One of the most ancient names for Christianity is simply “the Way”. “About that time”, it is said in the Acts of the Apostles, “there rose no little stir concerning the Way” (19:23); Felix, the Roman governor of Caesarea, had “a rather accurate knowledge of the Way” (24:22). It is a name that emphasizes the practical character of the Christian faith. Christianity is more than a theory about the universe, more than teachings written down on paper; it is a path along which we journey—in the deepest and richest sense, the way of life.

— Kallistos Ware, The Orthodox Way (Revised edition) (s. 7-8)
