Prayers from the East: Traditions of Eastern Christianity

Prayers from the East: Traditions of Eastern Christianity

This rich anthology offers new insight into an ancient form of Christianity still little understood in the West. An introduction to the rich diversity of the six "Ancient and Oriental Orthodox" churches — Egyptian Copts, Armenians, Syrians, Indian Malankara, Ethiopian, and Eritrean — through their distinctive tradition of prayer and worship, it provides both a survey of the history and theology of these Eastern Orthodox traditions as well as an anthology of their personal prayers, blessings, and liturgical prayers. The collection highlights the distinctiveness of Eastern Christian spirituality along with its connections to Western theology and worship.
