Christopher Veniamin

“The purpose of the work in hand is to make more readily available certain of my papers and studies, which have appeared in various relatively little-known theological journals and other publications, all of which relate to the question of Salvation in the age-old and unbroken tradition of the Orthodox Christian Faith—the faith of the Patriarchs, Prophets, Apostles, Martyrs and Saints of our Lord, God and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The Orthodox Understanding of Salvation: ‘Theosis’ in Scripture and Tradition is thus divided into two parts. Part 1, Praxis, is comprised of papers delivered chiefly at retreats, clergy symposia and public lectures; while Part II, Theoria, is made up of articles, all of which (except for one) were based on my doctoral work on the meaning of the Transfiguration in the Fathers, carried out at Oxford University, under the supervision of His Eminence Kallistos Ware, Metropolitan of Diokleia, to whom I owe a great debt of gratitude. The last chapter of Part II, ‘On Becoming Theologians’, is added simply as ‘By Way of Conclusion’.”
