Science and Orthodox Christianity
Two Orthodox Psychologists Offer Their Views

by Reader [Father] Joseph Miller and Archbishop Chrysostomos of Etna

22 pp.

In this joint monograph, Dr. Miller argues convincingly that there is absolutely no conflict between Orthodoxy and science, as long as the latter is pursued by men and women of faith who are aware of the limitations of the human intellect, humbling themselves before the mysteries of the created universe. Archbishop Chrysostomos explores the relationship between a spiritual Father and his spiritual children in both psychological and theological terms, thereby giving a practical example of how the two approaches can be fruitfully integrated.
