The life and work of Orthodox theologian and ecumenical pioneer Elisabeth Behr-Sigel (1907-2005) still holds radical implications for how we understand authentic Christian life. Born into a Lutheran and Jewish family and ordained in the Reformed tradition, Behr-Sigel converted to Orthodox Christianity and continued a lifetime of theological wrestling with the major questions and leading thinkers of her time. Immersed in the religious and social struggles of twentieth-century Europe, she dove deep into the tradition and saw clearly the relevance of Orthodox spirituality and theology for our turbulent age and Christian communion in the church. Here are featured the latest and best scholarship on the theological legacy of Behr-Sigel, her restless and searching spirit, her deep appreciation of the early church writers, her creative endurance of the assaults of wartime Europe, and her grappling with and championing of the ordination of women--all point to her relevance for today. *** "The spirit and legacy of Elisabeth Behr-Sigel reveal how the compelling voices, moral clarity and fierce agency of women have always been vital to the ecumenical journey and remain so. Though undeniably unique, she still lights the path for us today." --Fulata Lusungu Moyo, WCC *** "Sarah Hinlicky Wilson probes the new ways of understanding holy women and men, the new hagiography Elisabeth learned, in part, from the great emigre historian George Fedotov, but then developed creatively herself." --Michael Plekon, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Religion and Culture, Baruch College-CUNY, New York, and priest at St. Gregory the Theologian Church, Wappingers Falls, NY (Series: Doxa & Praxis) [Subject: Religious Studies, Christianity]
