The doctrine of deification in the Greek patristic tradition by Norman Russell( Book )

26 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deification in the Greek patristic tradition was the fulfillment of the destiny for which humanity was created--not merely salvation from sin but entry into the fullness of the divine life of the Trinity. This book, the first on the subject for over sixty years, traces the history of deification from its birth as a second-century metaphor with biblical roots to its maturity as a doctrine central to the spiritual life of the Byzantine Church. Drawing attention to the richness and diversity of the patristic approaches from Irenaeus to Maximus the Confessor, Norman Russell offers a full discussion of the background and context of the doctrine, at the same time highlighting its distinctively Christian character"--Provided by publisher
