I think I've said before, in earlier posts, that in my estimation the Orthodox "theologian" (if anyone can be called that before he has reposed for at least four centuries)of this generation is David Bentley Hart.

Only in English.

No, because I have neither read nor even perused a copy. I have struggled with the arguments I critiqued in various quarters, some in the ecumenicist milieu, others in more strident settings. I don't want to point fingers either, Maximus: I'll stick to the arguments as they stand, and not make the associations. Thanks for writing.

Isaac, I think I've said before, in earlier posts, that in my estimation the Orthodox "theologian" (if anyone can be called that before he has reposed for at least four centuries)of this generation is David Bentley Hart. I admire Fr. Behr's work immensely, and I need to read much more of him. Thanks for your kind remarks.

I do not mean to point a finger. But was this inspired by the Patriarch Bartholomew's new book?

Bless Father,

Just found your blog the other day and already it's become a favorite. I have nothing important to add to your excellent post, but maybe a few questions.

1) What are we to do with "modernizers" who have the de facto status of "theologian" in our Orthodox circles here in America? Are there any to "look out" for, in your opinion?

2) This is unrelated to the first question: Have you read anything of Fr. John Behr's (new dean of St. Vladimir's seminary)?
