What would be a good recommendation for a book on Orthodox Theology?   Not a basic introduction book, but one that gets into more details.

Is the book, Orthodox Dogmatic Theology, by Fr. Michael Pomazansky and translated by Fr. Seraphim Rose a good choice?

Yeah that is a good book.  Dormition Skete also has a good book out that is a shorter but still good...can't think of the name off the top of my head.

I'd also recommend "Byzantine Theology" by Fr. John Meyendorff.

With two positive votes, I think I will buy it.  

I recently ordered the Lives of the Three Hierarchs:  Basil, Gregory, and John C.  and the complete works of St. Ambrose.  I will probably order the Theology book a little later.  Much to do and much to read.

I have the book as well, very readable. Easier to digest than something Lossky writes (but his books are brilliant too)
