Endorsements & Reviews-

"Dr. Stamoolis has provided an extremely important service for the budding discipline of Orthodox missiology in this country. He has provided us with the first comprehensive survey of Orthodox mission theology, history and problematics. Anyone interested in the development of mission thought and, in particular, Eastern Christian missions, will want to read this work with care. I believe it will remain a standard work in the field for a long time to come."

Stanley Harakas, Professor of Christian Ethics,
Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology
Boston, Massachusetts

"This study is a valuable survey of the principles and insights which penetrate the missionary efforts and thought of the Orthodox Church; it is a first attempt on this subject, made with diligence, clarity and missionary sensitivity."

Bishop Anastasios Yannoulatos, Moderator of the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism, World Council of Churches

"This represents a truly pioneering study. It is likely to become a standard reference in the field. To my knowledge, there has never been such a systematic and comprehensive study of Orthodox missiology."

Gerald H. Anderson, Director, Overseas Ministries Study Center, Ventor, New Jersey

"This book fills a real gap in the available documentation on the subject. It is essentially a very comprehensive survey, but it is also helpfully critical. I consider the publication of this book to be a very helpful contribution to a better understanding of Orthodoxy in the English-speaking world."

John Meyendorff, Dean, St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary
