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!
