"Father Vassilios' book will be of great use to anyone coming to the Orthodox liturgy for the first time, as well as those brought up immersed in the Byzantine liturgical tradition, but who wish to come to know and understand it more deeply." -Very Rev. Archpriest Stephen Platt, General Secretary, The Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius

There is no better way to understand the theology, passion, and faith of Eastern Orthodoxy than by entering into its central worship: the Divine Liturgy. Fr. Papavassiliou takes you on this journey with clarity and passion, exploring the Liturgy as a reflection of heavenly worship and an invitation to enter the Kingdom of God. The hymns, prayers, creed, and actions of the Liturgy are explained, covering subjects such as communion, Trinity, baptism, sainthood, and resurrection. As a result, this book offers a thorough introduction to Orthodoxy, and includes a map as well as 20 beautiful black and white illustrations.

Fr. Vassilios Papavassiliou is a priest of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira and Great Britain and author of numerous articles on Christian Orthodox faith and theology. He was born in London in 1977 and holds degrees in pastoral and social theology, classics, and Byzantine music.
