The Orthodox tradition is arguably the most faithful representation of early Christianity in existence today. Yet despite a quarter billion adherents---including growing numbers of evangelical converts---it remains unfamiliar and mysterious to many. Payton's sympathetic, evenhanded introduction illuminates Orthodoxy's fascinating history, theology, and practice. Dispelling common misperceptions, he explores the riches of this ancient faith. 240 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.
