This little book is almost like reading poetry. Aside from longer quotations, sentences are not crammed together into paragraphs. Rather, sentences are broken into clauses, each clause on a separate line separated by a few spaces. The result is that, as you read, each clause sinks in, the individual words and phrases matter. Your conceptual mind slows down a bit and the theology becomes poetry and prayer. The formatting is itself part of the Orthodox message: religion is a mystery (=something more) that no words convey; the spaces between the words, the silences between what we say, the pauses between our actions -- there is God. The content is itself a splendid synopsis of the main points of Orthodox faith by a well-known representative of that tradition (see his 'The Orthodox Way').
