Jean Yves Leloup
« on: February 28, 2010, 01:09:50 PM »
I was handed a book called Compassion and Meditation: the Spiritual Dynamic Between Buddhism and Christianity by Jean Yves Leloup.  He apparently is a French Orthodox priest. Here is his website: http://www.jeanyvesleloup.com/ag/biographie.php  Has anyone read of this book or know of this priest?

I'll resurrect this thread, since I would like to know more about him. He wrote the first Orthodox book I have ever read, which was an exegesis of the Revelation of John. Two friends have told me he's a bit under the influence of post-modern religious philosophy, but I didn't get it, at least not off the one book I read. Also, I'm aware he's from the OCF, which is uncanonical.
"Behold, the mystical sacrifice, fully accomplished, is ushered in. In fervent faith let us draw near, that we may become sharers in everlasting life. Alleluia."

Please pray for myself, my family and my friends.
