Among the major Christian denominations, the Orthodox Church is the least known and widely misunderstood. This is more serious in Asia where the Orthodox Church is a minority and is perceived as an exotic branch of Christianity. But in fact, the Eastern Church has been in China since the seventeenth century. The purpose of this work is to acquaint lay people, theological students and seminarians with the teaching of Orthodoxy through a study of important modern Orthodox theologians. Mong argues that in spite of the differences and painful clashes between the Eastern and Western Churches, there is a lot that they share in common. Key topics like ecclesiology, ecumenism, catholicity, traditions and liberation theology are explored in the works of Jaroslav Pelikan, Nicolas Berdyaev, Nicolas Afanasiev, Georges Florovsky, Sergei Bulgakov, John Meyendorff, John Zizioulas and Vladimir Lossky, together with their Catholic counterparts like Joseph Ratzinger, Yves Congar, Henri de Lubac, Karl Rahner and Hans Urs von Balthasar. This study highlights their striking similarities and suggests, that from an ecumenical point of view, their common heritage and concerns in the world can be a basis for dialogue and the healing of memory.

Ambrose Mong's research is very important for furthering conversations between the Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches. Dr. Mong's study represents a major contribution addressing the gap that exists between Orthodox theological thinking and Roman Catholic readership. An example of inspired scholarship, Purification of Memory invites careful reading and contemplation as it dispels some deep-seated stereotypes and misconceptions.
Dr Lasha Tchantouridze, Professor of Church History, Saint Arseny Orthodox Christian Theological Institute, Winnipeg, Canada

"...this study is a welcome addition to any scholar's library who desires to begin engaging with modern Orthodox theologians. Mong's summaries and analysis make an excellent resource for the educators looking to familiarize Roman Catholic and other Western theology students with an Orthodox theological outlook at the graduate and undergraduate level."
-Eric Lafferty, Theological Book Review, Vol. 27 No.1, 2016

"It is refreshing to find an introduction to the main figures and themes of twentieth-century Orthodoxy penned by a Chinese Catholic priest mainly writing for a Catholic audience."
-Thomas Cattoi, Theological Studies, Vol. 78, Issue 1, 2017

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
