Reviews - What do customers think about The Heart of Orthodox Mystery?

Important messages for Orthodox Christians  Jul 30, 2004
William Bush, a convert to Orthodox Christianity from the Protestant tradition, has prepared a thoughtful and provocative book that every Orthodox Christian should read. Besides its value for meditation and reflection on the treasures of Orthodox spirituality and worship, he says things that so-called 'traditional' Orthodox people should pay attention to. In particular, Mr. Bush is quite right to point out that membership in the Body of Christ cannot be reduced to a tribal birthright, and the sacraments of the Church are not tribal customs. He rightly denounces how 'Orthodox Christianity's rich truths become the pawn in a demonic game of the politics of ethnic pride.' This is idolatry, not Christianity.

A point of secondary importance is his criticism of the pews that unfortunately mar Orthodox worship in too many parishes in America and that turn participants of divine life into audience members. Mr. Bush is absolutely right that Orthodox Christians should stand for worship, unless infirm or ill, and should also hear the so-called 'secret prayers' that have been suppressed from general hearing. But he doesn't go far enough on this theme, as evidenced by his typical description of the liturgical responses sung by 'the choir.' Excuse me, but the liturgy belongs on the lips of the people, and the choir's sole purpose is to help that reality happen.

Overall, a most useful book, highly recommended especially for Lenten reading.
