This Reader is a sampler of books and types of Orthodox writings that are “hidden.” Although foundational, everyday, Orthodox reading and currently available in English, these sources are hidden through unfamiliarity or, surprisingly, a seeming too much familiarity. Many are hidden away in expensive, scholarishly-intimidating, multi-volume sets of books. Other staples of Orthodox reading have only recently arrived in English. Certain others are avoided as though proscribed: for priests only. Those obscured by ostensible over-familiarity—the services, for example, with their expansive beauty and depth—are simply taken for granted and too often become burdensome obligation.
The works collected in this Reader provide an encouraging glimpse into and introduction to these “hidden”—though widely available—texts and sources. The various selections deal not so much with what Orthodox believe, but rather how Orthodox believe. They point toward a more Orthodox culture, world view, way of life. The book is for hungry Orthodox: lifelong church members who feel there must be more to Orthodoxy than they perceive on Sunday morning; converts who seek the “fullness” they were promised; and “reverts” who left the Church because of hunger but now hungrily return.
