Description

“In this, the third volume of The Experience of God, Fr. Dumitru Staniloae’s Orthodox Dogmatic Theology (the third half-volume of the Romanian original), we find his treatment of Christology, of the Person and work of our Lord Jesus Christ. At first sight, it seems a very traditional treatment – biblical witness of both the Old and New Testaments, the patristic witness, the theology of the Incarnation, and then a treatment of Christ’s work as Prophet, Priest, and King – but the traditional structure…disguises an account of Christ that, though certainly deeply traditional and Orthodox, is challenging and even revolutionary in its approach.” – From the introduction by Andrew Louth

Fr Dimitru Staniloae (1903-1993) is widely considered as one of the greatest Orthodox theologians of the 20th Century. He was Professor of Dogmatics at the Theological Institute in Bucharest, Romania from 1947-1973. In 1990 he was made a Member of the Romanian Academy. — Backcover
