- Sep 25, 2013View SourceApart from Orthodoxy simply not being as systematic as legacy Latin and German churches, it's also important to remember that anglophone Orthodoxy is minuscule when compared with world Orthodoxy (the second largest Christian communion after the Roman Catholic church). If you have facility in modern Greek, Russian, or Romanian, you may want to look at resources available in those languages, as well. There may also be a decent amount of material available in French, which would have been used as an academic language in both the Orthodox church in the Levant (Antioch) as well as in the Russian church, before the Revolution/Civil War as well as in the emigration following it.ChristopherOn Wed, Sep 25, 2013 at 8:43 AM, <revcatherwood@...> wrote:
Brothers and sisters,
Does anyone know of an Orthodox "Dogmatics" volume, or something similar to Pieper or Mueller or even Koehler's "Summary of Christian Doctrine? (I've found this the briefest, yet best/most concise)" I would like to get a little deeper into an understanding of where East/Lutheranism differs, and something like this would be helpful, systematically.
I have seen many online sources, however, I like books. To hold. I would like something I can carry around, and not on my tablet. I like to make notes in the margins. I am old fashioned.
Can anyone point me in a direction, or is a Dogmatics book inherently Lutheran? What do they use at the Orthodox seminaries? HELP. Thanks in advance.
In Christ, and Him crucified,
