Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0917651979, Paperback)

Traces the development of the liturgical celebration of the Passion and Resurrection of Christ in the Greek Orthodox Church. Fr. Calivas elegantly describes the theological themes for each day, clarifies the liturgical practices, and provides rubrics for their proper celebration. Through the text the reader can find answers to many questions about Holy Week as well as insights into meaningful participation in each of the services. According to Fr. Calivas, "Everything converges on the person of Jesus Christ, who was betrayed, crucified and buried, and who rose on the third day. These events are the keystones to the structure of Great Week. Through them we embrace the mystery of our salvation."
