Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Excellent Overview of the Doctrine of Deification in Early Christianity  Jan 23, 2007
The Divinization of the Christian According to the Greek Fathers is an English translation of Jules Gross' PhD Dissertation. Although a little aged, this work is invaluable to any students interested in the doctrine of deification in the early Fathers. Gross includes a brief overview of the doctrine in the Old and New Testaments, but the heart of his work focuses on this subject in the Fathers, which is where he excels. This monograph is by no means comprehensive, but it is a tremendous resource for those interested in the subject.
 
Primary Reference Work on Theology of Deification  Aug 18, 2005
Since its publication in French in 1938, Gross's book has been the primary reference work on deification in the period of Greek patristics. The book contains a compilation and translation of over 1.250 texts on deification, which inform the author's analysis of the doctrine's development from the apostolic fathers to John of Damascus. It is a work of impressive scholarship that draws upon all the major critical editions of the texts.

»The Divinization of the Christian« demonstrates how widely the conception of theosis was held in the early church and the role that it played in the major christological and pneumatological debates of the time. For scholars who are working in the fields of patristics or historical theology, this is an indispensable resource. For scholars in biblical studies, a substantial section also is devoted to the origins of the doctrine in the Bible and in pseudepigraphical writings.

Those familiar with the original work in French will find that the scholarly apparatus has been completely updated and a number of new features added, including a table of authors and works, a biblical index, and an extensive subject index.
