He explains that, to grasp Orthodoxy, we must think and act as the Orthodox do. This involves suspending the Western analytical tendency and allowing free rein to the synthetic tendency, which enables us to detect a unity and perceive, however dimly, the interaction between the parts and the whole in relation to God and the Church. The author draws on a wealth of material, from the Church Fathers to straight-talking Mother Thekla, to explore the essentials of belief. He provides guidance on participating in the Liturgy, the requirements for fasting, confession and Orthodox prayer. In celebrating the culture of Orthodoxy shaped by many different ethnicities and languages, gloriously expressed in art, music and literature this volume fully conveys the rigour and joy of becoming and being Orthodox. About the Author: DR MARTIN DUDLEY is the author of the bestselling Churchwardens: A Survival Guide. He holds several degrees in theology and is currently involved in research on health and the theology of the body at Helsinki University, Finland. Ordained as an Anglican priest in 1980, he served for 21 years as Rector of St Bartholomew the Great in the City of London before taking early retirement. After a year of discernment, he was received into the Orthodox Church in March 2018. He is a member of the International Orthodox Theological Association.
