The Revival of Political Hesychasm in Contemporary Orthodox Thought focuses on the retrieval of the spiritual theology of the Orthodox Church and how it is being used in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries to develop a political ideology that allows for the creation of a unique Eastern Orthodox identity, which is against western globalization. Paramount in the creation of this identity is the thought of John S. Romanides and Christos Yannaras.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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
