Thank you very much.

If you're interested in theology, I'd recommend Vladimir Lossky's Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church.

Coincidentally, I was just looking in the Book Club forum and came to a thread titled, “Recommended Reading for Those New to Orthodoxy,” wherein one poster declared, “I found Lossky incredibly thick and boring.”  Perhaps it’s a different Lossky?


No, probably not. Lossky is pretty academic -- being an academic, I have a fairly high tolerance for academic writing. But if you're interested in theology, and not watered down or pop theology, but in detail, Lossky is your man.

OK, thanks for your help.
