‘‘Over the last two decades the American academy has engaged in a wide-ranging discourse on faith and learning, Christianity and higher education. Among the Christian voices that have weighed in on these topics, Orthodox Christians are not merely underrepresented; they are not even represented at all. This is not because no one has cared to listen but because scholars of the Orthodox tradition have rarely participated in these conversations’’ (p. 1). So begins the introduction to this significant book, the culmination of a decade-long conversation first initiated with the support of the Lilly Endowment’s Program for the Theological Exploration of Vocation at Hellenic College. Truly, scholars of the Orthodox tradition have now joined the faith and learning conversation with passion and civility, to borrow a phrase from Parker Palmer.
