A penetrating discussion between "The Atheist and the Archbishop" - Anthony Bloom's famous television discussion with Marghanita Laski - on the essence of Christian faith and life opens this book of five selections.
Frederica asks this provocative question as she takes us on a journey through her early years as a feminist, a conversion experience to Christianity, and the realization that men and women are unique yet equal.
This is the first book to provide an affordable translation of the major doctrinal poems of St. Gregory of Nazianzus. Included are poems on the Trinity, Creation and Providence, Angels and the Soul, the Person of Christ, Human Nature and poems debating the Christian understanding of marriage and virginity.
The author states that "freedom carries with it the ultimate possibility of taking precisely this risk: that man should deny his own existential truth and authenticity, and alienate and distort his existence, his being." Morality reveals what man is in principle, as the image of God, but also what he becomes through the adventure of his freedom: a being transformed, or "in the likeness of God."
The voice of John Zizioulas may turn out to be the fresh voice for which theology and especially ecclesiology have long been waiting. In the context of a complete theology, which includes extended consideration of the major theological topics - the Trinity, Christology, eschatology, ministry, and sacrament, but above all, the Eucharist - the author propounds a fresh understanding, based on the early Fathers and the Orthodox tradition, of the concept of person, and so of the Church itself.
His consideration of the local church as "catholic" in the literal sense, and the need to understand the universal Church, not as a superstructure but as the communion of all Churches, provides the program for the ecclesiology of the future.
Yves Congar has written that he considers the author to be "one of the most original and profound theologians of our epoch" and that he "presents a penetrating and coherent reading of the tradition of the Greek Fathers."
John Zizioulas is Metropolitan of Pergamon, in the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.
Being as Communion is part of the CONTEMPORARY GREEK THEOLOGIANS SERIES.
