'Orthodoxy is not just a kind of Roman Catholicism without the Pope, but something quite distinct from any religious system in the west. Yet those who look more closely at this 'unknown world' will discover much in it which, while different, is yet curiously familiar' Since its first publication fifty years ago, Timothy Ware's book has become established throughout the English-speaking world as the standard introduction to Eastern Christianity. In this fully revised and updated third edition he explains the Orthodox views on such widely ranging matters as Free Will, Purgatory, the Papacy and the relation between the different Churches, making this the definitive guide for both Orthodox and non-Orthodox alike.
