The present volume dealing with Christology is a happy testimony to the manner in which Fr. Staniloae affirms the dynamic aspect of Orthodox tradition and the missionary vocation of theology as a science of salvation and of eternal life. I congratulate Fr. Ion Ionita for translating into the English language this volume. -Patriarch Daniel of the Roman Orthodox Church, From the Forward
In this, the third volume of The Experience of God, Fr. Dumitru Staniloae's Orthodox Dogmatic Theology (the third half-volume of the Romanian original), we find his treatment of Christology, of the Person and work of our Lord Jesus Christ. At first sight, it seems a very traditional treatment- biblical witness, the thology of the Incarnation, and then a treatment of Christ's work as Prophet, Priest, and King- but the traditional structure... disguises an account of Christ that, though certainly deeply traditional and Orthodox, is challenging and even revolutionary in its approach. -Andrew Louth, From the Introduction
Fr. Dumitru Staniloae (1903-1993) is widely considered as one of the greatest Orthodox theologians of the twentieth century. He was Professor of Dogmatics at the Theological Institute in Bucharest, Romania, from 1947 to 1973. In 1990 he was made a Member of the Romanian Academy.
