Abstract

Among the various national and international bilateral dialogues of recent decades, this book presents that which took place between the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland and the Russian Orthodox Church from 1970 to 2011.The book's editor, Juha Pihkala, participated actively in the discussions between 1975 and 2005, for part of this time as secretary of the Finnish working group. In his foreword, he notes that “the round of dialogue scheduled for 2014 had to be cancelled, not for reasons associated with the discussion process itself, but because the Russian side saw the exchange of views within the Lutheran Church concerning equal marriage as problematic for its own ecumenical position” (5). Discussions resumed in 2016 on a less official level.The first half of the book is made up of three chapters, followed by an “appendix,” accounting for about half the book, that documents the officially approved results of the discussions from 1970 to 2011. The author summarizes the contents of the book thus:The first section of the book (chapters 1–2) gives a brief explanation of the need for ecumenism in general and then, more broadly, an account of the contexts, processes, and results of the Finnish‐Russian discussions. The second section (chapter 3)
