Contributions by: Pantelis Kalaitzidis

In this inaugural volume of the Doxa & Praxis series, esteemed theologian Metropolitan Kallistos Ware examines the future questions and concerns that await Orthodox Christianity and its theological reflection. Long-renowned for the depth of his theological, historical, and ecclesial work, Metropolitan Kallistos Ware maintains that recent Orthodox preoccupation with the church will give way to theological engagement with what it means to be human. In that anthropological endeavor, he argues that Christian theology has steep challenges to meet - but also crucial insights to offer - for illuminating the human condition. [In light of the current challenges faced by global Christianity, the Doxa & Praxis series - a collaborative effort of the Volos Academy and World Council of Churches Publications - invites creative and original reflection that reappraises, reappropriates, and further develops the riches of Orthodox thought for a deep renewal of Orthodox Christianity and for the benefit of the whole oikoumene.] (Series: Doxa & Praxis)
