Review: The Orthodox Way

The Orthodox WayThe Orthodox Way by Kallistos Ware
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve been waiting to read this book for some time, largely because I wanted to explore the spiritual life of the Orthodox world. There is something distinctly compelling about the Eastern approach to the Christian life, and the Christian life is significantly expanded when it is possible to breathe with both lungs (as Popes have said many times since the Second Vatican Council).

The writer of this time is perfectly positioned to help draw the Western reader into an exploration of ‘the other side’s, being both Orthodox and English in addition to being both erudite and an excellent communicator. The bishop’s command of language and subject matter serves the reader well.

There is much to reflect upon in this volume, and I suspect that the contribution to my current sabbatical experience will unfold in God’s own time.
