Publisher's Summary

The classic story of a family's pilgrimage into the Orthodox Church.
Veiled in the smoke of incense, the Eastern Orthodox Church has long been an enigma to the Western world. Yet, as Frederica Mathewes-Green discovered, it is a vital, living faith, rich in ritual beauty and steadfast in integrity. Utilizing the framework of the Orthodox calendar, Mathewes-Green chronicles a year in the life of her small Orthodox mission church, eloquently illustrating the joys and blessings an ancient faith can bring to the worshipers of today.

Great intro to Orthodoxy

Wonderful book for a Protestant seeker like myself. Provides a different angle than just theology. My only complaint is the audio of the book. I like it when authors read their own books, but in this case, as in another book by the same author, she needs a compressor on her voice to help even out her quiet moments and her louder moments. She frequently drops into quiet "vocal fry," which is great, but requires me to crank the volume, only to be blasted when she speaks more loudly. But don't let that stop you from enjoying this excellent book.
