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.
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

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!
