Theological and Practical Relevance of Evangelicals within an Eastern Orthodox Context

This session will address the most prominent theological features of Eastern Orthodoxy in relation to Evangelicalism. The main thrust of the two expositions will be the practical aspect of the theological common ground and differences. The question we will try to answer is - what is the distinctive contribution of Evangelical witness within majority EO contexts, and how is that profiled within the wider theological, ecclesiological and practical interaction between the two confessions.
