The Orthodox Liturgy

I was recently sent a new book, rather short and accessible, written by Vassilios Papavassiliou: Journey to the Kingdom: An Insider's Look at the Liturgy and Beliefs of the Eastern Orthodox Church (Paraclete Press, 2012), 196pp.

About this book the publisher tells us:
The Orthodox Liturgy is not just an act of worship, but a potentially life-changing journey. Fr. Papavassiliou takes you through this journey with clarity and passion, exploring the Liturgy as a reflection of heavenly worship, and an invitation to enter the Kingdom of God. The hymns, prayers, creed and actions of the Liturgy are explained, covering subjects such as Communion, Trinity, baptism, sainthood, Resurrection, and much more. The book includes a map to guide you on your journey and 20 illustrations.

  1. I am a frequent reader (I almost always put your books on my amazon wishlist) and I just started as Manager of Marketing of Communication at Hellenic College Holy Cross. I thought you might be interested in our upcoming Symposium on this topic with Fr. Robert Taft as the keynote.

    Please feel free to spread the word!

    Thank You,
    Josh Cole
