Hi Rick

I am reading the paper now, and following one of the early notes I see a reference to this work,

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=DDb5lGnf39MC&printsec=frontcover&dq=Jonathan+Edwards:+Philosophical+Theologian#PPR5,M1">http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=DDb5 ... an#PPR5,M1</a><!-- m -->

which contains a chapter on Edwards and Divinization, which I will read with interest a little later.

This volume is edited by Oliver Crisp with whom I have corresponded a little in regard to the 'sinful nature' of Christ. I remember that he has a great interest in Edwards.

Dear Father Peter,

Thanks for sharing that with me. I read what was there of chapter 11 in the link you supplied and it is somewhat funny to me to consider what Constantinople has in common with Northhampton. I thought it was interesting, in light of my friends paper, to read that just as Maximos was charged with Pantheism, so was Edwards. I guess it is as the author of the essay in chapter 11 says, 'when a certain language/vocabulary is used it is easy to be misunderstood.'

Well, I thought I might give you a treat (in terms of what 'it' might look like) via "Maximos and Edwards;" but, as I can see you have already had an introduction to some of this thinking by way of "Palamas and Edwards." I think there are more than a few who would love to see a common ground which includes the Orthodox and the Reformers (and others) Smile.

Thanks again.

In Christ,
Rick

How are you finding they cope with your Orthodoxy? Are they hostile towards it?
