Review:

Andrew Louth's new book is a brilliant addition to anyones theology shelves and is a strong accessible and approachable book on Orthodox theology and it's modern primary thinkers.

It is a good solid collection of introductions and overviews of the theology of the main orthodox thinkers from 1782 onwards and covers the range of orthodoxy from russian through to greek.


The chapters are not overly long but are detailed and insightful enough to provide a very good introduction and basic understanding of modern orthodox thought.
I would class it as being very much in line with, and akin to, an undergrad preliminary text book.


I found it to be a very good and welcomed introduction to modern orthodox thinkers and theology that is sure to make a number of reading lists in the future.
