Overview

This short anthology offers new insight into ancient forms of Christianity still little understood in the West. It introduces and displays the rich diversity of the Eastern Orthodox Churches -- Egyptian Copts, Armenians, Syrians, Indian Malankara, Ethiopian and Eritrean -- through their distinctive traditions of prayer and worship. It provides a survey of the history and theology of the Eastern Orthodox traditions as well as an anthology of their prayers. "With unceasing lips, an unsilenced heart" (St. Cyril), these prayers attest to the rich abundance of Eastern engagement with the divine.
