Vladimir Solovyov's Divine Sophia

In the upcoming spring issue of Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies, we will have a review by Robert Slesinski of

Judith Deutsch Kornblatt, Divine Sophia: The Wisdom Writings of Vladimir Solovyov, with annotated translations by Boris Jakim, JD Kornblatt, and Laury Magnus (Ithaca/London: Cornell U Press, 2009), xviii+297pp.

Slesinski, a scholar of Russian philosophy and theology, notes that this book is "striking for its manifest erudition" as well as its "utter handiness" for many reasons he articulates in his critically thoughtful review. He calls this a "highly recommended" book, especially to any and all interested in the Slavophiles in general, and the very influential thought and work of Solovyov in particular.

Look for the long review of Slesinski in the upcoming issue of the journal, to which you will want to subscribe here.
