'Russian Piety' by Nicholas Arseniev
« on: December 25, 2002, 04:24:43 PM »
To those using the American calendar, the Ukrainian Christmas greeting: -Ñ-Ç-+-ü-é-+-ü -Ç-+-¦-¦-¦-¦-é-ü-Å! Christ is born!

Russian Piety by Nicholas Arseniev is a well-written, balanced, short book about Russian Orthodox thought and culture, from a representative of the ‘Paris school’ of theology. Critical at times, as it should be, and 100% orthodox. I’m halfway through it and am most impressed. (This from the so-called liberal bad guys of Russian Orthodoxy? I’d take an army of them over one Western real liberal bad guy — or gal to be PC — any day.)

I read Arseniev's RUSSIAN PIETY some years ago, and was also much impressed, Serge.  It was the icon on the soft-cover edition of the book, which I bought through the St. Vladimir's Seminary Bookstore, which initially drew me to RUSSIAN PIETY.  After reading the book, I really wanted that kind of piety in my own home.

CHRIST IS BORN!   GLORIFY HIM!

I have that edition too — seems to be a joint publication of SVS and Faith Press, an Anglo-Catholic Anglican publisher in England, back in the 1960s.
