Welcome to the Orthodox Church
- An Introduction to Eastern Christianity
- By: Frederica Mathewes-Green
- Narrated by: Frederica Mathewes-Green
- Length: 13 hrs and 34 mins
Welcome to the Orthodox Church - its history, theology, worship, spirituality, and daily life. This friendly guide provides a comprehensive introduction to Orthodoxy, but with a twist: listeners learn by making a series of visits to a fictitious church, and get to know the faith as new Christians did for most of history, by immersion. Mathews-Green provides commentary and explanations on everything from how to "venerate" an icon, the Orthodox understanding of the atonement, to the Lenten significance of tofu.
Oh my! Everything I hoped, and SO much more!
