An excellent introduction to the difference between Christian Orthodox doctrine and practice compared to the many different post 1054 A.D. schism western Christian diversions from the ancient truth handed down by the Apostles. The author also includes a section discussing non-Christian cults and religions. Not only does he elucidate various differences but he also talks about where the Orthodox find common ground with the many groups he discusses. There is a humility about the book wherein the author, in spite of asserting the truth of the Orthodox Christian faith, which historically traces its roots directly to the Apostolic teaching and practices, he urges the Orthodox to not judge others for only God knows the hearts of humans. One reason I only rated the book a "4" was because there are no footnotes in the book, which makes further investigation into his claims virtually impossible. A very good read, however, for all who are seeking the truth and an open and humble conversation between the Orthodox and non-Orthodox.
