Excellent companion to Daniel B. Clendenin's other book about Orthodoxy - "Eastern Orthodox Christianity: A Western Perspective."

This book in comparison to its companion, is a compilation of contemporary Orthodox theologians' writings on such topics as:

* liturgy and sacraments,

* tradition,

* the mystical encounter between person and God, and

* relations with the other branches of the church.

One will be pleasantly surprised to read biographical information on theologians such as Kallistos Ware, Vladimir Lossky, Alexander Schmemann and others and also read their thoughts on Orthodox living theology.

This book is written for all Christians, but primarily for Protestants and Eastern Orthodox believers. Enjoy!

Excellent work. Some of the 'newer' Orthodox theologians provide great perspectives. Ware, Ouspensky, Meyendorff, Schmemann, and Lossky (among others) are incredible scholars. As a contemporary reader, the book faithfully depicts timeless truths of the faith, grounded in the Father, but willing to dialogue with other Christian traditions, especially Catholicism. I would highly recommend it to both the armchair theologian and to the scholar as a practical compilation of orthodox theological thought.

Very informative and interesting book. The history included sheds light on this very old Christian religion. I haven't completed it yet but so far it is a very impressive and educational book.
