TOWARD TRANSFIGURED LIFE
The first full treatment of the foundations of Eastern Orthodox Christian Ethics in English. A valuable resource revealing an ethical tradition which is scriptural and patristic, and which is eminently capable of contemporary application.
In this work,we remain in the tradition of the recent past in Orthodox Christian Ethics, which sees as legitimate the division of laborwhich assigns to one area of Systematic theology the exposition of the content of the saving knowledge of the revelation of God, and which reserves to another area of Systematic theology the exposition of the works of the Christian life. The assumption in this work is that a separation between them is fatal, a distinction unavoidable. The aim of this book is to provide an exposition of ehtical themes from a distinctively Eastern Orthodox Christian perspective. from the Author`s Introduction
