Beyond the East-West Divide

Co-Authored with Danish theologian Anna Marie Aagaard, this book explores issues in ecclesiology and ecumenism, with an emphasis on the theological and practical issues involved in Orthodox involvement in ecumenical institutions.

“By setting forth the Orthodox view with such candor, Bouteneff has identified the central issue facing the ecumenical movement today.” George Vandervelde, Calvin Theological Review


“Bouteneff’s contribution to this book is one of the clearest statements of Orthodox ecclesiology available today.”

Dn Stephen Hayes, International Journal for the Study of the Christian Church
