In recent years, Eastern Orthodoxy has gained prominence amidst the numerous churches of the West. Hitherto, it has gone largely unnoticed in American religious culture. Noting how the Orthodox Christian Church has thrived among the many nations and cultures throughout the east, Robert Letham examines both the history and theology of the Eastern Church in order to find where the differences truly lie between the East and the West. Examining the Orthodox Church from a Reformed perspective, Letham outlines clear and significant areas of agreement between the two, while noting deep misunderstandings each side innacurately holds toward one another. In drawing attention to these agreements and misunderstandings, Letham believes that readers will come to a better understanding of the true differences between the Christian East and the Reformed tradition in the West.
