This is Theology! This immensely rich book is the first time a major work of Fr. Staniloae's has appeared in english. It is the first half of volume one of his three volume "Orthodox Dogmatics". This volume considers the topics of Revelation, Knowledge of God and the Trinity.
What is immediately clear, and what seperates this book from mere academic theology is that Fr. Staniloae's theology is rooted in the Church and flows from personal experience of love and communion with God. As such, his work, while learned, and at times dense, is never abstract but is vibrantly expressive of the Christian encounter with the Triune God.
Because of this lived, ecclesial experience, Fr. Staniloae's perspective is eschatological and so is focused on human freedom and the fulfillment of our freedom in communion with God. His work manages to be simultaneously contemporary in wrestling with modern concerns and firmly traditional as his work is grounded in the Christian patrisitc tradition. He clearly demonstrates the wisdom of our forebears and their vital contribution to contemporary theological discourse without ever being trapped in the patristic archeology or patristic fundamentalism that characterizes some contemporary Orthodox theology. In reading this work, one is in the presence of a holy man and a great thinker. This book is easily one of the most important works of 20th century theology.

Magesterial! A vision of the God who is always greater. 27 May 2003
By A. Doug Floyd - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Staniloae is simply breathtaking. He holds the tensions of Christian faith in a beautiful harmony. For instance, his discussion of the cataphatic and apophatic way of spiritual life is the best treatment I have ever read on the topic. It steers away from what he considers to be a Westernized understanding of negative theology which borders on agnosticism. Staniloae presents a relational God who creates time and space for man's place of movement toward intimacy with God. Staniloae's thought is particularly relevant in this postmodern age. He would be interesting to read in conjunction with Colin Gunton, Stanley Grentz, Thomas Torrance, or other Trinitarian theologians.
