`As many universities begin to offer courses on the religious legacy of Byzantium ... one must welcome the publication of the first truly comprehensive work on the Byzantine Church in the English language by a seasoned Byzantinist ... The book does honour to the series.' Theological Studies `This excellent scholarly work, though written primarily for the non-specialist layman, will be invaluable to the undergraduate student and expert alike.' British Book News

The book is divided into a history section and a Organization and Life of the Church section. The history was as is described above. The Organization section was extremely tedious and I skimmed most of it. However, it might be invaluable to one who wants to know about administration of the Church.
Overall, an OK read. However, I recommend Myendorff's Theology of Byzantium over this, to get a better grasp on the doctrines and theology. Hussey's book though will give you more of the 'historical' facts though,so to speak, and less of the meaning of the beliefs.
