No it's not. The last section is really bad.

I don't agree with everything HH Pope Shenouda III writes, however, for this book, I admit that the book is poorly translated into English. I have read the Arabic version too, and I believe it describes the OO view properly.

Really? That book helped me to understand the "one united nature" doctrine. If it wouldn't be to hard to do, could you explain the last section (the correct understanding of it) a bit for me. :)

The last section essentially has the appearance of Monothelitism. His Holiness appears to suggest that the only difference between the human and divine wills is contradiction and therefore union with God comes from the obliteration of the difference of our wills.

--Bump--

Wait, is bumping threads in any way, shape, or form against the forum's rules?

Peace,
