Rare are the books of Orthodox Christian authors that deal with the subject of politics in a comprehensive way. In this book, the reader will find a faithful engagement with the liturgical and patristic traditions, with contemporary thinkers, Orthodox and non-Orthodox, all in conversation with political science and philosophy.
The author is courageous in dealing with the very sensitive issue of the relationship between the Church and society and with urgent contemporary political and socio-economic issues. However, he understands that this cannot be done without theological criteria, i.e., this can be done only through the relational experience of the Church. Readily listening to the global ecumenical theological conversations and following the best theological voices from East and West, Fr Radovan focuses on a personalistic rather than an individualistic view of the law and politics. As an excellent Orthodox theologian and a proponent of dialogue, rooted in the catholic (holistic) being of the Orthodox Church and of his Serbian people, Fr. Radovan offers a methodology that encompasses the abovementioned concerns and quests.
