Publisher's Summary

This fascinating course invites you into the rich spiritual world of Eastern Christianity. Tracing their history back to the Apostolic Age, Eastern Christian churches keep alive ancient traditions. The modern world has much to learn from Eastern Christians: their perspectives are fresh yet steeped in history, familiar yet unique. Despite its origins in the East, the narrative of Christianity too often focuses on Western traditions. Now, this 12-lecture course offers you a glimpse into the living faith of the Eastern Christian churches.

Your guide is award-winning professor Stefanos Alexopoulos, an Orthodox priest who teaches at The Catholic University of America. Under his guidance, you will explore the Eastern spiritual perspectives on such topics as scripture, monasticism, prayer, liturgy, salvation, repentance, and the saints. By looking at these themes through a new lens, you will discover what makes Eastern Christianity different from and similar to Western Christianity.

Scholarly yet accessible, these engaging lectures invite you to encounter these traditions and practices firsthand and to uncover the treasures of Eastern Christianity. Today, millions of indigenous Christians live out the Gospel in homelands hostile towards their faith - a faith for which many die as martyrs. These lectures will help you recognize these Eastern Christians as your brothers and sisters in faith. Let the faith of your fellow Christians inspire your own as you bear witness to Christ.

A great introduction

Fr Stephanos does a great job of introducing many of the traditions of the Eastern Church. An excellent catechism.
