Fellow Workers with God: Orthodox Thinking on Theosis
Asked about the Orthodox doctrine of salvation, many people will say it has to do with theosis or deification, yet few can explain what theosis actually means. Normal Russell builds on his magisterial study, The Doctrine of Deification in the Greek Patristic Tradition, to present this complex teaching of the Fathers with uncompromising scholarship and welcome clarity. The book will interest specialists and non-specialists alike.
This is highly to be commended [Russell] has managed an enviable feat for a writer hitting a marvelous literary style and tone of approach....making high theology understandable. --Fr. John McGuckin -Professor of Early Church History - Union Theological Seminary
...a careful historical-theological analysis and comprehensive coverage of the major primary and secondary sources....providing the reader with a crisp, well-informed guide through the major issues. --Paul M. Blowers-Dean E. Walker Professor of Church History-Emmanuel School of Religion
