Daniel P. Payne is a lecturer and member of the graduate faculty at Baylor University.
Payne provides us with a thorough and theoretically challenging examination of some influential theological and intellectual currents within the contemporary Greek Orthodoxy, their socio-historical background, and their multifaceted repercussions. This is a well-documented, thoughtful, and thus indispensable book for anyone wishing to learn more about Orthodox Christianity in general, its specific worldview, and its overall evolution in (post)modern times. -- Vasilios N. Makrides, author of Hellenic Temples and Christian Churches: A Concise History of the Religious Cultures of Greece from Antiquity to the Present At a time when "political hesychasm" is frequently being used to characterize Orthodox political theology, Daniel P. Payne presents us with a much needed critical analysis of the sources of this concept and its contemporary usage in Greek Orthodox theological thought. -- Kristina Stoeckl, Universita di Roma 'Tor Vergata
