A popular approach to Christology book?
« on: August 28, 2019, 01:03:33 PM »
I'm looking for a book on Christology that aims at a wide readership. Nothing too academic, maybe some discussion of the Christological controversies in passing or technical terminology employed. Ideally the end of the book would have recommendations on deeper readings into Christology.

Anything like this? I'd like to have it and recommend to others new to Orthodoxy.

I’m not home now, so I can’t look and see if the book meets your requirements, but St Nektarios has a book called Christology that you might check out.

Thanks Mor, I'll take a look.

Well I might as well ask on the opposite end...any books in particular that you thought were great treatments on Christology?

Maybe this book?: https://www.amazon.com/Early-Church-Penguin-History-v/dp/0140231994/ref=asc_df_0140231994/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=266107423678&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=8845880417593354203&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9007392&hvtargid=pla-487662319099&psc=1
Thanks, I'll get a used copy since its cheap

Word of God ~ Rhema ~ LOGOS . . etc See St. Cyril of Alexandria or St. Severus of Antioch for Orthodox approaches to Christology.
