"For the Life of the World: Toward a Social Ethos of the Orthodox Church" is, according to Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, "a mature and reasoned discourse about our engagement with the world and with each other for Orthodox Christians and all people of good will. This text offers to the reader, who is willing to listen, insight and guidance on how to participate in life in the world, while enjoying the life in the Spirit." It is a helpful roadmap--steeped in Orthodox wisdom--essential for navigating the many modern-day challenges we face.
