16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Owen Hatteras on July 27, 2009
Format: Paperback
This reviewer is a religious skeptic, but it is a testament to this book's character that it is a rewarding and thoughtful read, for believers and skeptics alike. When leafing through the book, the author's inviting and intelligent tone made it attractive, and so I purchased it.

The late Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh (who died in 2003) was head of the Russian Orthodox Patriarchal Church in Great Britain and Ireland, where he was considerably better known to the public than in the United States. This is to the loss of Christian churches in the United States, for when Metropolitan Anthony explains the concepts of religious faith, it is with plausibility and grace almost wholly lacking in the literature explaining and defending the Christian faith that is lately on tap in the U.S. His essays are entirely free of the usual threats, remonstrations, and blandishments; and he makes it a point to describe his faith in a intelligent way addressed to Orthodox and non-Orthodox (and non-believers) alike.

As alluded to before, the first chapter, "The Atheist and the Archbishop", a transcript of two discussions televised by the BBC in July 1970, is a model of clarity, intelligence, and civility by both discussants. If only current public dust-ups between Christians and atheists were half so fine! Here, the then-Archbishop (he attained the office of Metropolitan later) discusses religious faith with the late Marghanita Laski, a then-prominent British journalist and novelist (who died in 1988).

The Metropolitan explains that his faith is not mere credulity, but is based on a transforming experience of God--in this case, one he experienced in his teens.

11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Nicholas Dawson on March 1, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I almost gave this book four stars, but that wouldn't really do justice to the breathtaking insights it contains, nor the beautiful illustrations Metropolitan Anthony (Of Blessed Memory) uses to convey otherwise tedious and heavy theological concepts. There are places where some readers will find the discussion a little philosophically heavy (especially in the title essay), but not overwhelmingly so. Also, since this was written 40 years ago, one notices that the issues discussed may at first seem a little dated. And yet, everytime I started to feel this way, up would pop another beautiful insight that was absolutely timeless. This man of God, whose intellect and gentle grace touched many, does a fabulous job here of making hard-to-comprehend theological concepts meaninful - even life-transforming - to his readers. Strongly recommended to Orthodox Christian and non-Orthodox readers alike.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By E. Kharlamov on October 11, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is an example of fantastic compilation of discussions and articles explaining Christian faith simple and clear. The fact that those words come from one of the most interesting people in Russian orthodoxy, who was born abroad and lived most of his life in Europe, make these words even more important for the western reader. Metropolitan Anthony (Bloom) found his faith being an educated medical doctor. Therefore his words target modern educated people who are looking for the answers that can not be found anywhere but in a thousand years old tradition of the Eastern Orthodox Christianity.
