Description

This unique book seeks to unravel - through extracts from ten years of one man's writings - where God seems to want to take His Church, in particular in its Orthodox form, and to ask whether or not we are following. Michael Lomax entered the Russian Orthodox Church (where he now serves as a deacon) as a 'westerner' with wide experience of Protestant and Roman Catholic theology and practice, and a deep knowledge of European cultural history.

Drawing on this particular perspective, his writings chart a personal quest to establish a mature basis of faith for critical Orthodox Christians who are increasingly distancing themselves from a seemingly outdated, male-dominated and 'toe-the-party-line' structure. Concerns explored in the book include: the adequacy of the Orthodox teaching, structure and mindset in today's world; the relevance of the emigre Orthodox heritage; the inter-relationship of religious and political belief; the relevance of the ecumenical endeavour; and 'traditional' versus 'new' morality.
