Description

Stephen R. Lloyd-Moffett

This story of profound spiritual transformation demonstrates how a bishop and a local monastery turned a village riddled by scandal into one of the most spiritually vibrant towns in all of Greece.  The book covers the political history and religious character of the region of Nikopolis, from the time of the Apostle Paul in AD 63 to the arrival of Bishop Meletios in 1980.

With great sensitivity, the author deals with the issue of sexual misconduct within the church, the restoration of the local church to spiritual health, and the renewed trust between church leaders and the laity.  He also offers a short biography of Bishop Meletios, the church leader who applied his ancient faith in a modern context to inspire social and religious change.
