Reviews - What do our customers think?
Makes the Complexities of Nyssen's Thought Accessible  Nov 21, 2005
Taking Dr. Smith's graduate seminar on the theology of the Cappadocians first alerted me to his skill as a pedagogue. After perusing a few chapters of his book, I now know that this dexterity extends from the classroom to his ability as an author. Dr. Smith makes Gregory of Nyssa, a pedantic Neoplatonic aristocrat and bishop of fourth-century Cappadocia, actually understandable. The chapters of his book are well-defined, articulate, and unambiguous. Furthermore, an appendix for discussion makes this book a candidate for study-groups, whether under the auspices of the church, or for personal use.
I highly recommend this book as an introduction to Nyssen's theological anthropology. Don't be fooled by the title, though. The book, faithful to it subject matter, covers much more than just theological anthropology. This topic bleeds into many others, and thus it serves as an oblique introduction to many other aspects of Nyssen's thought, and late antique Christian Neoplatonism in general.
