This splendid translation of Elisabeth Behr-Sigel`s essays on issues related to the ministry of women in the church is a cause of joy and gratitude for English-speaking people interested in orthodox Christianity. If the present volume did nothing more than to widen and deepen discussion among the Orthodox concerning the community and ministry of women and men in the church, this alone would be sufficient reason to offer its author, and its English translators and publisher, our greatest gratitude.

MORE SPIRITED THAN LIONS: AN ORTHODOX RESPONSE TO FEMINISM AND A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO THE SPIRITUAL LIFE OF WOMEN
“Though feminism greatly increased respect for women’s talents and abilities, it became party to a widespread cultural attitude of self-pity and grabbiness, the antithesis of Christian faith. Orthodoxy, with its examples of noble, courageous women who sacrifice all for Christ, is the antidote, as Sarah Cowie shows in this much-needed and excellent book.“

In this daring and speculative work, Evdokimov challenges contemporary Christianity to face up to its androcentrism. The dominance of the male in both society and the Church, he asserts, is at the root of many of the evils that plague the modern world. Evdokimov sees the solution in a rediscovery of an authentic Christian anthropology, one that sees males and females as complementary, yet with distinct charisms and vocations.
