Patrick Viscuso

Revised and updated.

When the average Orthodox hears the words “canon law,” among the things that may come to mind are a dusty code or set of severe regulations resulting in excommunication for the slightest infraction.  Far from it, Fr. Viscuso conveys the point that canon law, as the tradition of the canons, is an incarnational reality.  The canons are pastoral standards manifesting God’s saving Truth, rather than a set of harsh authoritarian rules.  The author uses a unique approach with case studies to elicit answers from the readers, while including an answer key at the end of the work to provide an extremely enlightening and lively commentary.  This book will initiate dialogue and will be an exciting resource for all interested in the Life of the Church. - Rev. Dr. Joseph Allen; Director, Antiochian House of Studies; Professor, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
