The book does a great job of comparing and contrasting the differences between Eastern and Western Christianity, as well as explores the Greek and Coptic foundations of Eastern Christian thinking. Comparing the theology to teachings of Socrates, the Stoics and others, the reader is able to get a good handle on the basics of Eastern Christianity through both comparison and lecture.
The book itself is partly a systematic theology text, so it isn't "easy reading", but it is GOOD reading. Worth picking up if you have interest in the subject.
