A popular, lucid, and utterly practical introduction to the Orthodox way of life, this guide covers the whole spectrum of daily living according to the Holy Tradition of Orthodoxy.

It supplies detailed information, unavailable for the most part anywhere else in English, on Orthodox piety, fasting, maintaining a regular cycle of prayer in the home, family life, management of money, Church etiquette, preparation for the Mysteries, and proper behavior towards clergy and when visiting monasteries.
