A Guide to Orthodox Life: Some Beliefs, Customs, and Traditions of the Church

   
Third Edition

Protopresbyter David Cownie and Presbytera Juliana Cownie

“[...W]e have tried in the various sections of this short book to summarize some of the traditional beliefs and customs of the Orthodox Church as they relate to the daily life of the believer and to the Church’s worship. We have brought these elements into focus in our discussion of the whole cycle of Christian life, from Baptism to marriage to the culmination of human life, death. We hope that our few, necessarily limited commentaries will help Orthodox converts and non–Orthodox Westerners to gain a more genuine glimpse into that ancient way that leads to human transformation and union with Christ: Orthodoxy.”
