A comprehensive study of Eastern Orthodoxy - its historical development and theology - The Orthodox Church is also an engaging assessment of Orthodoxy's political role in today's secularized Western world. By tracing Orthodoxy's roots in Christian antiquity - and the formation of its biblical, doctrinal, and spiritual culture - the book explores and explains the riches of Eastern Christian traditions. Scholarly, timely, and always thought-provoking, The Orthodox Church provides Orthodoxy with the long-awaited voice to engage in a meaningful dialogue with contemporary Western culture.
Written by one of the leading Orthodox theologians in the English-speaking world, The Orthodox Church: An Introduction to its History, Doctrine, and Spiritual Culture will unlock the deep mysteries of Eastern Christianity to Westerners.
