Item description for Prayers from the East: Traditions of Eastern Christianity by Richard Marsh...

Come, celebrate Eastern Christian spirituality by perusing this fine collection of individual intercessions and corporate liturgies drawn from Egyptian Coptic, Armenian, Syrian, Indian Malankara, Ethiopian, and Eritrean sources. Helps revitalize our stale and overly familiar language.

Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prayers from the East: Traditions of Eastern Christianity?

Good stuff...literally  Oct 17, 2006
Eye-opening to the eastern traditions and very well put together. This book has some of the most eloquent prayers I've ever heard. Definitely worth the read.
Through Prayer  Dec 7, 2004
If one wants to enter into the heart of a religion such as Eastern Orthodoxy, it is best accomplished through the prayers and worship of the faithful. This readable collection of prayers helps the reader pray their way into the heart of the faith. Well done.

If you have an interest in the Oriental Orthodox Church and how it relates the Christianity at large- Orthodox, Roman, Protestant, I would suggest the useful book "Christ in East and West" edited by Fries and Nersoyen.
