Robert Tobias

This anecdotal account of the author's experiences with Orthodox Christians, mostly in East Europe but also in North America, is intended as a suppliment to the scholarly reports of official dialogue between the two churches - Lutheran and Orthodox.  Robert Tobias writes, "With all the Vicissitudes of our past relationships, ... there has been an enduring fascination with each other and with our Lord's call to unity, which has drawn us again and again into dialogue and common cause in the world."

The reader is invited, even enticed into joining the author in a journey, from rich experiences of encounter between Orthodox and Lutheran fellow Christians, to creative and sometimes surprising and amusing reflections about the meanings of those encounters.

It's a book about styles of life and world-view; some head-tripping, yes, but beyond that, abiding relations of the heart.

It's about American culture religion, and conflicts between individualistic pluralism and historic continuities.  About churchly relationships - the whole family of God, sometimes quarreling, befuddling or clarifying, supporting or loving, but always family.
