By: John D. Zizioulas, Metropolitan of Pergamon
Editor: Gregory Edwards

Zizioulas’ studies in this book provide a comprehensive outlook on the essential issues, demonstrating that the Church is a living organism. Being the bishop of the martyric and apocalyptic Church of Pergamon, Zizioulas is aware of the fact that history is in the sign of the Cross and that the power of the Church is “made perfect in weakness” (2 Cor. 12:9). We should express our deep respect and great satisfaction for Metropolitan John’s collection of papers on these important subjects, such as the testimony of the Church ad extra. His many years of invaluable contributions in researching, writing, and representing the Orthodox Church in various dialogues with other Christians (and non-Christians) and participating in symposiums throughout the world have led him to a clearer vision of the challenges of the contemporary world, “always being ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3:15).
