Kurzbeschreibung

30. August 2012
Since its first publication thirty years ago, Timothy Ware's book has become established throughout the English-speaking world as the standard introduction to the Orthodox Church. Orthodoxy continues to be a subject of enormous interest among Western Christians, and the author believes that an understanding of its standpoint is necessary before the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches can be reunited. He explains the Orthodox views on such widely ranging matters as ecumenical councils, sacraments, free will, purgatory, the papacy and the relation between the different Orthodox churches.

2.0 von 5 Sternen No longer trustworthy. 25. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
After its latest revision, Bishop Kallistos (Timothy Ware)'s book no longer provides a good starting point for those generally unfamiliar with the original Christian Church, its history, and its doctrines. This revised edition shows signs of compromise with the general melt-down of bygone Christianity going on in Great Britain. For example, His Grace says that the question of female priests is seen by the Orthodox as an open question; one wonders what in the world he can be talking about, since there isn't a hint of this development in any of the sources of authority the Church understands as binding. (Can you say "when Gehenna freezes over"?) Here, he must be trying to appeal to the culture around him. Additionally, his approach to the lamentable ecumenical efforts in which the Ecumenical Patriarchate is engaged is deplorable: it is simply inconsistent with the Church's history for its hierarchs to participate in WCC events that include pagan prayers, etc., even if only as observers. A non-Orthodox who read this edition at my suggestion came back to me with the notion that Bishop Kallistos' teaching regarding the relationship among the various "Christian" bodies differed from what I had previously explained. That was true, since I had repeated the Church's nearly 2,000-year-old insistence that it is the one, true Way. In this regard, Bishop Kallistos' attempts to be "understanding" are simply going to mislead the heterodox regarding what they are missing (i.e., the New Testament fellowship of Christ). The unbroken witness of the Church disagrees strongly with his "friendly" opinions. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

4.0 von 5 Sternen A COMPREHENSIVE ACCOUNT OF ORTHODOXY 7. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
this book i s exactly what one would expect of a Penguin book written by a british author. Frighteningly erudite but also a bit dry and unlively. Only two real criticisms can I list that i also think would be of interest to a potential buyer. One: the author does not really explain in a SIMPLE, PLAIN way how the orthodox church is governed. It is not called byzantine for nothing and you will see why after you have read the book. There must be some way of making the subject simpler and this book did not do it. Two: the history, level, and extent of corruption of the byzantine church along with the horrendous anti-semitism that the church has been accused of is just barely covered in this book and hardly noticeable. One scarcely knows whether to believe the accusations or not. Overall a fine piece of work. But the reader should be aware that if he wants to find a primer on church government or an in depth history this is certainly not the book nor i suppose was it intended to be.

Von Kelli
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the best single-volume introduction to Eastern Christianity currently available. Bishop Ware's approach covers virtually all aspects of the Eastern Church -- history, theology, sacramentality, church organization, and the Orthodox diaspora with a special emphasis on rendering Orthodoxy comprehensible to Western Christian readers. Ware's approach is very ecumenical, and he frankly and even-handedly addresses the issues that unite and divide the Christian East and West. Because of his own dual background as a Westerner (he teaches at Oxford) who chose to become Orthodox, Ware is particularly well-situated to explain the wondrous and beautiful mysteries of Eastern Christianity to Westerners. While the book is in the nature of a broad overview, it actually covers the issues addressed in an impressive level of depth. The bibliography is also a great starting point for further reading and research, broken down helpfully by topic. This book is a must-read for anyone wishing to acqaint themselves with the riches of the Eastern Christian tradition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding!!! 12. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
In his book, Bishop Ware offers not only a historical look at the Eastern Orthodox Church (singular), but a spiritual one as well. As a Melkite Greek Catholic I must confess a certain penchant for Orthodox writings (as most uniates do), and regard his grace as the foremost authority on the Orthodox Church living today. For any one who still may be confused in their association with the Eastern Church as nothing more than a relic of the past, I would recommend that they read this book. I would pass that admonition on to any lay Orthodox Christian who wants to supplement their knowledge of their church; as well as to any Roman Catholic who assumes that after Christ's Ascension, there was the papcy. There was, in fact, a pentarchy. An ecclesial fraternity of bishops existed. Such books are a wonderful reminder that our religion needs to be not only a witness to our theology--but to history as well.
Read this book!!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Classic introduction to Orthodoxy 11. Dezember 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
If you are interested in a foundational understanding of the Orthodox Christian faith, start here. Father Ware does an excellent job in tracing the history of the Orthodox religion from the beginning days to the post-Berlin wall times. While some of the history is difficult to follow, it establishes an underpinning of why the Orthodox religion has endured virtually unchanged from the days of Acts.
While the first half of the book deals with history, the second the the real meal here: Father Ware discusses the major tenants of what it means to be Orthodox. While his book didn't touch me as personally as Frederica Matthewes-Green's, it convinced me that there's much more to the Orthodox faith than I ever imagined.
