In Elements of Faith, Christos Yannaras introduces the Western mind to some of the distinctive features of the Orthodox tradition. Not only does he review classical theological questions, but he also analyzes the divisions between the Orthodox mind and Western ways of thinking. Often his discussions lead to vigorous but constructive challenges to Western theology. The outcome is a clearer understanding of both Orthodox and Western theology. This book encapsulates the full range of Yannaras’ best work in a lucid and accessible form.
