Item description for Christianity After Communism: Social, Political, And Cultural Struggle In Russia by Niels Christian Jr. Nielsen...
Overview "The authors share the assumption that post-communist society faces uncertainty and that religion will be called upon to provide answers to many questions of a social and political kind".--Michael Pye, Lancaster University.
Publishers Description Specialists from Europe and the US investigate the current and changing role of religion in post-communist Russia. Drawing upon Eastern Orthodox, Protestant and Roman Catholic points of view, they examine the Russian religious attitudes, activities and institutions, and explore the ways in which religion will significantly impact emerging social and political questions there. The volume should be of use to scholars of Russian politics, society, and religion and for anyone interested in the emerging culture of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

Time and Money well spent. Oct 13, 2009
This is a wonderful book, clearly written and easy to follow. Open and concise discussion from religious leaders and experts. I could not put it down. Provided insights into current and past challanges of the Russian Chrisitan movement. If you want to understand some of hold backs to the progress of christian growth in Russia this book will help you. I gave my new copy away as soon as I finished it. I have purchased another copy for my library, and plan to buy more for friends. God Bless.
