- The appearance in 1965 of Orthodoxy, a masterpiece of synthesis, was a landmark in religious publishing and earned for its author a doctorate of theology from the Institut Saint-Serge in Paris. Paul Evdokimov here circumvents all scholastic theology on the one hand, and the traditional approach of the ‘Dogmatic’ theologians on the other, to develop an original synthesis of Orthodox theological thinking. Although he constantly quotes the Fathers, he does so creatively, so as not simply to repeat them, but to incarnate their spirit in our own time and for our future.
- Clément’s masterly exposition of the mysticism of the Fathers, already regarded as a modern classic, is now in its third edition. “There are some books so good that all one wants to say is: ‘Go out, buy it and read it – it is marvellous’. So it is with this fine translation.” Andrew Louth, Fairacres Chronicle
- In his encyclical Ut unum sint, Pope John Paul II expressed a desire for common reflection on the exercise of papal primacy. In You Are Peter Olivier Clément gives us a fascinating and brilliant response to this request.
- In this book of spiritual anthropology, the author of the much-acclaimed The Roots of Christian Mysticism shares his reflections on human nature, its challenges, problems, joys and fulfilment. The result is a treasure that will appeal to all those looking for a deeper meaning of what it is to be human.
