Eastern Orthodoxy is one of North America's fastest-growing faiths, yet relatively few people understand this non-Western form of Christianity. Steeped in icons, incense, historic saints, mystical writings, and ancient spiritual disciplines, Orthodoxy is a mystery in much of the West. At the Corner of East and Now helps the reader understand both the roots of this age-old tradition and the passion with which it is practiced by its contemporary followers.
Weaving her narrative with stories, essays, and reflections on the 1,600-year-old liturgy of the Church, Frederica Mathewes-Green critiques contemporary culture through the lens of one who seeks to live by the tenets of an ancient spiritual practice.
