Vladimir Lossky

To the average western Christian, "theology" implies a dull, dry and uninteresting set of abstract propositions concerning the nature of God... something perhaps better left on the shelves of libraries. For Orthodoxy, however, theology is a living, vibrant tradition, never distinct from mysticism, the manifestation of the divine Mystery. Theology is the ordered awareness of man's experience of those things which are understood, yet surpass all knowledge. Such is the concern of this volume. Paperbound
