it was amazing
bookshelves: orthodox-christianity

Here you will learn what Christians have thought and taught about Mary for the last 2000 years. The Orthodox Church has preserved the memory of Mary and her story beyond what appears in scripture in its liturgical life and traditions, and now has rediscovered the original writings. The introduction is enlightening and very well done, as is the translation, and the inclusion of the Akathist Hymn to the Theotokos fleshes this work out very well. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about what the original Orthodox Christian church thought and taught about Mary, the Mother of Christ our God.

David Galloway I'll have to give this a read. I've enjoyed Facing East and At the Corner of East and Now but I haven't read her book on the Fathers or this one.
