Awhile ago I purchased The Orthodox Church by Timothy Ware. Ware is known as Kallistos, the Metropolitan of Dioklia. He is the bishop of the Ecumenical Patriarch in Great Britain. As a layman he wrote this book and it has gone through a few revisions. It is a considered a high quality, easy introduction to the Orthodox branch of the Christian faith.
Is there anyone out there who has read this book? Anyone who is part of the Orthodox family who has any feelings about it? If so, do you consider it a fair introduction to Orthodoxy?
I ask because I read The Catholic Church by Hans Kung. I thought it was a valuable introduction to Roman Catholicism until a Catholic responded to my observations by saying that Kung hardly is a qualified representative of Catholicism and recommended a few other books. If you are Orthodox, and you feel this way about Ware, let me know who you think is a better representative (yet still readable).
