Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity, Third Edition traces Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity from their roots in early Christian churches to the way these religions are observed today. Recounted here is the historical passage of the Catholic and Orthodox faiths, from the original teachings of Jesus Christ to the early separation of the Eastern and Western Churches to recent attempts at reconciliation.
The central doctrines of Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity are explored as a background to such current issues as the child abuse scandals of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States and the many tensions over abortion and gay marriage that exist in American society. The philosopy of Pope Benedict XVI, ecumenism and interreligious dialogue, and the role of lay communities are also highlighted. The book is published by Chelsea House Publishers, a leading publisher of educational material.

This book treats the church as if it is wrong and only the Roman catholics have the answer, even though they came from the holy orthrodox church. If your Roman catholic, you will feel the same as before, better than everyone else, if your Greek Orthodox pass it up.
Needed to be truthful comparison.
Greek Orthodox stay away.
The content. I was looking for an honest comparison, not a blame session.
On this subject, Nothing until more material is added. I find it very odd that the Second largest Christian denomination has in essence no material on Audible even though a good number of books have been made in Audio Book form.
If your looking for an Honest comparison of the two religions. Look elsewhere.
