By: John D. Zizioulas, Metropolitan of Pergamon

In this book, Metropolitan John of Pergamon traces the varying approaches to truth in the Patristic era, focusing mainly on its relationship to history. The challenge for the Fathers was to find a way of expressing the ontological character of truth in a way that did justice to the specific revelation of God in Christ. The challenge that the early Church had to grapple with, which Zizioulas discusses in this book, is how we are to hold “at one and the same time to the historical nature of truth and the presence of ultimate truth here and now.” Metropolitan John suggests that the idea of communion was a compelling tool that enabled the Greek Fathers to respond to this challenge.
