Well... I'm afraid I have to disagree. While the Liturgy certainly can assist in teaching us a great deal about Orthodoxy, it is by no means exclusive. There are many fine books which help explain the sacraments, the history behind many traditions, the problems converts will inevitably face and so forth. CD's giving the hymnology of the Church are also beneficial. Then there are the Orthodox broadcasts such as Come Receive the Light.

I entered the Church some thirteen years ago after spending a month in Russia and I can say with a certainty that several books were crucial in my eventually converting to Orthodox Christianity, not the least among them being the Orthodox Church by Bp Kallistos.

I fear you are taking a very simplistic approach to this but that is for you to discover and I am in no position to be your judge. I will, however, caution you about presenting this simplistic notion in a folder designed for Converts/Seekers.

For those reading this thread who might appreciate a good reading list, please respond and I (and I'm sure many others) will supply you with what was most helpful to me (and to my wife who joined me a few years later).

Glory to Jesus Christ!
