John Anthony McGuckin Publishes History of the Eastern Orthodox Church

Wednesday, July 1, 2020

John Anthony McGuckin (Nielsen Emeritus Professor of Byzantine Christian Studies at Union Theological Seminary) has published The Eastern Orthodox Church: A New History (Yale University Press, 2020). In his review for the New York Review of Books (July 2, 2020), Diarmaid MacCullock writes: "There could be no better guide to [the Orthodox Christian way of life] than McGuckin. An academic theologian and historian with a distinguished career in British and American universities, he is also an archpriest of the Romanian Orthodox Church.... He knows how to address a non-Orthodox audience, presenting in a relatively short book what needs to be known about two millennia of Christian history."
