The similarities between Greek Orthodoxy and Wesleyan faith are striking. The problem with this book is that it is a collection of essays rather than a progressing argument. Unfortunately this makes the connections between the two churches harder to find in the book. A careful reader will be able to make the connections and such on their own, but it would be nice if it were easier on the reader.

The essays in the book are each well-presented. And thankfully there is a holistic approach to the work, taking into account not just the theological writings of the two traditions but also journals of John and Charles Wesley, hymns, and anything else that is available for research.

For readers who themselves are Greek Orthodox or Wesleyan, this book will provide a good insight into your particular faith tradition. The authors are Wesleyan and Greek Orthodox, so every reader will have an inside and outside perspective, deepening the insights into each tradition.
