reviewed by Robert W. Grano
The revised edition of a book first published in 1994, Eastern Orthodox Christianity is written as an introduction to Orthodoxy for Protestants by an Evangelical who came to know Orthodoxy during his time as a visiting professor of Christian studies at Moscow State University. He examines Orthodoxy in a mainly nonpolemical manner and hopes that the book “will contribute to a spirit of mutual respect, toleration, and even support.” For the most part he succeeds admirably.
