Empirical Dogmatics of the Orthodox Catholic Church, vol. 1

Hierotheos of Nafpaktos

$ 33.00


‰ÛÏThe keys to empirical theology are man‰۪s progress from being in God‰۪s image to being in His likeness, from the state of being a servant to being a paid worker and a son, from purification to illumination and glorification, from selfish love to unselfish love. It is a theology of revelation, which is connected with man‰۪s glorification and is subsequently formulated in dogmas and teaching for the cure and guidance of other members of the Church. The basis of Orthodox theology is as simple as that. [...]This first volume is to some extent introductory. Apart from the introduction and some indispensable biographical and autobiographical material on Fr. John Romanides, it presents his teaching on the relationship between dogma and ethics; on the experience of revelation; on the bearers of revelation, who are the Prophets, Apostles, Fathers and saints; and the living monuments of revelation, which are Holy Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, and Holy Tradition. The common factor linking all the chapters and specific sections is the experience of God‰۪s purifying, illuminating and glorifying energy.‰۝
