Orthodox Christianity reveals the unbroken truth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ from the time of Pentecost to the new millennium and beyond. Orthodoxy is increasingly valued among Christians for its depth of spirituality and theology, its commitment to prayer, and the beauty of its liturgy. But the Orthodox Church’s reputation for clinging to tradition often gives the impression that it has no message for contemporary society.
This book brings together twelve lay and ordained Orthodox writers, who provide profound and fascinating insights into the role and mission of the Church in today’s world. While prayer and worship are considered the highest callings of all believers, the issues covered here range far more widely, including family life and bereavement, ecology and consumerism, politics, medical ethics and psychology.
