Divine Essence and Divine Energies

Ecumenical Reflections on the Presence of God in Eastern Orthodoxy

by Constantinos Athanasopoulos and Christoph Schneider (eds.)

ISBN: 9780227173862

 

‘Certainly, this volume deserves the attention of all those interested in conciliar discourse. Yet it also serves as a vital text that might direct the reader towards deeper understanding of the “Uncreated Light” and related doctrinal concepts. The content and contours of this volume elevate the discussion of the divine energy-essence distinctions while the breadth and depth of perspectives serve to challenge the reader with a rich intellectual exercise. The writers of the ten essays walk carefully and critically across the subject matter while demonstrating the latitude in which the Christian tradition has travelled historically, philosophically, and theologically as it has sought to understand a doctrine at the center of the East-West divide. Accordingly, I would highly recommend this as a chief text for student and scholar alike.’

 Ashley John Moyse, American Theological Enquiry, Vol.7, No.1, January 15th 2014
