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.
