About "Proselytism and Orthodoxy in Russia"
Few of the struggles Russia has undergone since the fall of Communism have been fiercer than that being fought between the long-represented Russian Orthodox Church and a host of groups seeking to evangelize the Russian people. This volume assesses the legitimacy of the Orthodox attempt to reclaim the spiritual and moral heart of the Russian people and to retain their adherence in a new, pluralistic world where many Christians and followers of other traditions seek the right to establish themselves. Proselytism and Orthodoxy in Russia also brings together scholarship on Russian laws regarding religion as well as suggesting guidelines for foreign missionaries in Russia.
