Overview

How can Orthodox Christians speak credibly about truth, in a society where relativism and tolerance hold sway and in a time when words like "dogma," "Authority," and even "Christian" are scorned? How can they proclaim their doctrines as true and saving, in an age when the historicity of biblical narratives is debated in headline news?

In Sweeter Than Honey, such questions comprise the backdrop to a wider discussion on how Orthodox Christians read the Bible, the church fathers, the liturgy, and the whole of tradition -a discussion grounded in Jesus Christ as "the way, the truth, and the life" (Jn 14.6) Readers will discover both unique points of Orthodoxy and resonance across confessional lines in this clearly presented study.

Meet the Author

Peter Bouteneff teaches courses in theology, patristics, and spirituality at the seminary, where he is Associate Professor in Systematic Theology and Director of Institutional Assessment. After taking a degree in music in 1983 he lived and worked in Japan, and traveled widely in Asia and Greece. He has an M.Div. from the seminary and a doctorate from Oxford University, where he studied under Bishop Kallistos Ware. He has worked for many years in theological dialogue, notably as Executive Secretary for Faith and Order at the World Council of Churches, and has written extensively on Orthodox relations with other churches. His theological interests include Christ, the Church, and the human person, but as a great fan of music and cinema he is also committed to exploring the connections between theology and popular culture, and regularly offers a course on religious themes in film. He conceived of and edits the popular "Foundations" series for SVS Press, to which he has contributed a volume on "dogma and truth" called Sweeter than Honey.
