The Fellowship of Life
Virtue Ethics and Orthodox Christianity
This book fills a vacuum in our understanding of the Eastern Church by revealing themes, persons, and insights that offer resources for a contemporary moral theology. Reviewing the Eastern tradition from patristic times to the present, Woodill shows its relevance to contemporary virtue ethics and identifies both differences and similarities between Orthodox and other—Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish—virtue ethics.
About the Author
"Woodill joins the precious few Orthodox scholars attempting to formulate an ethical theory for our time from the liturgical, mystical, and ascetical tradition of Eastern Christianity. He integrates the main lines of contemporary virtue ethics with the view of Eastern Church fathers. . . . Lovers of Eastern Christianity . . . will welcome this book with gratitude and joy."—Thomas Hopko, dean, St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary
