God, Man and the Church

By Vladimir Solovyev

ISBN: 9780227676905

“[…] Solovyev disentangled essential Orthodoxy from Slavophilism and developed a critique of the social order of the age of Alexander III, basing his arguments on the Bible and tradition. He thus offers an alternative both to Tsarist reaction and to socialist revolution…we can be grateful that it is available again in this reprint of Donald Attwater’s English translation of 1937.”

The Real Church

An Ecclesiology of the Visible

By Harald Hegstad

ISBN: 9780227174098

“[…] this book, is something that is often lacking in contemporary studies of the Church: a union of systematic theology and empirical research. This would be a very good book, therefore, to put into the hands of those curates I met who are about to undertake a study of their local church as part of their training.”

They Who Give From Evil

The Response of the Eastern Church to Moneylending in the Early Christian Era

by Brenda Llewellyn Ihssen

ISBN: 9780227173985

“As a work in patristics, Ihssen’s monograph completes necessary spadework about one aspect of the social teaching of two major Eastern church thinkers. As a guide to social response for Christians today, Ihssen makes a further down-payment on a valuable and difficult project—to discover what sort of economy a self-consciously Christian civilization barely free of the era of the New Testament church did adopt or cerate once free of persecution.”

Richard Hooker and the Vision of God
Exploring the Origins of ‘Anglicanism’


B
y Charles Miller
ISBN: 9780227174005

“… [Miller] proves his case that Hooker has much to teach us today. Hooker challenges a relativistic approach, relates theology and spirituality, certainly challenges the church to recover confidence in its worship, and shows how to conduct a religious controversy! Miller wryly comments that the name Hooker is more honoured than read; let us hope that this book is read.”
