Mar 29, David Mosley rated it it was amazing. Read 21 December Review: What is listed an introduction to Orthodox theology, is in many ways an introduction to orthodox theology.

Despite his critiques some possibly wrong of Aquinas and Augustine and the Western Tradition as a whole , Lossky provides an excellently brief but rich theology that can and should be useful to all Christians. Dec 09, Yuri Zbitnoff rated it it was amazing Shelves: old-tyme-relijun. It's occasionally dense, but it's as satisfying and concise a summary of Orthodox theology as I can imagine. Of particular note are the distinctions he draws between the Orthodox view and Neoplatonism, Arianism, and Nestorianism.

There is also a good exposition on the connection between Christology and iconography. Nov 17, Christian Proano rated it it was amazing. As good as it is, I think a fresh translation would help, considering the background of the translator which at some point may put the reader into suspicion.

Jan 13, Fr. Thomas Sandberg rated it liked it. This book should have been called Orthodox Dogmatic Theology: An Introduction , as on the back of the book we read that it was "originally intended as a course in dogmatic theology" and in the introduction we are told again that the core of what makes up this book came from "a journal distributed among the emigre community in Paris, carrying a series of related pieces by Lossky, under the general heading, Theologie Dogmatique.

There is a lot to take in in this slim book. My best advice is skip or rip out the introduction, dismiss Lossky's mention of Meister Eckart, and keep in mind that with his mention of apocatastasis mentioned twice, I believe he is in error--well, at least depending upon what he exactly means by his use of the term.

And since he is no longer with us, we are unfortunately unable to ask him. View 1 comment. Apofatismul consta in negarea a ceea ce Dumnezeu nu este. Este eliminata in primul rand intreaga creatie, chiar si maretia cosmica a boltei instelate si lumina inteligibila a ingerilor din ceruri.

Sunt exculse apoi cele mai inalte atribute: bunatatea, iubirea, intelepciunea si, in cele din urma, insasi fiinta. Jun 28, Mitch Mallary rated it really liked it. The Church in the West is sometimes referred to as a footnote to Plato.

Perhaps the introduction of some Eastern Orthodox theology may serve as a helpful remedy to the Neoplatonic impulses stemming from Augustine onward in the western tradition. Nov 21, Jonathan added it Shelves: theology.
