OK.  So, why are you sharing this?

I figured it was just a thread similar to "What are you reading?" ... this one being "What are you working on?"  Grin Cheesy angel

Hmmmmmmmmm.  OK, let me try this again.  Are you looking for:

1) Other people working on the same thing to share information, or
2) Encouragement to keep going, or
3) General compliments, or
4) Something else not listed above?

Now I am intrigued, since most people have a reason (i.e. underlying motive) for posting which they generally disclose without much prompting.

Let's see, previous theologian did this work - previous theologian did this work + then previous theologian before that previous theologian did that work.

ah, so. . what now? . .

You study the work of the previous theologians, pray a whole lot, and develop a synthesis of the previous works that explains the Orthodox mindset to a modern audience  Smiley
