'The originality of this work lies in its comprehensiveness, taking into account as it does the East-West axis in ecclesiology. This is a brilliantly written book.' - Sven-Erik Brodd, Uppsala University, Sweden

Plus, Cyril Hovorun has a rare in academia quality to describe, analyze, and condense any particular school in a few paragraphs in a way that the reader will “get it.” All you need to know about Feminist Ecclesioologies – a page and a half. Postliberal Ecclesiologies (the Yale school) -- four pages. Moreover, at the beginning of the book even without Cyril’s explicit indication of his ecclesial affiliation, it would be pretty obvious; yet, it’s not the case from at least Chapter 5 ( Enlightenment) and to the end.
Nevertheless, the real treat comes in “Conclusion” and “After Conclusion.” I won’t touch “Conclusion” besides mentioning that finally the Eastern Orthodox have something decent to offer the rest of Christendom on Ecclesiology. If only they would agree with Cyril, the Ukrainian theologian of the day…
“After Conclusion” – a gift for someone who cannot figure out the worthy theme for Ph.D or Th.D…there are at least three of them on few pages: 1) phenomenological ecclesiology; 2) analytical (logocentric via early Wittgenstain through Derrida, Cixous, etc) ecclesiology; 3) Synthesis of the two.
Hovorun carefully forms complementary\binary propositions and just needs someone to take over these projects…
