Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Martin I. Klauber
Clendenin has made a significant contribution by providing a fair and balanced view of Orthodoxy from an evangelical perspective. His analysis of Orthodoxy is by no means exhaustive, but he has contributed a helpful introduction that will undoubtedly lead to a better understanding between these two traditions.

    Great Overview

    As a Protestant who is interested in the broader universal church I found this book a great introduction to the world of Orthodoxy. The western church has a lot to learn from the East and acquainting ourselves with its history and theology is a must as a first step towards fulfilling the prayer for unity that Jesus prayed. I encourage all Christians who aren't familiar with Orthodoxy to read this book. And I encourage Orthodox readers to read the closing chapters on how we all might proceed forward together.
