Christianity or the Church?

$5.95

 Product Description

Author: St. Ilarion (Troitsky)

Form: Paperback

Pages: 48

Christianity is presented here not as an abstract teaching to which mental assent is given, but as a life which unites separate persons in a way which can be said to be similar to the unity of the Persons of the Holy Trinity. Following the teaching of Khomiakov the author sees in "the denial of the Church the most characteristic feature of both Roman Catholicism and Protestantism." The teaching of Leo Tolstoy is seen to exemplify most clearly an understandng of Churchless Christianity. He concludes, "It must be considered the most vital necessity of the present time that Christ created precisely the Church and that it is absurd to separate Christianity from the Church..."

  1. Worthwhile, Although a Little Dry 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jul 2017

    This is a worthwhile essay and can be recommended. The writing style is a little dry, at least in this English translation, so it takes some concentration. Nevertheless, it is worth the purchase. The essay makes clear that there is no true Christianity outside the Orthodox Church. For those who are interested in a somewhat academic discussion, it is a satisfactory purchase.
