Another Round of Applause for Fr Louth


Realising belatedly that my weekend readership is always my lowest, I thought that rather than offer an original post today I would try to garner some extra attention for my review (posted on Saturday) of Fr Andrew Louth’s Discerning the Mystery: An Essay on the Nature of Theology (Wichita, KS: Eighth Day, 2007). It really is a brilliant book that deserves the widest possible readership. I’m fairly certain that once you’ve finished it, you’ll want extra copies to give out to certain friends! Order it here.

Nice picture! I'm reminded, however, of a criticism of Fr Georges Florovsky in, I believe, The Orthodox Word. In fact, I'm pretty sure it was that periodical's obituary of the great man. The author of the piece was portraying Fr Georges as a divided soul, with one foot in the Orthodox East and the other in the Heterodox West, and suggested that his manner of dress said it on: "from his neck down, a cassock; on his head, a beret."

Better than the other way round, though.
