Second Edition (Sep. 2014): ePub, mobi, and AZW
Third Revised Edition (July 2015): PDF Only
It has been my strong desire for some time now to revise my book in order to emphasize ecumenism and unity proportionately a lot more than in the first (2004) edition. I'm much more interested in finding common ground. I've also learned a thing or two about Orthodoxy over the past decade. I wanted this volume to be able to read by Orthodox and also Eastern Catholics, without having seizures or going into apoplectic fits (caused by my ignorance or overly polemical or biased writing). I exaggerate, of course, but perhaps not by much! Toward that end I have enlisted a very qualified Byzantine Catholic friend to participate in the revised edition: Fr. Deacon Daniel G. Dozier. The revision remains an apologetic for Catholicism and respectful critique of Orthodoxy, but now it also includes friendly ecumenical discussion and dialogue: feedback and input from the Eastern theological perspective. The overall tone, tenor, and goal is considerably different. Unity is stressed as much as apologetics.
NOTE again: The PDF is the revised 3rd edition (completed on 7-21-15): available (for the time being) only here. What is offered currently on Amazon, Nook Books, Lulu, etc. (and here in ePub, AZW, and mobi formats), is the second edition. I am holding off on revising the book in the other venues until I hear back about a possible "official" publication of the third edition.
