As editor, for twenty years, of the church monthlyThe Orthodox Church, chairman of the Department of External Affairs of the Orthodox Church in America, and chairman of the faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches from 1967-1976, John Meyendorff had ample experience and opportunity to reflect upon the situation of the Orthodox Church in the contemporary world.

In his editorials, printed here in Witness to the World, there are three major themes that reflect Father Meyendorff's fundamental convictions concerning the mission of the Orthodox in the contemporary world. This book focuses on: 1) the principles of Orthodox participation in the ecumenical dialogue, with particular comments on the new overtures which followed Vatican II, and the unfortunate politizations of Protestant ecumenism; 2) the particular responsibilities of the Orthodox Church in the fields of education and mission; and 3) developments in Russia, where the Orthodox Church faces a state whose official ideology is atheism, but where millions remains faithful to the Church, attracting a model for today and a hope for the future.
