New. This is a first-rate introduction not only to the theology of the Eastern Church but also to the presuppositions and methods along which it proceeds. Lossky claims that Orthodoxy maintains no clear distinction between theology and mysticism. ''All creatures are balanced upon the creative word of God, as if upon a bridge of diamond; above them is the abyss of the divine infinitude, below them that of their own nothingness. '' 252 pp.
