The Orthodox Churches in a Pluralistic World

An Ecumenical Conversation

Edited by: Emmanuel Clapsis

Churches seek to supply their people with pastoral support and theological insight, even when the community's self-understanding is evolving in the midst of a pluralistic environment. This anthology explores various ways in which churches of the Orthodox tradition are meeting the challenges of a post-modern world. The authors' presentations identify contemporary opportunities for Christian witness, promoting ministries of healing and renewal within a diverse society. Interesting topics, such as, cultural identity and ethnic conflict, globalization and human rights, violence, forgiveness and reconciliation, world mission and spirituality, are discussed.
