Fr. John Behr's translation of Origen's On First Principles
« on: November 08, 2018, 05:00:02 PM »
For those of you with $200 lying about, Fr. John Behr has published a new translation of Origen's On First Principles. You can read a review of it here.
“Steel isn't strong, boy, flesh is stronger! That is strength, boy! That is power! What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?  Contemplate this on the tree of woe.” - Elder Thulsa Doom of the Mountain of Power

Mencius said, “Instruction makes use of many techniques. When I do not deign to instruct someone, that too is a form of instruction.”

An off-top, but I was present at his lecture on last Saturday Becoming Human in Christ . Some of his statements have been perceived there are controversial, especially about the nature of God consists - I don't remember if precisle this word has been used - in death and resurrection of Christ.
Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria
