HASH(0xa09982a0) out of 5 stars Superbly Informative ... Inspirational April 17 2014

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 more 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.

HASH(0xa09984c8) out of 5 stars Excellent book Feb. 7 2014

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.

HASH(0xa099872c) out of 5 stars Awesome Book Jan. 22 2014
By Nichole D. Collins - Published on
My father attends an Orthodox Church with my niece and nephew. I had an urge, or rather a push, to take my daughter there, at least for one Sunday. My sister, who is not a believer, suggested I look into the religion before I went. I was looking at books on my Kindle and found this one, which I got through the Kindle Lending Library.
Well, to say I was overwhelmed, in the best possible way, by the beauty within this book, would be and understatement. It has opened my eyes to a new way of looking at God and Church. This was by far, one of the best books I have read in a very long time. I had trouble putting it down, which is always a good indicator of a good book in my eyes. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking into The Orthodox Church, for any reason.

HASH(0xa09986a8) out of 5 stars Best Intro to the Orthodox Faith June 17 2015

Best introduction to the Eastern Orthodox faith you'll find. I give this away by the dozens. It's written in "people speak" yet gives one a great foundation in the faith. Coniaris uses a lot of "picture words" to explain things. Great for any age-group.

HASH(0xa0998c90) out of 5 stars Great introduction to Orthodoxy Nov. 18 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Being someone who grew up in the church but remaining unfulfilled I found this book to be a great introduction to the Orthodox church. I had been raised Baptist and grew into Methodist as an adult but still had doubts about my faith and being saved. I just felt like something was missing and I needed more. I became interested in Orthodoxy after visiting an Orthodox church this spring and in searching for answers to what Orthodoxy was I found this book. Reading this book has deepened my resolve to explore Orthodoxy and to combine continue my search for worship the way it was meant to be.
