about OC But now I know at least the historical background of it and its theology So it is a good introduction to people who need fundamental knowledge of OC.The theology part could have been elaborated so that I could learn a bit .I am an evangelical Christian, holding many different views from OC However, I think the value of church history would benefit individual Christian if they truly understand it I also think there is a trend that the edge of denominations is getting blurred there is a chance that Christians of different background could learn from each other after overcoming biases.

    Love this book It s easy to read for interest or serious study By the end of the book, you will want to find out Ware was ordained an Orthodox priest, so he writes with a bias towards his church, but still fascinating.

    Far too much intricate detail for an introduction, but a fascinating read

    An informative and readable introduction to the controversies of the early church and to Orthodoxy Mostly scholarly sometimes amusingly partisan.
