Fellow Workers with God: Orthodox Thinking On Theosis by Norman Russell
  • Description
  • Reviews

Asked about the Orthodox Christian doctrine of salvation, many people will hastily tell you that it has to do with “theosis” or “deification.” But few can explain what “theosis” actually means, and fewer still can do so with a broad and deep knowledge of the Church Fathers. Drawing on ancient and modern sources, and building on his magisterial study, The Doctrine of Deification in the Greek Patristic Tradition, Norman Russell here presents this teaching with breathtaking clarity without compromising its genuine complexity. This book stands out from others on the subject as a model of lucidity and reliability, and will enthrall specialists and non-specialists alike.

...a careful historical-theological analysis and comprehensive coverage of the major primary and secondary sources....providing the reader with a crisp, well-informed guide through the major issues. Paul M. Blowers, Emmanuel School of Religion

This is highly to be commended – [Russell] has managed an enviable feat for a writer – hitting a marvelous literary style and tone of approach....making high theology understandable. Fr. John McGuckin, Union Theological Seminary

Norman Russell is an independent scholar who has written widely on Orthodox themes, specializing in early Greek patristics and fourteenth-century hesychasm.
