More Spirited Than Lions

£9.99

Product description

Orthodoxy is considered to be "the best kept secret in America." It is the fastest-growing church in the United States. The beauty of Her services, the longevity of Her Tradition, Her position as the original Church, founded by our Lord Jesus Christ, are all highly attractive to world-weary Westerners looking for depth and spiritual validity. And yet this very Church now finds herself in a similar position in regards to feminism as the Catholic and Episcopalian churches once were. Inroads have already been made concerning liturgical language while dialogue is being encouraged regarding "women's role in the church, " especially in the question of women's ordination.

How the Church answers this challenge, the decisions that will be made on all levels -- personal, parish, diocese, national and international -- will effect the life of the Church, spiritually and practically, for generations to come.

At this critical juncture comes a critical book: an examination of feminism from an Orthodox perspective. Based on years of research, More Spirited Than Lions traces the historical development of feminism, outlines its basic assumptions and beliefs, assesses its contributions, and offers an Orthodox critique to the feminist platform. Most importantly, it offers thoughts for an alternative approach, namely the ideal of Christian womanhood, as found in the Tradition of the Church.

CONDITION: Sun fading to top edge of front cover and spine otherwise a clean copy with no inscriptions or notations.
