"Orthodoxy Revisited: Contrasting The Faith and Practice of The Eastern Orthodox Church with Evangelical Doctrine"
By Robert Lloyd Arnold
(Regina Orthodox Press, Salisbury, MA 01952 - 254 pp.)
This volume by a former Evangelical and then Anglican who became Eastern Orthodox takes to task The Catholic Church's "doctrinal corruptions" with two major chapters on the Filioque and Palamism that are analyzed and critiqued.

A copy of this review is available for $10.00 from James Likoudis, P.O. Box 852. Montour Falls, NY 14865



"Church, Papacy and Schism"
By Philip Sherrard
(Denise Harvey Publisher, 340 05 Limni, Evia, Greece; 1978; 2nd ed. 1996; 116 pp)
This polemic by an Eastern Orthodox emphasized that "the issue of the papacy is a theological issue, fundamentally an issue of Christological and Trinitarian theology". James Likoudis challenges and refutes the author's contention that the Papacy constitutes a "corruption of patristic ecclesiology".

A copy of this review is available for $12.00 from James Likoudis, P.O. Box 852. Montour Falls, NY 14865



Michael Whelton Vs. The Petrine Primacy

In this review Mr. Likoudis exposes the faulty logic and maze of contradictions in Mr. Whelton's book.

This Review now available for $18.00 in a Xeroxed copy of 41 pages.

An Eastern Orthodox Response
To The June 29, 2007 CDF Document. Click
"Let us restore visible unity to the Church or this world will be deprived of a witness that only the disciples of God's Son, who died and rose out of love, can offer it so that it may be prompted to open itself to faith (cf. Jn. 17:2). And what can encourage the people of today to believe in Him, if we continue to tear the seamless garment of the Church, if we do not succeed in receiving the miracle of unity from God by working to remove the obstacles which prevents its full manifestation? Who will forgive us for this lack of witness? I have sought unity with all my strength, and I will continue to do all I can until the end to make it one of my priority concerns of the Churches and of those who govern them in the apostolic ministry."
(Pope John Paul II to the Holy Synod
of the Rumanian Orthodox Hierarchy - 5/8/1999)
