Upon This Rock: Doctrine, Dogma, and Orthodox Church Authority
David Dale has given us an exhaustive treatment of urgent contemporary theological problems considered with erudition and compassion. This study will enable the reader to understand the criteria by which the Orthodox Church decides if doctrinal propositions are true or in error. This is a book about why doctrine matters and what it is and is not! David Dales work gives an essential understanding...it should be compulsory reading for anyone considering ordination as well as all Orthodox laity. Never a dull read, David Dales work is a rare combination of sound theology, enthusiastic evangelisation and punchy polemic. With much of the Church in chaos David Dale knows that the remedy is Orthodoxy.
