Description (back cover): Although several Orthodox theologians have significantly influenced the development of Ecclesiology in the twentieth century, the contribution of (Archbishop) Stylianos Harkianakis remains, without doubt, a landmark in the history of that theological field today. Essentially, the author's consideration of the Church is that it is the most intimate and graced communion not only of human persons but of the entire created cosmos bonded together in a wondrous relationship with the uncreated God. Unconfusedly and indivisibly united with God, the Church therefore enjoys and rightly proclaims the truth - ie is infallible - for the world's salvation and the glorification of God. Ultimately, Harkianakis' theology of the Church's infallibility, ie its truthfulness, is simply a doxological affirmation of the genuine presence of God among His people and the world at large.
