This book is a general account of the doctrine, worship and life of Orthodox Christians. It raises the basic issues of theology: God as hidden yet revealed; the problem of evil; the nature of salvation; the meaning of faith; prayer; death and what lies beyond. Throughout the book, Bishop Kallistos Ware shows the meaning of Orthodox doctrine for the life of the individual Christian. Doctrinal issues are seen not as abstract propositions for theological debate but as affecting the whole of life. --From publisher's description.

User Review  - Fr. M. Blake Greenlee -

For those wishing to study Orthodox Christianity, this is the place to start. Bishop Ware writes extremely clearly, his understanding of the faith of the Apostles comes through clearly. He guides the reader through the basic tenets of the faith. I heartily recommend this book! Read full review

User Review  - Arctic-Stranger - LibraryThing

The thing I like about the Orthodox is that they do not split theology from spirituality, and Ware is one of the best and clearest writers in this tradition. To learn about God is secondary to knowing God. Read full review
