Good afternoon,

I'm 15 years old, I'd really like to do some reading about the faith this summer, just to soak up as much knowledge as I possibly can. Does anyone have any suggestions in terms of Orthodox (or other Christian in general) books that they've enjoyed that I might want to take a look at?

Thanks!

Fr. Lawrence Farley has written some really good, basic texts.  You might want to check out some his books from the Orthodox Bible Study Companion series.  His introduction to the Divine Liturgy entitled "Let Us Attend" is really good, too.

Thanks for the suggestions! We've gone over most of Let Us Attend in Sunday School, but I'd love to take a look at more of his works Smiley Thanks again.

Another good book about the liturgy is "Living the Liturgy," by Fr. Stanley Harakas.  Smiley

Dear House,

I enjoyed this book: "Experiences During the Divine Liturgy"       
Protopresbyter Stephanos K. Anagnostopoulos

 It relates miracles linked to the Divine Liturgy. 

Love, elephant

And I added the tag to this thread, so you can just click at the bottom of the page if you like.

EDIT: I know you are not converting, but frankly a lot of the suggestions you are going to find probably ain't best for those looking to convert anyhow. There is a treasure trove of stuff in there with plenty of arguing and and that fun stuff.
