Item Description...
Overview
A fascinating exploration of the spiritual roots of Orthodox Christianity. The Byzantine tradition--Christian culture that arose in the eastern part of the Roman Empire--fed the rise of Orthodoxy in the Greek and Slavic worlds. Today, thirst for authentic spirituality attracts new interest in the Byzantine tradition's taste for beauty, science of prayer, and emphasis on the quest for holiness.

MEDIOCRE CHRISTIAN ORIENTALISM  Jun 4, 2008
The title line from Yeats should give it away: This is an exercise in Christian (I use the term freely) Orientalism. It says some good things about the Orthodox Faith, from a western point of view that barely if at all escapes condescension. McG. defends the "Eastern Church" where it needs no defense and by his defense "doth protest too much."

Orthodoxy is classic Christianity. Period. The West has departed from it. It should give up its superior posturing and come home the the Faith. Orthodoxy is not picturesque; it is true. Byzantium is not a place to sail to for exotic thrills; it is the ancient home of the Christian Church. Go there not for a thrill, but to learn.
 
A Must Read For Any Catholic, Byzantine Or Otherwise  Jun 23, 2002
I've been searching for some basic knowledge of my Byzantine heritage for quite some time. "Standing In God's Holy Fire" has quenched my thirst. I now understand why the Byzantines have the type of liturgy that we have. This book is a "Must Read" !
