By Bishop Maxim (Vasiljević):

His Grace Bishop Maxim (Vasiljevi) offers us a breath of fresh air in this compelling work. This is not a book of theology in the form we have become accustomed to expect: a systematic examination of the usual topics of theological reflection; it is much more than that. Bishop Maxim draws upon Scripture, the Fathers, and Liturgy to address perennial and yet very contemporary questions: our experience of time and history, our existence as human persons and the complexities of sexuality and gender, our life in the polis and the eklesia, and the relational presence of an icon in a world saturated with digital images.

He is a professor of Patristics at the University of Belgrade, and the editor of the university's journal Theology.
