Anyone read The Way to Nicaea by Fr John Behr?  I am finding it to be quite a hard read but quite worthwhile.  Here are the chapters I have read so far:

1: The Tradition and Canon of the Gospel according to the Scriptures
2: The Scriptural Christ
3: St Ignatius of Antioch

Five more to go after that!  I'll post some of my notes later.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

Anastasios, did you like this book?  I am thinking of buying it when I can afford to buy another book.  I really enjoyed his programs on the 7 Ecumenical Councils on "Come Receive the Light".

Ok, I've checked in with this thread at least once a week for nearly 10 years now, and I'm starting to think you aren't going to post these notes...  Huh

Over the last few months I've listened to 8-10 talks given by Fr. John Behr and I've really enjoyed them. Every once in a while he says something that seems to be quite disputable, but in general I find his way of looking at things to be a huge breath of fresh air. There are about a half dozen people who give me hope that this Christianity thing will somehow work out for me, and he's one of them. I think I still have his Male, Female, and the Human Person (Part 1, Part 2) on my Mp3 player, even though I've probably listened to it a half dozen times by now.
