Eastern Christianity and Politics in the Twenty-First Century, a new volume edited by Lucian Leustean, is now officially in production. It will be published in Spring 2014 with Routledge. Lucian Turcescu and I sign the chapter on the Romanian Orthodox Church. The book is advertised on the Routledge website.
Its description reads: “This book provides an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of Eastern Christian churches in Europe, the Middle East, America, Africa, Asia and Australia. Written by leading international scholars in the field, it examines both Orthodox and Oriental churches from the end of the Cold War up to the present day. The book offers a unique insight into the myriad of church-state relations in Eastern Christianity and tackles contemporary concerns, opportunities and challenges, such as religious revival after the fall of communism; churches and democracy; relations between Orthodox, Catholic and Greek Catholic churches; religious education and monastic life; the size and structure of congregations; and the impact of migration, secularisation and globalisation on Eastern Christianity in the twenty-first century.”
