A State of the Union and Disunion Survey Jan 3, 2003
This book comes out of work and discussions being carried on between Evangelical and Orthodox believers in the UK. As such, it reads like an overview of issues meant to be a guide for directing further conversations. One thus does not find a deep and sustained handling of the issues, but a survey of key areas in the Christians faith, showing where the two groups involved find consonance and caution. By the end, you have a clear understanding that there are large areas of belief and practice that they share as part of the Great Tradition, but there are also some pretty significant ways the two groups can diverge. Most interesting is where the author takes what looks like a disagreement and shows that Evangelicals and the Orthodox may be closer to each other than they might normally assume. With the growing interest in Orthodoxy among Protestants, particularly in North America, this is a good orientation to what can be, on first encounter, a very confusing terrain.
