Book Review

“This remarkable collection of essays brings together a number of highly sophisticated reflections on two strands of contemporary theology that have only rarely been brought together for the purposes of sustained speculative reflection. The volume will be of great interest to scholars of Barth’s theology and of the Russian Orthodox tradition, as well as any theologian who still believes in the theological character of the ecumenical enterprise. As Kallistos Ware points out in his conclusion to the volume, the idea of sobornost, with its remarkable Trinitarian, ecclesiological, and anthropological implications, has yet to be discovered in its full theological import, which will clear the path for ever deeper mutual understandings between different ecclesial communities (pp. 339–341).”
