Book "The Orthodox Dilemma", by George Alexander

Ένα βιβλίο που θέτει το αίτημα του διαλόγου μεταξύ των ορθοδόξων όλης της Γης, κανονικών και σχισματικών κάθε λογής. Βεβαίως στους Ορθοδόξους εντάσσει και τους αντιχαλκηδόνιους, ατυχώς ή όχι δεν θα το κρίνω εδώ. Πάντως πρόκειται για ένα ζήτημα, κατά τη γνώμη μας, τόσο σημαντικό όσο και ο διάλογος με τους ετεροδόξους (σχετική τοποθέτησή μας, επιτρέψτε μου, εδώ).

The Orthodox Dilemma consists of personal reflections on global Pan-Orthodox Christian Unity. The work focuses on the need for establishing sacramental communion between the Eastern, Oriental and other families of Orthodox Churches. The author calls to create a common conciliar platform for Orthodox Churches and to establish dialogues between Eastern, Oriental, Old Believes, Old Calendar, Non-canonical, Unrecognized and New Generation Orthodox Churches.
The major aim of the work is to provide different and unique aspects of Pan-Orthodox Christian Unity.
