Product Description

Item No. 005734

by Fr. Edward Rommen

Fr Edward Rommen makes the case that it is now time to reexamine the theological underpinnings of the Eastern Orthodox Church’s mission to the world. Globalization has clearly altered the various fields on which missions are carried out. Christians in the West, to their credit, have been actively developing a missional response to these changes. As a result, missiology and missions theology are well established in the academic institutions of the West. However, the Orthodox Church has, in spite of its rich history of missionary activity, been notably absent from these discussions. But now this is changing.

As the constraints of political and religious oppression have eased, the Church is awakening to its own history, but more importantly to its own missionary responsibility. There has been a great deal of fresh activity among Orthodox scholars that can enrich our reexamination of the Church’s mission. So it is now indeed an opportune time to tap into the biblical, historical, and traditional resources of the Orthodox Church and attempt to reformulate a systematic, theological statement of the rationale and goal of mission, to reaffirm the centrality of the Church in missionary outreach, to describe for a new generation the nature of the gospel and the basic content of church education, and to rearticulate the guidelines that should govern our mission work.

This is a contribution to the field of mission that I have been looking forward to for a long time. Since the 1950s, missionaries and scholars—like Abp Anastasios (Yannoulatos)—have helped the contemporary Orthodox Church rediscover its rich two thousand year tradition of mission. Their work has detailed the historical periods of missionary work, articulated elements of an Orthodox theology of mission, and offered examples of how this practice of mission is lived out today. Fr Edward Rommen has produced a fine volume where he brings all these elements together in a holistic manner. —Rev. Luke A. Veronis, Director of the Missions Institute at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology
