How should Orthodox Christians regard non-Christian religions? To treat this question, John Garvey provides a concise introduction to great religious traditions, East and West, and goes on to explore how seeds of truth may be found in them, while upholding the Orthodox Church s claim as the unique repository of the Christian tradition and the ark of salvation. "This book offers a solid introduction to interfaith relations, in which encounters among diverse faiths offer both challenges to peaceful coexistence and opportunities for fruitful exchange." -Dr Antonios Kireopoulos, Associate General Secretary for International Affairs and Peace, NCCC

Book Description St. Vladimirs Seminary Press April 2006, 2006. Paper Back. Condition: New. Seldom is seen an Orthodox perspective on the study of comparative religion. The copy in hand by John Garvey, an Orthodox priest and regular columnist for the journal Commonweal, is at the same time unmistakably Orthodox in its representation of the Orthodox Church as the fullness of Christian truth and authentically respectful toward the mutual learning and transformation that can be gained through the study of God's truth found in faiths that do not share a belief in Christ. Garvey begins with a concise introduction to the major (and not so major) religions of the world including Judaism, Islam, Baha'i, the Sikhs, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and a brief discussion on the different strands of Chinese religion (primarily Taoism and Confucianism). He then turns to the way the Orthodox Church has encountered these religions throughout history and into the present day, examining modern Orthodox approaches to mission work and inter-religious dialogue and highlighting the more relevant and useful points for interfaith discussion within each religion. In conclusion, Garvey examines how other Christians have explored the question of dialogue including the Total Replacement, Partial Replacement, Fulfillment, Mutuality, and Acceptance models. The short and long of it is-we recommend Garvey's study as an intellectually and compassionately balanced approach to the difficult topic of interfaith discourse and as a help toward the Christian embodiment of both love and truth.
