Why do Orthodox Christians speak about 'heaven on earth'? How does the Orthodox Church interpret the Bible? What is a Byzantine floor mosaic doing in Canberra? And why would a church contain a labyrinth? Windows to Orthodoxy offers answers to these and other fascinating questions, but in a most distinctive way. Rarely are spiritual topics approached in a matter that is edifying yet, at the same time, easy to follow and entertaining. The breadth of topics covered in this impressive collection of essays is astounding. The content not only reflects the author's devotion to Orthodoxy as a Faculty member of St Andrew's Greek Orthodox Theological College in Sydney, but also his academic background as a university lecturer in the History and Philosophy of Science. He bridges both worlds superbly well.
