Satisfactory Essays
John Binns' An Introduction to the Christian Orthodox Churches intends to give the reader an overview of Orthodox churches, and not merely those but those which accepted the Council of Chalcedon. Binns' starts his overview of Orthodoxy's diversity by examining the various bishops found along Straight Street in Damascus, they all are representing different traditions. Through this lens Binns' begins to set the stage for Orthodox history and practice. He begins to differentiate Eastern and Western theology, thus a needed analysis begins to take shape of the Eastern church. Binns' takes on the task of fixing the lack of general information of Eastern Theology effectively by means of examining the past through a survey of Orthodoxy in the east.
