Excerpt


What is our participation in the divine humanity? In explaining this important doctrine, Sergius Bulgakov begins by surveying the field of Christology with special reference to the divine humanity. He considers the role of the Divine Sophia, examines the foundations of the Incarnation, explores the nature of Christ's divine consciousness, and ponders Christ's ministries while on earth. A profound discussion of Christ's kenosis (or self-emptying) as a model for humanity rounds out this comprehensive and valuable study. The Lamb of God is one of the greatest works of Christology in the twentieth century and a crowning achievement in the examination of the theology of divine humanity.

Excerpt


The Friend of the Bridegroom offers a compelling theological interpretation of John the Baptist as seen through the eyes of Eastern Orthodoxy.

Written by Sergius Bulgakov, the leading Russian theologian of modern times, this book sheds new light on the mission and meaning of John the Baptist, commonly referred to in Orthodoxy as the "Forerunner of the Lord." Bulgakov traces the Baptist's life from beginning to end-his birth, his preaching of repentance, his baptism of the Lord, his agony, his death, his glorification, and his veneration in the context of Eastern Orthodoxy. In addition to probing the Gospel narratives, Bulgakov's interpretation is colored by sacred tradition as it is embodied in patristic literature, in liturgy, and in iconography.

But this is not a work of arcane scholarship intended just for academic readers; indeed, in the words of translator Boris Jakim, it is "a work of prayer" that will stir the souls of Christians everywhere.

Excerpt


Sergius Bulgakov is widely considered to be the twentieth century's foremost Orthodox theologian, and his book The Comforter is the most comprehensive and profound book about the Holy Spirit ever written by a Russian theologian--perhaps by anyone anywhere. Bulgakov explores all aspects of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit in encyclopedic fashion, both as they are viewed in the Orthodox tradition and throughout church history. The book has sections on the development of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit in early Christianity and on the development of the doctrine of procession in the patristic and later Byzantine periods. It also touches on the place of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity and explores Old and New Testament notions of the Spirit of God. A concluding chapter deals with the mystical revelation of the Holy Spirit.

An important virtue of The Comforter is Bulgakov's treatment of the filioque question. In fact, his discussion of this question may be the most important modern contribution to filioque studies from the Orthodox perspective. Examining the writings of the chief theoreticians on both sides of the dispute, Bulgakov finds that each side is wrong in its own way. He concludes that the filioque question is not an insuperable obstacle to the reunification of the churches. Finally available in English through the work of Boris Jakim, today's foremost translator of Russian theology and philosophy into English, The Comforter is a major publishing event.
