Item Description...
Overview
Sergius Bulgakov is widely considered to be the twentieth century's foremost Orthodox theologian, and his book The Comforter is an utterly comprehensive and profound study of the Holy Spirit. Encyclopedic in scope, The Comforter explores all aspects of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, as they are viewed in the Orthodox tradition and throughout church history. The book has sections on the development of the doctrine of the Spirit in early Christianity and on the development of the doctrine of procession in the patristic and later Byzantine periods. It also touches on the place of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity and explores Old and New Testament notions of the Spirit of God. A concluding chapter deals with the mystical revelation of the Holy Spirit. Made available in English through the work of Boris Jakim, today's premier translator of Russian theology and philosophy into English, Bulgakov's Comforter in this edition is a major publishing event.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Continues a marvellous series  Sep 10, 2009
The Holy Spirit is notoriously ignored by systematic theologians, and this book furthers the discussion on the important area of pneumatology. Bulgakov begins by untangling the Filioque question, and then unfolds the intricate relationships between the work of the Son and the Spirit in the creation and redemption of the world. His twin thematic concepts of Divine-humanity and Sophia are again deployed to masterful effect in making sense of traditional difficulties in understanding the powerful yet invisible presence of the Spirit. His conclusions are remarkably similar to those put forward by Jurgen Moltmann fifty years later (eg. The Spirit of Life), though with infinitely more conceptual clarity than Moltmann is capable of. My favourite sections are his insightful description of asceticism and audacity in 'life in the Spirit', and his grand cosmic vision of the meaning of Pentecost. The Epilogue on The Father is epic theological poetry. A treasure.

O Comforter, Spirit of Truth, make Your abode in my heart.
