Devil And Pierre Gernet$28.99Add to cart
David Bentley Hart – author of The Beauty of the Infinite and The Doors of the Sea – turns his theological imagination to narrative fiction in this collection of four short stories and one novella. Anticipating questions about his shift in genre, Hart writes that “God is no more likely (and a good deal less likely) to be found in theology than in poetry and fiction.” Far from simple allegory, however, these stories beguile and entrance the reader because of Hart’s engrossing, opulent writing style and the deep theological and philosophical questions he raises. Occasionally flabbergasting, often bedazzling, sometimes heartbreaking, and ultimately mesmerizing, these stories are wide ranging in context and scope but united by a common thread of haunting religious and philosophical questions about this life and the next. This powerful collection will engage both the mind and the heart.
Justification Of The Good$47.99Add to cart
Translated by Nathalie A. Duddington
Edited and annotated by Boris Jakim
Foreword by David Bentley Hart
After passing through deism, pantheism, and sundry atheistic visions of life, Vladimir Solovyov emerged as a Christian thinker of irrepressible conviction and uncommon genius. The Justification of the Good, one of Solovyov’s last and most mature works, presents a profound argument for human morality based on the world’s longing for and participation in God’s goodness.
In the first part of the book Solovyov explores humanity’s inner virtues and their full reality in Christ, weaving his moral philosophy with threads drawn from Orthodox theology. In the second part Solovyov discusses the practical implications of Christian goodness for such areas as nationalism, war, economics, legal justice, and family.
This edition of The Justification of the Good reproduces the English edition of 1918 and is the only new publication of this work since that date. The book includes explanatory footnotes by esteemed scholar Boris Jakim and a bibliography, compiled by Jakim, of Solovyov’s major philosophical and religious works.
