Public Orthodoxy - Sightings (Martin Marty)
We don't often hear about the Orthodox Christian Tradition, that eastern branch of the Christian faith that to some is exotic and even attractive as a spiritual tradition, but probably not as a public voice. Martin Marty has chosen to take notice of a journal titled Public Orthodoxy, which seeks to bring the broad Orthodox tradition into the public conversation. Since Orthodox Christianity has lived in recent centuries in the shadow of the Ottoman Empire and the Islamic world, as well as in the Shadow of the Soviet system for much of the 20th Century, it is worth attending to.
