Against False Union: Humble thoughts of an Orthodox Christian concerning the attempts for union of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church with the so-called Churches of the West.
Alexander Kalomiros With a Prologue by Photios Kontoglou Translated from the Greek by George Gabriel
“From the time of its first appearance in 1967, Alexander Kalomiros’ Against False Union has been widely acclaimed. Orthodox and non-Orthodox alike have made reference to it, quoting especially from its chapters on ecclesiology, salvation, and the participation of the Orthodox Catholic Church in the ‘World Council of Churches.’ We now offer a fourth printing of this timely and enlightening publication with a revised Appendix. In these days, when ‘because of the abounding of iniquity the love of many hath grown cold,’ we pray that this book will continue to be a source of inspiration, edification, and guidance unto salvation for pious and Orthodox Christians, as well as for those who are not of the Orthodox Faith. Amen. So be it.” —“Preface”
