Hi! Welcome, buddy!If you want books:
That highlight the differences between Catholicism and Orthodoxy in a semi-polemic but insightful way, check out the writings of Fr. John S. Romanides. Patristic Dogmatics
might be good.
A general overview of Orthodoxy: The Orthodox Church
and/or the Orthodox Way
by Metropolitan Kallistos Ware.
For friendly, less theological convert stories and perspectives, check out works by Frederica Matthewes-Green like Facing East
If you would like to experience "high theology" and "high ecclesiology" from an Orthodox perspective, you might want to read a bit from the new Greek theologians like John Zizoulas's Being as Communion
If you're interested in the writings of recent Orthodox Elders, you might check out Wounded by Love: The Wisdom and Teaching of Elder Porphyrios
, which is actually the current OC.net bookclub book.If you want websites and podcasts, check out:
