Communion and otherness: how can these be reconciled? This work seeks to answer the question. It probes the Christian tradition and highlights the existential concerns that already underlay the writings of the Greek fathers and the definitions of the early ecumenical councils.


Introduction: Communion and Otherness; 1. On Being Other: Towards an Ontology of Otherness; 2. On Being a Person: Towards an Ontology of Personhood; 3. The Father as Cause: Personhood Generating Otherness; 4. The Trinity and Personhood: Appreciating the Cappadocian Contribution; 5. Pneumatology and the Importance of the Person: A Commentary on the Second Ecumenical Council. 6. Human Capacity and Human Incapacity: A Theological Exploration of Personhood; 7. "Created" and "Uncreated": The Existential Significance of Chalcedonian Christology; 8. The Church as the "Mystical" Body of Christ: Towards an Ecclesial Mysticism.


John D. Zizioulas, Metropolitan of Pergamon, was previously Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Glasgow and Visiting Professor at King's College, London. He is the author of Being as Communion (1985), and has been a major Orthodox contributor to modern ecumenical discussion. Paul McPartlan is Professor at the Catholic University of America.


"This work is highly recommended for the upper level student, professor, and churchman or churchwoman seeking a deeper understanding of these important topics. Truly a challenging work." -Catholic Library World--Sanford Lakoff
