On Human Being
‘The well-known Orthodox author and professor of Eastern Christian spirituality in Paris, Olivier Clément, offers us an extremely important book. It should challenge both Orthodox and other Christians in the West not only to be open to the treasures of the traditions of the Christian East of old but, above all, to receive these traditions, expressed here in modern, existential terms, and through them enrich and revitalize the Churches at the dawn of new millennium and into the 21st century.’
George A. Maloney
