Orthodoxy is the dominant religion in Greece, Russia and Eastern Europe. It has remained essentially unchanged since early days of Christianity with practices that are unfamiliar to most Westerners but who will learn about them here through this understandable introduction! I'm going tell you what it means for someone else if they come visit my church or Christian home - how we greet each other (and not just because its polite), why people dress up nice on holydays like Christmas ; how an icon acts as god's messenger within Your Worshipful Home Church.

The Orthodox Church is a powerful medium for its message that has been passed down through history. It's liturgy, hierarchy and approach make it an interesting religion to learn about the intricacies of this ancient institution which still thrives today under different leaders than those who first founded it centuries ago due largely in part because they were so great at preserving tradition even when others weren't around anymore after Constantine became emperor - he legalized Christianity becoming influential over all other religions existing during his time period.

The Orthodox Church is one of the three main Christian denominations. It is characterized by its adherence to the teachings of the early Church Fathers and its rejection of later developments such as the filioque clause and papal authority.

Orthodoxy emphasizes continuity with the Christian past and teaches that it is the true continuation of the ancient apostolic church. It has strong ties to Eastern Christianity and shares many traditions with the other Eastern churches, such as Syriac Christianity and Coptic Christianity.

The Orthodox Church is not in communion with the Catholic Church or any other Western Christian denomination. It recognizes the pope as the head of the Catholic Church but does not consider him to be infallible or to have universal jurisdiction.

The Orthodox Church is organized into national churches, each of which is independent and has its own hierarchy. The most important Orthodox churches are the Russian Orthodox Church, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, the Romanian Orthodox Church, and the Greek Orthodox Church.

The Orthodox Church teaches that there is one true God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It also teaches that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became human and died for our sins. It believes that we are saved by grace through faith in Christ and that our ultimate goal is to live with God in heaven.

Timothy Ware's book has become established throughout the English-speaking world as an introduction to Orthodoxy. The author believes that Western Christians need knowledge about this religion before they can reunite with Catholicism or Protestantism, and he explains its views on such widely ranging matters like ecumenical councils (where leaders meet), sacraments -which give people power over their lives from God-, free will vs determination; purgatory where souls pay for sins committed in previous lifetimes
