In this daring and speculative work, Evdokimov challenges contemporary Christianity to face up to its androcentrism. The dominance of the male in both society and the Church, he asserts, is at the root of many of the evils that plague the modern world. Evdokimov sees the solution in a rediscovery of an authentic Christian anthropology, one that sees males and females as complementary, yet with distinct charisms and vocations.
Paul Evdokimov (1902-1970) was a professor at St Sergius Theological Institute in Paris, Director of the Center of Orthodox Studies and served as the Director of the Ecumenical Institute in Bossey, Geneva. He has been appropriately called "a theological bridge between East and West" because he brings patristic insights to bear upon modern situations. Also available from SVS Press is Evdokimov's highly popular The Sacrament of Love, part of his detailed analysis of the spiritual gifts of men and women.
