Healing Humanity: Confronting Our Moral Crisis collects a number of essays from some of the leading voices in the English-speaking Orthodox world today. These priests, professors, and scholars gathered in the spring of 2019 “to offer responses to the moral crisis our generation faces, elaborating upon its various forms and facilitating a fuller understanding of some of its theological and philosophical foundations.”

Holy Trinity Publications describes the focus of the book:

Western societies today are coming unmoored in the face of an earth-shaking ethical and cultural paradigm shift. At its core is the question of what it means to be human and how we are meant to live. The old answers are no longer accepted; a dizzying array of options are offered in their stead. Underpinning this smorgasbord of lifestyles is a thicket of unquestioned assumptions, such as the separation of gender from biological sex, which not so long ago would have been universally rejected as radical notions.

In addressing these pressing topics, the authors of Healing Humanity “offer support to all those who question the claims that are so forcefully insisted upon today.”

And together they “remind us that it is only through our participation in the life of Christ, God who became man, that we can find the healing of our humanity through the restoration in us of His image, in which we were formed at the beginning of time.”

Healing Humanity is available from Holy Trinity Publications for $24.95 in paperback and $14.99 for Kindle. A $5 pre-order discount is being offered through September 30.
