"Let books be your dining table, / And you shall be full of delights. / Let them be your
And you shall sleep restful nights" (St. Ephraim the Syrian).

Oxford University Press continues to bring out a helpful series of Handbooks on a variety of religious and theological topics (among many others). Recent offering include Jerry Walls, ed., The Oxford Handbook of Eschatology (OUP, 2010), 742pp.

Contributions to this volume of particular interest to Eastern Christians include

  • Chapter 5: Eschatology in the Early Church Fathers by Brian Daley
  • Chapter 12: Eastern Orthodox Eschatology by Andrew Louth
  • Chapter 19: Church, Ecumenism, and Eschatology by Douglas Farrow
  • Chapter 25: Universalism by Thomas Talbot

But the whole volume seems to be a rich feast and I look forward to seeing it reviewed in Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies.
