    I was curious about the teachings of the Eastern church This book provides a comprehensive summary, and explains when appropriate some of the for differences differences between Orthodox and Roman doctrines While the Roman church too often has moved away from and added to Biblical doctrines, those of the Eastern church have preserved and adhered much closely to the doctrines of the apostles and hence the truly catholic universal foundation on which our Lord built His church Of course some Eastern teachings are different from the thoughts and practices of western protestant, but Coniaris provides satisfying explanations for those differences His explanation of the background and reasons for depicting icons on the walls of buildings is intriguing they provide a visual portrayal of God s plan of salvation and thus proclaim the Good News for those who aren t able to read the written Scriptures To God be the glory.

    This was the first book I was given when I became interested in Orthodox Christianity, and, as a convert, I do go back from time to time for a refresher in the basics Easy to read and understand and at the same time engaging and keeps one s attention I bought it on Kindle for a friend with vision problems even though I still have my original paperback copy.

    As someone trying to discern if the Orthodox Church is where I belong I have found this book extremely valuable It answers questions of faith in depth and detail I especially liked the chapter about Divine Liturgy It goes over all the symbolism and tells why thing are done as they are I am no expert but I feel everyone thinking about conversion should read this book.
