  1. Bee Day

    One of the most elegant and inspirational metaphysical philosophical books out there Florensky s argument of what Truth is makes it a captivating and interesting read I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about the ancient Christian Orthodox way.

  2. Paul

    Literally the greatest single work of Christian theology written in the East or West since the Summa Theologiae All the impressive given that it was Florensky s doctoral dissertation This book is the reason that I hope to learn Russian one day though Jakim is a very able translator.
