God in Russia: The Challenge of Freedom
- Publish Date: 1999-11-23
- Binding: Hardcover
God in Russia is an extraordinary collection of articles written by Protestant and Orthodox writers, academics, and clergy. The book provides an in-depth look at the attitudes, values, and issues that divide Orthodoxy and Protestantism as they both seek to carry out Christian mission in what is generally considered to be Orthodox lands. While western Protestants often lack the understanding and cultural sensitivity necessary to operate effectively in Eastern Europe, many Orthodox leaders misinterpret the intentions of western Protestants because of their limited exposure to western missions. The articles in this book are aimed at clarifying the perspectives of the two groups so that they can understand each other's position and effectively work toward their common goal.
