Synopsis: This collection, a personalist exploration of the sources of the Christian East, yields a number of insights useful in grappling with some of the pressing issues confronting today's world. Historical matters to personalist concerns, such as human sexuality, marriage, and feminism are among the broad spectrum of topics covered. An Eastern Catholic appreciation of the life work of two esteemed Orthodox theologians, Alexander Schemann and John Meyendorff, is offered. In the concluding section, devoted to Russian religious philosophy, Professor Slesinski reveals this rich tradition to be a particularly viable resource for coping with the challenges of our own time.

About the Author: The Author: Robert Slesinski is Adjunct Professor of Russian Philosophy at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania. He earned his doctorate in philosophy at the Gregorian University, Rome. The author of Pavel Florensky: A Metaphysics of Love, as well as numerous articles on Russian religious philosophy and other topics, Professor Slesinski also serves as a consulting editor to the journals Communio and Diakonia. An Eastern Catholic pastor, he is active in ecumenical research and projects at many levels.
