Product description

From the Inside Flap

There is no better way to understand the theology, passion, and faith of Eastern Orthodoxy than by entering into its central worship: the Divine Liturgy. Fr. Papavassiliou takes you on this journey with clarity and passion, exploring the Liturgy as a reflection of heavenly worship and an invitation to enter the Kingdom of God. The hymns, prayers, creed, and actions of the Liturgy are explained, covering subjects such as communion, Trinity, baptism, sainthood, and resurrection. As a result, this book offers a thorough introduction to Orthodoxy, and includes a map as well as 20 beautiful black & white illustrations.

“Readers of all backgrounds will gain a fuller and more profound understanding of the Holy Liturgy, and of the life and worship of the Orthodox Church.”

-Fr. John Nankivell, pastor, Greek Orthodox Church of the Nativity of the Mother of God, Walsall, West Midlands (England)

 

“Father Vassilios’s book will be of great use to anyone coming to the Orthodox liturgy for the first time, as well as those brought up immersed in the Byzantine liturgical tradition, but who wish to come to know and understand it more deeply.”

-The Very Revd Archpriest Stephen Platt, General Secretary, The Fellowship of St Alban and St Sergius (www.sobornost.org)

 

“This fresh and highly approachable study of the Orthodox Liturgy takes visitors through Royal Doors into a deeper and wider experience of the spiritual traditions of the Eastern Church.”

-V. Revd Fr. John A McGuckin, Professor of Byzantine Christian Studies, Columbia University, and compiler of Prayer Book of the Early Christians
