"Orthodox Christians in America
breaks new scholarly ground.... Should prove invaluable to scholars seeking to build on [Erickson's] work."--Harvard Divinity Bulletin
"John Erickson's book not only introduces [Orthodox Christianity] in a lucid and interesting manner, but provides the reader with enough insight and basic knowledge that you are left wanting to know more. Ample illustrations appropriately support the text and the periodic presentations of first person narratives make the experiences of Orthodox Christians vibrant and real.... I highly recommend this book for both teachers, students, and for inclusion in school libraries. Lucidly written and highly informative, [it] is an excellent introduction to this group of Americans whose religiosity has been largely hidden from public view."--Religious Studies in Secondary Schools
