Editorial Reviews

Fr. Thomas Hopko
This splendid translation of Elisabeth Behr-Sigel’s essays on issues related to the ministry of women in the church is a cause of joy and gratitude for English-speaking people interested in orthodox Christianity. If the present volume did nothing more than to widen and deepen discussion among the Orthodox concerning the community and ministry of women and men in the church, this alone would be sufficient reason to offer its author our greatest gratitude.
Metropolitan Anthony Sourozh
With great joy, I recommend this book to all serious readers, to those who are ready to put aside their prejudices. May it be the first swallow that announces the coming of spring.
