I have not read it, but it sounds interesting. I wonder how it would compare with Bishop Kallistos Ware's works?

It is a wonderful book - I have just received my copy and am reading through it slowly... From the little I have seen, I can say that it is well written I look forward to sharing my thought about it when i am done.
