Summary
Western observers never fail to be awestruck at the celebration of the liturgy in an Orthodox church. Hugh Wybrew's authoritative yet highly readable account traces the fascinating story of the Orthodox liturgy from its origins in the first century to the present day, conveying a lively and memorable sense of what it would have felt like to be among the worshippers. 'We have long needed such an introduction. Clear yet detailed, sympathetic yet not uncritical, The Orthodox Liturgy will be of great value to Christian, whether western or eastern' Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia '[The Orthodox Liturgy] is solidly based on sound scholarship . . . written in a non-technical way which will be accessible to anyone who is interested in the history of Christian worship' Church Times.
