Audiocassettes are available from the 4-5 October 1996 meeting of the Society for the Study of Eastern Orthodoxy and Evangelicalism featuring Dr. Thomas Oden and Fr. Stanley Harakas.
"Doing Theology: An Historical Overview of Orthodox and
Evangelical Approaches" ($8). Fr. Harakas describes the
Orthodox theological method as a mosaic of different resources:
the Scriptures, the liturgy, the theological affirmations, etc:
"No one image can tell the whole story."
Dr. Oden develops some of his thoughts on the
"consensual approach to truth" that is built on the Fathers of the
early centuries of the church.
- "Theological Method in the 1990s" ($8). Dr. Oden feels that
a recovery of the texts of early Christianity as a shared tradition is
crucial to theological method and dialogue. He describes some of
his efforts to publish a series of ancient Christian commentaries on
the Scriptures. Fr. Harakas describes the recovery of a genuinely
Orthodox theological method that has taken place through the work of
scholars like Fr. Georges Florovsky and Fr. John Romanides. Above
all, he argues, the recovery of a holistic approach is necessary, as
opposed to the reductionism of those who try to extract one part of the
"grand mosaic" and consider it to be the core.
"Orthodox and Evangelical Methods in Dialogue" ($8).
Dr. Bradley Nassif, "A Global Perspective on Orthodox-Evangelical
Relations" ($4). Dr. Nassif provides an overview of organizations
and individuals that are helping Orthodox and Evangelicals understand
each other, including a report on his trip to Cairo, Egypt, for a World
Council of Churches consultation on Orthodoxy and Western proselytism.
Complete set ($25).
