9780227174463: Gazing on God: Trinity, Church and Salvation in Orthodox Thought and Iconography

An exposition of Orthodox systematic theology, Gazing on God is written from the point of view of the experience of the faithful, drawing on traditional icons and liturgy. By tracing the depth of some key Christian concepts ―salvation, Logos, the Trinity― Andreas Andreopoulos provides a framework for the theology of experience. In the following chapters seven select icons are analyzed, in order to demonstrate the theological ideas and themes that may be revealed by studying Christianity through iconography. The analysis touches on topics such as time (the eternity of God, ‘flat' liturgical time), space, the Church as the Body of Christ, and the Trinity. Gazing on God offers to all Christian traditions a demonstration that, while our understanding of the development of Christian views and attitudes is guided by the history of theological ideas, Christianity includes from the beginning a strong dimension of meta-linguistic knowledge, which is expressed in its liturgy, as well as in its symbolism.

About the Author:

Revd Dr Andreas Andreopoulos is Reader in Orthodox Christianity at the University of Winchester. He has taught in universities in the UK, Canada and the USA. He has published numerous articles and several books such as 'Metamorphosis: The Transfiguration in Byzantine Theology and Iconography' (2005), 'The Sign of the Cross: the Gesture, the Mystery, the History' (2006), and 'This is my Beloved Son: the Transfiguration of Christ' (2012).

Review:

The author takes us through his exhibition of chosen icons and shows how they convey biblical and theological truth, and so incorporate us into the life of the church though meditative looking, The author uses illustrations from his native Greek culture, and this introduces an approach that maybe fresh and unfamiliar [...] He shows us not only that there are varied ways of appropriating the tradition of faith, but also that faith has to be expressed and communicated within a specific culture and that each age has to discover its own language, images and experiences, in order to express faith in a way that lives. (The Revd. Dr John Binns Church Times, (Sept, 2014))

Taking his readers through an exhilarating examination of the Divine Liturgy, Andreopoulos links its various elements with scripture, temple sacrifice, Greek tragedy, and even agriculture in order to draw some profound theological conclusions [...] Andreopoulos definitively succeeds in providing a unique exposition of the Orthodox faith by means of shared Orthodox experience. This book is well worth reading for anyone interested in the Orthodox Church, Orthodox Studies, or iconography in particular. (Andrew Blaski The Expository Times, Volume 126.11, August 2015)
