Catechisms are familiar devotional and educational guides for many Catholic and Protestant Christians, but they’re also very important in Eastern churches. This work, simply entitled A Catechism, explains how Eastern Orthodox Christians understand the Nicene Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Beatitudes. It also includes brief explanations of hymnody, architecture, and iconography in the Orthodox Church. Consisting of three parts, A Catechism covers basic dogma, worship and sacraments, and essential Christian morality. Now over 100 years old, this catechism remains an important work explaining the basics of the Greek Orthodox faith with uncommon clarity.
