Within these pages a younger generation of Orthodox scholars in America takes up the perennial task of transmitting the meaning of Christianity to a particular time and culture. This collection of twelve essays, as the title Thinking Through Faith implies, is the result of six years of reflective conversation and collaboration regarding core beliefs of the Orthodox faith, tenets that the authors present from fresh perspectives that appeal to reason and spiritual sensibilities alike.
The titles of the essays are:
The Kingdom of God: Paul and the Apostle's Perilous Proclamation
The Foundations of Noetic Prayer
What Are We Doing Talking About God? The Discipline of Theology
Understanding Pastoral Care in the Early Church
Orthodox Theologies of Women and Ordained Ministry
Reading the Lives of the Saints
The Meaning and Place of Death in an Orthodox Ethical Framework
Honest to God:Confession and Desire
International Religious Freedom and the Challenge of Proselytism
Four Types of Orthopraxy among Orthodox Christians in America
Byzantine Liturgy as God's Family at Prayer
Learning About Ourselves:A Snapshot of the Orthodox Church in the Twenty-first Century.
