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!

Not what I was looking for
I was disappointed and unable to finish the audiobook. I must not have looked closely at it's content. i was looking for a history of Orthodox (Eastern) Christianity. This book would be more appropriate for an individual interested in joining a branch of the Eastern Church and the current practices. It is not without the usual stereotypes of the Western tradition and it's beliefs.
