Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Roberts, a British writer of Russian affairs, and Shukman, a priest and teacher of Russian, have done Western Christians a great service by making available a translation of some of the writings about the contemporary Christian life and the Russian Christian experience of Russian Orthodox priest Men. Born in 1935, ordained in 1960, and murdered (no doubt for political motivations) in 1990, Men experienced various forms of religious oppression. His essay "Christianity: The Universal Vision" discusses how Christian truth builds on truths found in other religious traditions, while "Religion, the `Cult of Personality' and the Secular State" engages in intense analysis of Russian culture and what led to Christianity's collapse in that country. Men combines global and Russian perspectives, while providing perceptive insights into late 20th-century Christianity. Highly recommended not only for contemporary Christians but also for Russian politics collections.Carolyn M. Craft, Longwood Coll., Farmville, Va.
