Today, thirst for authentic spirituality attracts new interest in the Byzantine tradition's taste for beauty, science of prayer, and emphasis on the quest for holiness. About the author:  Fr. John Anthony McGuckin is a priest of the Romanian Church and is a professor of Early Church History at Union Theological Seminary and professor of Byzantine Christian Studies at Columbia University in New York. He is a graduate of the University of London and holds a doctorate from the University of Durham. He is the author of numerous books and articles in scholarly journals.
