Acclaimed author Frederica Mathewes-Green takes us through a typical Divine Liturgy in her little parish of Holy Cross in Baltimore, setting of her well-loved book Facing East. Interspersed with reflections on the liturgy and the Orthodox faith are accounts of adventures around the country. In all the places she visits and all the people she meets, Frederica finds insights about faith, American life, and what it means to be human, and she shares these insights with the with, pathos, and folksy friendliness that have made her one of the most beloved spiritual writers in America.
"A thoughtful source of inspiration for any truth-seeker... If as Mathewes-Green writes, most people have been fed a boiled down 'oatmeal version' of faith, then At the Corner of East and Now offers more demanding fare for those with discerning palates." -Los Angeles Times
