We should thank St. Vladimir's Seminary Press for this one. This book will help dispel the myth that the Eastern Orthodox Church needs to be dusted off for practical use in modern society. Each chapter stands on its own, although they all relate to Orthodoxy and modern society. I would argue that Ware's essay on the meaning of Lent and its relevance to our consumer society is worth the price alone. Twelve distinguished lay and ordained Orthodox writers are assembled here. Topics include: 1) The Orthodox Vision of Wholeness, by Gillian Crow. 2) Living in the Future, by Bishop Basil of Sergievo. 3) The Eschata in Our Daily Life, by Metropolitan Athanasios of Hercegovina. 4) Orthodox Tradition and Family Life, by Sister Magdalen. 5) Lent and the Consumer Society, by Bishop Kallistos (Ware) of Diokleia. 6) Death and Bereavement, by Bishop Anthony (Bloom) of Sourozh. 7) An Orthodox Approach to Bioethics, by Prof. H. Tristram Engelhardt Jr. 8)Orthodoxy and Modern Depth Psychology, by Dr. Jamie Moran. 9) Orthodoxy and Art, by Dr. Andrew Louth. 10) Man the Priest of Creation: A Response to the Ecological Problem, by Metropolitan John (Zizioulas) of Pergamon. 11) The Holy Trinity, the Church and Politics in a Secular World, by Costa Carras. 12) The Prophetic Role of Orthodoxy in Contemporary Culture, by Dr. Andrew Walker. Envoi: The Laos of God, by Metropolitan Anthony. Notes.
If you are interested in Orthodoxy and Culture, you'll love this book! In fact, many of the chapters are so illuminating that I'd buy the book just for one or two of them. Enjoy!

This book edited by Andrew Walker and Costa Carras (they both contribute a chapter each as well) is great for personal thoughts about livingas an Orthodox Christian in the modern world or for such things as Bible study groups, or Sunday School.
I used this book last year for my youth sunday school group. While much of this material, if read alone, may be over the head of most young people, I used the chapter titles and articles to involve discussion. Further, it helped them 'think beyond their years.'
Each essay does stand on its own, but equally, they complete the picture when the book is completely fimsihed. The wonderful thing about Orthodoxy is that it has, and always will be, religion devoted to the entire person and these chapters bare this out. Ideas such as art, bioethics, and bereavement (just to name a few) are all discussed in the normal uncompromising, yet patoral approach which Orthodoxy is known for among Orthodox. This is also a great book to introduce others to, not so much what we believe, but how we view certian impacting issues.
