Many are hidden away in expensive, scholarishly-intimidating, multivolumesets of books. Other staples of Orthodox reading have only recently arrivedin English. Certain others are avoided as though proscribed: for priests only. Thoseobscured by ostensible over-familiarity are simply taken for granted and too often becomeburdensome obligation.Thevarious selections deal not so much with what Orthodox believe, but rather howOrthodox believe. They point toward a more Orthodox culture, world view, wayof life. The book is for hungry Orthodox: lifelong church members who feel theremust be more to Orthodoxy than they perceive on Sunday morning- converts whoseek the fullness they were promised- and reverts who left the Church becauseof hunger but now hungrily return.
