Available November '08 In this book Sergius Bulgakov refutes the Roman Catholic dogma of the Immaculate Conception and discusses the Orthodox veneration of the Mother of God. The Burning Bush is a consideration of the personal sinlessness of Mary, the truth of which Bulgakov finds grounded in both Gospel witness and the liturgical tradition of the church.
Though his most controversial legacy to the theological community, Bulgakov's Sophiology nevertheless is critical to understanding his Mariology. This volume is more than mere sophiological speculation, however, as anthropology, eschatology, original sin, human sanctity, and sexuality all find their way into Bulgakov's exploration of the mystery of the woman chosen by God to give birth freely to the Christ.
