"Fr. Dumitru Staniloae seeks always to indicate the inner coherence of dogmatic truth and the significance of each dogma for the personal life of the Christian. It is the theologian's task to make manifest the link between dogma and personal spirituality, to show how every dogma responds to a deep need and longing in the human heart, and how it has practical consequences for society. Dogmas, he is convinced, do not enslave but liberate; theology is essentially freedom. Freedom whether human or divine, is one of Fr. Dumitru's recurrent leitmotifs; God has made us partners and fellow-workers, who co-operate with him in full liberty; without freedom there can be no love and no interpersonal communication." -Kallistos Ware, From the Foreword
