Three Views on Eastern Orthodoxy and Evangelicalism.

Forward by J. I. Packer.

From the back cover; To some Western evangelicals, the practices of Eastern Orthodoxy seem mysterious and perhaps even unbiblical. Then again, from and Orthodox perspective, evangelicals lack the spiritual roots provided by centuries-old church traditions. Are the differences betwen these two branches of Christianity so sharp that to shake hands is to compromise the gospel itself? Or is ther room for agreement? Are Eastern Orthodoxy and evangelicalism at all compatible?

Yes, no, maybe - this book allows five leading authorities to present their different views, have them critiqued by their fellow authors, and respond to the critiques. Writing from an Orthodox perspective with a strong appreciation for evangelicalism, Bradley Nassif makes a case for compatibility. Michael Horton and Vladimir Bersonsky take the opposite stance from their respective evangelical and Orthodox backgrounds. And George Hancock-Stefan (evangelical) and Edward Rommen (Orthodox) each offer a qualified "perhaps".

This is one of a series of books called 'The Counterpoints Series', which provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians.

This book compares and contrasts the different positions of Orthodoxy and Evangelicalism to understand the stengths and weaknesses of these two important branches of Christianity and to help the reader form a personal conclusion regarding their compatibility.
