5.0 out of 5 stars The Orthodox Church Revealed, 9 Sept. 2011
This review is from: The Orthodox Church: An Introduction to Its History, Doctrine, and Spiritual Culture (Paperback)
This is a book for the Orthodox and non Orthodox alike.

Professor McGuckin, himself an Orthodox Priest, explains with great clarity the structure and history of the Church; the importance of the seven early councils and the writings of the Church Fathers. The division of the Eastern and Western Churches are set out with the Orthodox Church having a collegiate structure as opposed to the Roman model of a supreme Pontiff. This conflict over authority in ecclesiastical jurisdiction was as much a cause of the Great Schism of 1054 as the disagreement over the Western insertion of the Filioque clause to the Nicene Creed.

He reveals the doctrines, sacraments and liturgies while pointing a way forward for Orthodoxy in the modern world while retaining its Holy Tradition.

This book will inspire and refresh all those searching for a greater and loving spirituality in our increasingly material and secular world.
