The liturgical year of the Orthodox Church is more than a calendar. It is more than pious teaching or beautiful poetry. Woven through its cycles of fasts and feasts is Christ Himself, manifested in the lives of His saints and the events of His life. Participation in this life ''forms Christ in us, from his birth to the full stature of the perfect man.'' Clearly organized by section according to the major seasons of the Church )Advent, Christmas and Epiphany, Lent, the Passion, Easter and Pentecost) and including historical and theological reference notes at the end of each chapter, The Year of Grace of the Lord
both instructs those unfamiliar with the liturgy of the Orthodox Church and gives a devotional light to those entering into its work on a daily basis. 254 pp.
