Product Description

Why would the Soviet Union, a Bolshevik Communist State, host a millennial celebration of Eastern Orthodox Christian presence on Russian soil? This enlightening issue of Christian History & Biography searches for the answer, delving into the rich and sacred tradition of the Slavic peoples and Eastern Orthodox Christianity (a tradition unknown to most Western Protestants). Wars, legends, czars and mystics are but a few of the many threads that compose this intricately woven tapestry of Christian faith.

Inside this issue you'll find:

  • Of Mass Baptisms, National Churches, and the Great Commission - Can a king-ordered mass baptism of his nation's citizens really bring about their genuine conversion to Christ? What are we to make of Christ's command to "make disciples of all nations"?
  • What Is Eastern Orthodoxy Anyway? - It's being much-mentioned and much-lauded during all the millennial celebrations, but what, really, is this "Christian" faith that's so unfamiliar to most Western Protestants? Here's an introduction.
  • The Rich Heritage of Eastern Slavic Spirituality - Though practically unknown to most Westerners, the history of Orthodox spirituality among the Eastern Slavs of Ukraine and Russia is a deep treasure chest of spiritual exploration and discovery.
  • The "Primary" Source of the Millennium "Legends/Historical Events - Read for yourself the chief accounts upo n which the millennium celebration is based; while these much-loved chronicles admittedly contain a good bit of legend, they are still the best history we have.
  • The Soviet Union Celebrates 1000 Years of ChristianityWhy, all of a sudden, would an officially atheistic confederation of republics like the USSR choose to celebrate, in full pomp and grandeur, a thousand years of Christianity on its soil?
  • "Russian" Christianity and the Revolution: Russia and the surrounding Slavic countries were at one time considered among the "most Christian" of nations. So where was the church during the revolution that made the USSR atheistic?
  • The Soviet Union's Religious Situation Today - The Soviet government reports that religion is definitely on the decline in the USSR. And given the persistent harassment of the state, one might expect that-but trustworthy sources say it isn't so.

    This is a very good collection of articles about the history of Eastern Orthodox Church. Of course, being what it is, it is truly a history of Christianity at large, since all of Christianity was rooted in these traditions from the early centuries of the Church. It wasn't until the 10th Century that the official split between the Eastern Orthodox and Western Roman Catholic occurred, never to be remedied. As it was the duty of the early Church Fathers to weed out heresies and to write and adhere to a Creed that would last until the Second Coming of Christ, throughout the centuries the Nicene Creed has not been changed and will remain central to the declaration of beliefs of Orthodox Christians. This edition of "Christian History" is well worth the read, and will shed light upon the rich and unwavering traditions the early Church, as preserved in what is known today as the "Eastern Orthodox Church."
