The talks gathered in this volume open our eyes to the vast common ground that exists between the Orthodox Church and those of African heritage. The huge role Alexandria and the Egyptian Church played in ancient Christianity, the African origin of the Desert Fathers and of monasticism generally, the many parallels in the mindset of Orthodoxy and the ascetical tradition with that of African-American religion -- all of this points to the natural convergence between two realms of experience not often considered together. Contributors include Fr. Moses Berry, Nun Catherine Weston, Princeton Professor Albert Raboteau, Fr. Damascene Christiansen (Not of This World: The Life and Teachings of Fr. Seraphim Rose), and others, whose various offerings ranging from historical survey to personal testimony convey an important new dimension of the growth of Orthodoxy in America.
