John Zizioulas presents Christian doctrine as a comprehensive account of the freedom that results from relationship with God.

In this series of lectures John Zizioulas presents Christian doctrine as a comprehensive account of the freedom that results from relationship with God.In the Church man is sustained by the friendship that is shared by the triune persons of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The truth of this communion is not imposed, but experienced and freely passed on by the Church acting as a whole. Relationship is fundamental to all knowing, and but only knowledge freely given, by persons, does not reduce us to unfree objects.

The communion of the Church is the source not only of knowledge of God but of ourselves: within it we may emerge as irreplaceable individuals, who are freely able concede that others are constitutive of our very being.

The Son holds all creation in connection to God so that it receives life and the Eucharist is the point at which the good order of God emerges into creation.

The future is the whole reality of Christ, gently offered to us, so we may become free and willing participants.

The Fathers of the Eastern Church presented a more subtle account of act and being, unity and plurality that remains relatively unknown to the Western tradition.

Few other thinkers have succeeded in establishing that plurality and communion are as fundamental as this.

The whole lecture series lays out complex ideas with the utmost simplicity, illustrates the grandeur of Christian teaching, and is a profound exploration of freedom. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
