About-

This anthology begins with Bulgakov's own "Autobiographical Notes"--moving first-person accounts of his experiences. Then follow sections on economic ideals, religion, philosophy, and sociology. The closing section presents five sermons, all emphasizing the theme of joy.

Bulgakov himself is part of a distinct development of Russion religious philosophy which began with Alexei Khomiakov in the first half of the nineteenth century and which includes other important figures, such as Soloviev and Berdyaev. The developing tradition is both a reaction to certain themes and methods of Western philosophy and theology and an attempt to devise new interpretations of Eastern Orthodox Christianity, especially in the context of its historical development in Russian across the centuries. This developing school is characterized by its creativity, imagination, and daring. Its critical encounter with Marxism and the Russian revolution gives it peculiarly contemporary significance.

Since few of Bulgakov's writings have been available in English, this selection will interest all concerned with Russian secular and religious thought, and students of modern Christian movements.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"I believe that this is a most valuable [work] since it will make a variety of Bulgakov's writings available in one place. Some of these are not presently available at all to English-speaking readers, while other have been published previously but are quite difficult to locate.

"Given Bulgakov's concern for the ecumenical movement and his contributions to ecumenical discussion during his lifetime, I hope that many readers will find his work in this area useful and interesting, as well as learning from him about theological developments among the diaspora after the Russian revolution.

"I know from experience how difficult it is to find adequate material in this general field, as well as in relation to Bulgakov as one of its representatives. [This] volume would help to fill in the gap."
--Professor Bruce Rigdon of McCormick Theological Seminary
