Dialogues with Patriarch Athenagoras



Olivier Clément was without doubt one of the great Christian humanists of the twentieth century, a writer who could take the insights of the classical theological tradition and the spiritual fathers of the early centuries and bring them into an astonishingly effective dialogue with the thinkers and artists of modernity. This book shows him in conversation with a kindred spirit, a visionary, prayerful, generous Orthodox leader, whose impact is still felt int he Eastern Christian world. It is a model of how pastoral authority and intellectual exploration might—and should—interact.

Rowan Williams, Former Archbishop of Canterbury

Throughout these pages, readers will discover the importance of encounter through dialogue. The fruit of these intimate conversations with French Orthodox theologian Olivier Clément is more than spiritual legacy; it is the key that unlocks the treasure-chest of Orthodox Christianity.

From the Foreword by Archbishop Elpidophoros of America
