Thank you all for the replies! I read them as they came up but I am so bad at replying! My life has been so busy these days and I just haven't had the energy to will myself to reply. I am sorry for that. My three munchkins take it out of me on a daily basis. Also, sorry about that most sinister greeting!
At least it generated some good discussion on the word "hello"!
I am in a course at my college right now that's based on the theology of the human person. I wanted to learn something new but at the same time, helping out my great professor by giving him something fresh to look at. I always get brownie points when I make a comment about EO or OO. It makes me look like I know what I am talking about, but in reality almost everything I know is from these boards. LOL!!!
I needed to choose a modern theologian; unfortunately the Oriental Orthodox are extremely patristic. I knew that, but I never realized how patristic they are until I tried to find a modern theologian and came up with a lot of stuff on the church fathers. This is not an insult, but rather a compliment. I think its pretty amazing how true to the fathers OO theology is.
This course has opened me up to a lot of interesting protestant theologians. Ultimately though, I wen't with a Roman Catholic for my report. I took a sort of controversial figure as my topic so at least it will be fun and new(for me). His name is Karl Rahner and he had a big influence (apparently) on Vatican II.
When I come up to my winter break I hope to get some extra free time to read. With that free time in mind, I propose teh question again, but in a broader sense: Are there any modern OO theologians out their that are worth reading? It would need to be translated in English of course because I am no where near fluent in a second language.
Thanks again to all the posters on these great forums! I tend to only lurk here, but believe me I've learned a great deal!
