For those like myself who are coming to Orthodoxy from a Protestant background, I also highly recommend Daniel B. Clendenin's book Eastern Orthodox Christianity: A Western Perspective
After going through this thread again, I decided to order the book above, since it sounds like it may be a little easier for me to understand. Looking forward to reading it! After that I think I will take on the other one mentioned, "The Faith: Understanding Orthodox Christianity, An Orthodox Catechism" as well.
This was also a really good book. Ware's book was much more in-depth of course, and written from a Protestant's perspective, but I feel it was a nice entry level book.
