Dr. Bouteneff will lead us on considerations of the Orthodox teaching on Jesus Christ as the Truth, but always with an eye to responding to the particular challenges of the present age of relativism. Dr. Bouteneff “addresses important questions in a powerful way, with the courage to engage in the real world” (Rev. Dr. John McGuckin). Through his unique approach to how the Truth of our Faith intersects with the shifting sands of our post-modern age, we will gain practical insights into the difficult questions that confront us each time we walk out our front doors or, more and more, pass through the virtual front doors of our computers. (Adapted from a review of Dr Bouteneff's book at Amazon.com)

SWEETER THAN HONEY:
Orthodox Thinking on Dogma and Truth
From a Review at Amazon.com:
There are discussions of creeds, of Scripture, of saints, of church hierarchs and of icons, but all of them geared toward the core question of how the Orthodox Church defends the Truth of the Gospel. And, because of Bouteneff's approach, the treatment of standard topics seems new, especially in the sections on Scripture and Church leadership. There is an urgent need for just such a book, especially one aimed at the non-professional. For these are not questions only asked by students and professors of theology. These are questions that confront people each time they walk out their front doors or, more and more, pass through the virtual front doors of their computers. This is an excellent introduction to the Orthodox faith, written in a unique fashion, and with a view toward contemporary debates. It can be read with profit by beginners and more advanced readers alike.
