Rezensionen
"As a handbook for what would be considered the traditionalOrthodox position on matters of Christian belief, thought, andpraxis, it is reliable, with relatively few omissions, and wellwritten." (CHURCH HISTORY, June 2009)

"The volume's detailed, comprehensive treatment will requireand repay a careful reading. Summing Up: Essential."(Choice, April 2009)

Throughout he writes with passion, deep sensitivity, and awonderful evocative clarity." (Logos, May 2009)

"[The book] will help the Orthodox to a deeper understanding ofthe riches of their faith and will introduce the non-Orthodox tofresh ways of thinking about their faith, and both to a renewedengagement with the life of the church." (EcclesiasticalHistory, April 2009)

"McGuckin's hope that his book may contribute to the dialoguebetween East and West deserves to be realised." (ChurchTimes, October 2008)
