The recent interest in Eastern Orthodox Christianity (with a number of prominent converts) has placed Orthodox Christians in the position of innocent bystanders in battles between Roman Catholic and Protestant apologists. Often mischaracterized by both sides as "Catholics without a pope", the uniqueness of Orthodox theology has often been overlooked. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the doctrine of salvation where arguments that have raged for centuries in the Western Churches seem alien territory to Christians of the East. 
Barbara Pappas has produced a succinct little introduction to the Orthodox understanding of salvation in the little booklet Are You Saved? Intended as catechetical material, Pappas seeks to help Orthodox Christians respond effectively to Evangelical challenges to their faith. This booklet is a guide for the Orthodox faithful to communicate in a manner that Evangelicals could find intelligible - even if they vehemently disagree. There is also an added purpose for Pappas as Orthodox Christians in the West who use the Christian media may be unsure of the Orthodox position on issues emphasized by Evangelicals (e.g., the common Evangelical doctrine "once saved, always saved"). While this work is not comprehensive, it is an ideal introductory exposition of the Orthodox doctrine of salvation.
The main part of the booklet is divided into three chapters covering the plan of God, the meaning of salvation, and how we are saved. Each begins with a print of an icon (with a short description and appropriate excerpt from Orthodox liturgical texts), follows with an exposition of the topic and concludes with excerpts from the Church Fathers supporting the exegesis.

First off, it is important for the readers of this review to note that I am not Orthodox, and don't fully subscribe to the theology of the book. Having gotten that disclosure out up front, I would say that this small gem provides the reader with a very approachable, very profound and very understandable view of Orthodox theology on the concept of salvation.

The Orthodox view that salvation is a combination of works and grace, and is a process undertaken by the imperfect man rather than a pronouncement and guarantee is clearly stated and positioned with both tradition (through quotes and analysis by Church fathers) and scripture. The position of the Orthodox Church is that we must believe, prove that belief, face judgment and receive our rewards or punishment in light of our call to theosis.

A good book, and easy to read but profound book, and one that will provide the Orthodox reader or those interested in Orthodox theology insight into Christian salvation through the Orthodox lens.
