Johannes Miroslav Oravecz


$ 40.00



Description

Nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian religious intellectuals devoted a great deal of attention to the concept ofåÊagape, or Divine Love, arguing that the Christian church is a reflection of the triune, self-sacrificing God and his love for all of creation. On account of their deliberations, these intellectuals played a key role in mediating between the Orthodox Church and modern society. Their quest for dialogue between the 'mystery of the sacred' and the 'ordinary of everyday life' remains relevant for Western societies today.

InåÊGod as LoveåÊJohannes Oravecz presents a comprehensive summation of twenty-five prominent Russian religious thinkers and their thought on the concept ofåÊagape, showing in detail how they broke new ground in their various affirmations of the truth thatåÊGod is love. No other book in any language treats this topic with such breadth and depth.
