Excellent!

If I've heard a better lecture series I can't remember when. the lecturer is erudite, eloquent, and thoroughly invested in the subject matter.

Thorough overview, even-handed and yet faithful.

Thorough overview, even-handed and yet faithful. The book is well organized, so if some sections are not as interesting, it is easy to skip around and find the information you need .

Scholarly and informative.

This is a fast paced overview of the Orthodox Church. The author's comparative study of the churches of the East and West was gently balanced.

Does not play on Windows 10 Audible

I will change the review if it starts to work on Windows 10 Audible.
At least it works on Android.
