    1 thought on “The Orthodox Way”

    1. I've now read Ware's The Orthodox Way three times over the last decade or so. (Something going on there?) Anyway, this time around a few things jumped out at me, or at least struck me as fresh and new with this reading. First, the title, which is sneaky smart. In the early days of the Church, Christianity was called "The Way." (I actually think there's an older Bible from the Jesus Freak days of the late 60s and 70s called the The Way.) That title itself harkens to John 14:6 ("I am the Way, the [...]

    2. I've always been an ecumenist. I believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic church, and believe that every creed professing person is a member of Christ's Church. A few years back, however, I had a few realizations that changed the form of my ecumenism.The first was the realization that sola scriptura, when seen in the ahistorical way many modern Evangelicals view it, is an untenable position.Second, I realized that the sort of ecumenism I had developed bordered dangerously on consumerism. Deno [...]

    3. Burn the HereticsWhenever my grandfather discusses Greece, he mentions his singular experience in the Greek Isles. Visiting an Orthodox Church with my grandmother, an Orthodox priest graciously administered a tour of the premises. The dialogue advanced swimmingly between the parties until the priest asked if my grandparents were Orthodox. When my grandfather admitted his Protestant roots, the priest kindly-yet-forcefully requested that my grandparents leave the church. To this day, my comprehens [...]

    4. This was assigned reading for a course I took in my undergrad, and I have read it almost annually since. I have referred back to it regularly for preaching and writing. It has been among the most formative books in terms of spiritual formation. While I am not Eastern Orthodox, reading this book opened my eyes to a freshness of beauty and mystery and wonder so badly needed in Western Protestantism. The presentation of the Orthodox spirituality which embraces mystery, beauty, meditation, and exper [...]

    5. An eye opening book that reveals historic Christianity in all its glory, before the Great Schism of 1054. Most in the West have little knowledge of the intricacies of the Faith (here always referred to simply as The Way, as it was called in the New Testament) of the ancient times because we have been so greatly impacted by the Schism. Protestantism is nothing more than a reaction to the claims of unilateral authority given to the Pope, yet this is not how the ancient Church functioned.It is not [...]

    6. This book is so accessible to people who want to learn more about Orthodoxy but are outside of the Orthodox tradition, like myself (a former evangelical, sometimes liturgical, though rarely church-attending Protestant).Above all things, the book gave me great hope. Over the past few years, I took a brief foray into the writing of "emergent church" thinkers like Brian McLaren, but always ended with this strange feeling that they were trying to reinvent the wheel. But at the same time, the popular [...]

    7. Without being a member, I've been studying Orthodoxy for a few years now, dipping into certain thinkers and texts--The Philokalia, namely or articles by Vincent Rossi or books by Philip Sherrard--and I find this book to be the best introduction to Orthodoxy that I've read. While it is not as linear and systematic as "Orthodox Dogmatic Theology," that is not its aim. Its aim, I feel, is to give the reader a more poetic and lived experience of Orthodoxy while presenting certain overriding Orthodox [...]

    8. كتاب "الطريق الارثوذكسى" هو كتاب يدعوك فيه الأب كاليستوس وير الى مصاحبته والسير معه فى رحلة ممتعة فى طريق الارثوذكسية ولن تكونا وحدكما بل سيصحبكما رفيقا ثالثا وهو الله نفسه. بعد كل فصل سيظهر لك روعة الارثوذكسية وجمال اللاهوت الشرقى فى فهم الله. كتاب قيم اشكر الله على تدبير قر [...]

    9. Metropolitan Kallistos Ware’s The Orthodox Way—a companion to his The Orthodox Church (1963), which, alas, I have not read yet—, is an introduction to the Orthodox faith, which explains the spiritual path offered by the Church. Although the book discusses about Church dogma, it doesn’t fall into dry expositions of abstract concepts, never losing sight of the consequences of theology for our spiritual life, for our prayer and for our relationship with our neighbor.

    10. The Orthodox Way by Bishop Kalistos(Timothy)Ware was recommended to me as a solid introduction to Orthodoxy. I haven't studied Orthodoxy much at all which is not good, considering the fact that I study Russia, where Orthodoxy is central to life. Ware asserts that Christianity is a path along which we journey. I love this idea. He further asserts that we must have companions and signposts(events to look back on) along the way. "Each of us is called to verify for himself what he has been taught an [...]

    11. Excellent, pastoral, overview. Steers clear of controversial doctrines and focuses on the spirituality of Orthodoxy.

    12. I read this book for the catechumen class at the Orthodox church that I attend. This book talks about the more mystical side of the Christian faith which is found in Orthodox Christianity.

