Written by an evangelical Protestant largely for Protestants, this is one of the clearest, most sympathetic descriptions of Orthodox Christianity in print. ''Let all that you do be done in love'' was obviously the theological dictum that motivated this study, and the fairness and accuracy that resulted are an example for us all.
An Eighth Day View:
In this reliable and engaging survey, Daniel Clendenin introduces Protestants to Eastern Orthodox history and theology with the hope that the two groups will come to see their traditions as complementary and learn to approach one another with a "hermeneutic of love" that fosters "mutual respect, toleration, and even support."
This revised edition includes a new preface, a new chapter, and an updated bibliography. In addition to updated demographic information, Clendenin examines at length a particular aspect of Orthodoxy's intersection with Protestantism-its growing exchange with evangelicalism.
