About

"This book fills a practical need in contemporary Orthodox literature. The editor has selected some of the most important writers on Eastern Orthodoxy and assembled their relevant essays in one convenient location. Ideal for classroom use or personal enrichment."--Bradley Nassif, Balamand University

Theologians of the Eastern Orthodox Church celebrate and explain the nuances of their faith in Eastern Orthodox Theology, a collection of readings for those who wish to better understand key aspects of the Orthodox faith, such as liturgy and sacraments, tradition, the mystical encounter between person and God, and relations with other branches of the church.

This new edition includes all of the readings present in the first edtion, including articles by Vladimir Lossky, George Florovsky, and Alexander Schmemann. Two new articles have been added to update the section on Orthodoxy's relationship with the West: Articles from Timothy Weber (the only non-Orthodox contribution) and Bradley Nassif address the growing interface between the evangelical and Orthodox traditions.
