The Orthodox Way by Kallistos Ware

The Orthodox Way by Kallistos Ware
 Stepping out onto the path

Kallistos Ware is an archbishop in the Eastern Orthodox Church, and his book on one level is an introduction to the life and faith of Orthodox Christians. But at a deeper level it is an invitation to live a fully human life, discovering the God who is both beyond our understanding, but also uniquely close to us.

“There is only one means of discovering the true nature of Christianity,” says Kallistos Ware. “We must step out upon this path, commit ourselves to this way of life, and then we shall begin to see for ourselves. So long as we remain outside, we cannot properly understand.”

Rather than being a rundown of Christian beliefs, The Orthodox Way opens up the spiritual life in writing which is full of stories and word pictures. It is a profoundly human book, too, covering the issues of evil, suffering, death and what lies beyond it. One of the glories of the book is its frequent use of short quotes from wise spiritual writers, which in itself is an invitation to go on and read more.

For anyone who wants to understand the heart of the Christian faith, and not just its head, The Orthodox Way is a wonderful place to start.

What readers have said about the book…

“This is not a complicated treatise for experts, but a readable, usable guide for everyone wishing to uncover the incomparable glories of Orthodox spirituality.” A Customer, Amazon

“The Orthodox Way has perhaps the best brief summary of what Jesus accomplished by his passion and death on the cross, not to mention his birth, life, teachings and resurrection, which are all part of the story.” Volkert Volkersz, Amazon