    13. An excellent introduction to the Orthodox faith. I’ll definitely be delving further into the other texts quoted in here.I should add, I’m not from the Orthodox tradition. However much of it’s theology appeals and resonates deeply with me.—Tristan Sherwin, author of *Love: Expressed*

    14. This is an excellent book from Bishop Kallistos Ware. That being said, if you're considering reading this book, I would first recommend you read his classic book, "The Orthodox Church." "The Orthodox Way" is a well organized book and the chapter headings certainly help with this. What first caught my attention was the fact that Ware starts his book with a chapter called "God as Mystery." (The latter chapters are similarly titled, such as "God as Trinity" and "God as Man."). Starting with a discu [...]

    15. I really enjoyed this book. I have been interested in the teachings of the Orthodox church for some time. This is an introductory book, the author has written a much more extensive one elsewhere.I found this quite interesting though. He quotes many Orthodox writers, but also non-Orthodox writers. He intentionally doesn't take the time to argue with non-Orthodox Christians, but instead he presents what the Orthodox church teaches and believes. I found that I agreed with nearly all of it (only a c [...]

    16. .The way of fastidiousness!That's the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear the word "orthodox", anything orthodox, I think of "fastidious", which runs against everything "grace" is about and being "gracious". The Orthodox Way is the only way, my way or the high way! No way Jose! And I am the poet and I didn't know it! Kallistos Ware makes me queasy, with a capital "Q" as he sounds pompous in every way and I love for all theology to meet me at my own level, speak to my heart like a child [...]

    17. Great intro to an ancient and venerable tradition within Christianity. The west in general could learn something from Orthodox thought. Some of the differences may seem slight at first, but lead to a wholly different approach to theology. Students of Taoism may notice some parallels at the mystical level, especially in areas like the apophatic approach or hesychastic meditation. "You are a world within a world: look within yourself, and see there the whole of creation." St Nilus of Ancyra

    18. This book was a practical breakdown of complicated ideas; certain things were redundant (that might just be my filter), but one things I did really enjoy were the quotes from different people at the end of each chapter.

    19. I got this book primarily to learn, and I did learn quite a bit, but this book definitely made me think in a way that is not typical for an introduction. The author patiently explains the Eastern Christian tradition, going into the basics and using simple language. However, it is clear that he expects his readers to be quite familiar with the broader Western tradition, if not Western Christian tradition specifically. In more than one place, his entire point hinges on using the same Latin root wi [...]

    20. A must read for any Orthodox Christian, especially those born into the faith rather than converts. Also excellent read for Roman Catholics. This book is different than other books on orthodoxy, many of which are descriptive, tactical or historical. This book is ALIVE. It is SO GOOD. Excellent read for non-orthodox as well, although i wouldn't start with this one unless already well versed in basic Christian denominations. You just won't get as much out of it.

    21. Quite a helpful and succinct resource, though it reads a little dry and relies too much on quotes, in my opinion. I will probably revisit this in the future.

    22. Pretty goodThe book was pretty good. It kept things simple and straight to the point. A solid book for those interested in the Easter Orthodox understanding of God.

    23. What an absolutely incredible book. It made me think and wrestle with such important topics and came about from a new angle for me. Couldn’t recommend this book enough!

    24. Too much information to absorb in just one reading. A book I will go back to throughout my journey in Orthodoxy.

    25. "The Orthodox Way," by Bishop Kallistos Ware is the second most frequently recommended book on Eastern Orthodoxy in the English language to date, and the top book specifically on Orthodox Christian spirituality. (The number one book on Orthodoxy is his classic work, "The Orthodox Church," published under his given name, Timothy Ware.I first read an earlier edition of "The Orthodox Way" many years ago as an Evangelical Christian, shortly after I began looking into the Orthodox Church. At that tim [...]

    26. I loved this book because it described the Orthodox faith well.Certainly I do not agree with all of the teachings here; yet it gave me a firm understanding of what the Orthodox faith is. I began the study of the Orthodox faith when I entered a Greek church and asked the pastor there to help guide me into understanding where they get there beliefs from. He responded with a list of books - one being The Orthodox Way.The primary reason for studying this religion was an attempt to understand why som [...]

    27. I have been raised in a conservative evangelical household for my entire life and this was my first exposure to Eastern Orthodoxy. I really enjoyed the content presented, particularly because I have recently become interested in Christian mysticism. I cannot say that this book is in fact exemplary of mystical thought because I have not read enough to be capable of doing so, but from my understanding it seemed to have a deep-seated mysticism throughout its entirety. In my opinion, the approach ta [...]
