Product Description

The Bride of the Lamb is widely regarded as Sergius Bulgakov's magnum opus and also one of the greatest works ever produced in the modern Orthodox church. For readers new to Russian religious thought, Bulgakov's work presents a fresh approach to Christian doctrine. He examines issues of ecclesiology and eschatology from a sophiological perspective. This distinctive Russian approach, based on the doctrine of Sophia (the wisdom of God) sees the Creator and creation intimately linked as Divine-humanity. The Bride of the Lamb explores the nature of created beings, the relationship between God and the world, the role of the church, and such eschatological themes as the second coming of Jesus, resurrection and judgment, and the afterlife. Certain to breathe new life into Western approaches to Christian doctrine!

Publisher's Description

Sergius Bulgakov is thought by many to be the twentieth century's foremost Russian Orthodox theologian. The Bride of the Lamb is widely regarded as Bulgakov's magnum opus and, even more, as one of the greatest works ever produced in the modern Orthodox church. This book is now available in English thanks to esteemed translator Boris Jakim, along with an introduction to Bulgakov and his theological context.

For readers new to Russian religious thought, The Bride of the Lamb presents a fresh approach to Christian doctrine. Bulgakov examines issues of ecclesiology and eschatology from a sophiological perspective. This distinctive Russian approach, based on the doctrine of Sophia, the wisdom of God, sees the Creator and creation intimately linked as Divine-humanity. The Bride of the Lamb explores the nature of created beings, the relationship between God and the world, the role of the church, and such eschatological themes as the second coming of Jesus, resurrection and judgment, and the afterlife.

Editorial Reviews

Paul Valliere
"Already the most distinguished translator of Russian religious philosophy and theology in the English-speaking world, Boris Jakim has outdone himself with his translation of Bulgakov's Bride of the Lamb. Drawing on his deep understanding of modern Russian Orthodoxy and masterfully balancing the competing demands of literal and idiomatic translation, Jakim gives us a comprehensible Bulgakov without blunting the visionary enthusiasm and prophetic challenges that make Bulgakov's theology the wondrous thing that it is. Jakim has made an exceptional contribution to contemporary theological scholarship and ecumenical understanding. "
