Thomas Torrance and Orthodoxy

Matthew Baker at Fordham e-mailed me in late December about a new volume he has worked on, dealing with Orthodoxy and Thomas Torrance. The table of contents features an impressively diverse set of interlocutors--St. Athanasius the Great, St. Ephraim the Syrian, George Dion Dragas, Dumitru Staniloae, John Zizioulas, the Cappadocians, Georges Florovsky, and others. In his e-mail to me he tells me the following about this collection, which you may read here

The issue brings together scholars -- mostly Orthodox, but a couple Protestants and one RC too -- from 7 countries (Bulgaria, Denmark, England, Greece, Russia, Serbia, US) to explore and extend further different aspects of Torrance's engagement with the Fathers, science-theology dialogue, and modern Orthodox systematics. Among other things, the issue should gain attention for the essay we have included from Fr Nicholas Loudovikos, responding to Zizioulas' important paper on Maximus last fall in Belgrade.
