I'd be fine with either St. John or Lossky, though I'd have to buy the book by Lossky if we chose that option.

A short synopsis in English is available online, http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/general/lossky_intro.aspx

Unfortunately, I don't know of any Internet link to the book's full text in English; there is one to its full text in Russian (http://www.wco.ru/biblio/books/lossk1/Main.htm), but I realize that the majority on this site does not read in Russian. :(

I tried to learn Russian once... I think I learnt a few words :laugh: I'll work on getting the Lossky book after the holidays.

It might be a real pain for a non-native Russian speaker because Lossky is a difficult author, he writes in long, complicated sentences. Still, of course, do try, and do ask me or Mikhail Smirnov or Nektarios if you have "linguistic" questions!
