|Feminism and Tradition deals head-on with the questions and challenges which feminism presents to the traditional Orthodox Faith, in a wa y which is irenic, straightforward, and comprehensive. It examines at length the scriptural foundation for the Church’s Faith, as well as its elaboration by the Fathers, and goes on to offer a model and rationale for continuing to accept this traditional Faith in our modern age. Th e book defies the entrenched polarized positions of former debates, and bids us take another look at these controversial questions.
