This sermon was originally printed in the Alexandrian journal edited by Methodius Fouyas Ekklesiastikos Pharos 2-3 (1970). It was subsequently reprinted in the form of a pamphlet by the Fellowship of St Andrew, The Relevance of Orthodoxy (Stirling, UK: Drummond Press, 1971). The occasion for the delivery of this sermon on May 24th, 1970 in the historic Greyfriars Church in Edinburgh was the visit of several Orthodox bishops – the Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria, Nikolaos VI; the Archbishop of Thyteira and Great Britain, Athenagoras (Kokkinakis); and Torrance’s close friend, Methodios, Metropolitan of Axum, Ethiopia – to Edinburgh to receive honorary doctorates.
