Yves Congar, once described Zizioulas as one of the most original and most profound theologians of our time.
Fr. Justin Popovich (in 1975) once said: John Zizioulas is one of the most profound young theologians I've ever met. --Yves Congar & Fr. Justin Popovich<br /><br />As John Meyendorff asserted John Zizioulas is actually dealing with with the most contemporary , the most urgent, the most existential issues facing the Orthodox Church today.
Bishop Kallistos of Diokleia: Metropolitan John Zizioulas is generally recognized as the most brilliant and creative theologian in the Orthodox Church today.

About the Author

His Excellency the Most Reverend John (Zizioulas) of Pergamon is a modern theologian and Metropolitan of Pergamon, in the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. He was born in Greece, January 10, 1931. He began his studies at the University of Thessaloniki, but received his undergraduate degree in theology from the University of Athens in 1955, where he also later received a degree of Doctor of Theology. Metropolitan John s education included a period of study under the Eastern Orthodox theologian Father Georges Florovsky at Harvard Divinity School. He received his M.T.S. at Harvard in 1956 and was a Fellow at Dumbarton Oaks Center for Byzantine Studies. He received a doctorate in theology from the University of Athens in 1965. His doctoral thesis on the bishop in the early Church was recently published in English as Eucharist, Bishop, Church: The Unity of the Church in the Divine Eucharist and the Bishop During the First Three Centuries. Somewhat later, he studied in Chicago, and taught theology at the University of Edinburgh for a period, before becoming Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Glasgow, where he held a personal chair in systematic theology for some fourteen years. In addition, he went on to be Visiting Professor at the University of Geneva, King s College London, and the Gregorian University, Rome. He was also a part-time professor at the University of Thessaloniki. He was consecrated as a bishop on June 22, 1986, and named Metropolitan of Pergamon. He has represented the Ecumenical Patriarchate on international Church bodies for many years. Metropolitan John is a member of the committees for dialogue with the Roman Catholic Church, and with the Anglican Church, and was Secretary of Faith and Order at the World Council of Churches in Geneva, where he gradually came to be recognized as one of the most influential Orthodox theologians of our times. His ecumenical involvement has led him to publish a number of articles and studies in various periodicals. Some of his books are L Etre ecclesial (Paris: Labor et Fides, 1981), Being as Communion: Studies in Personhood and the Church (Crestwood, NY: St. Vladimir s Seminary Press, 1985), Communion and Otherness (2006), Lectures in Christian Dogmatics (2008). John Zizioulas is widely recognized as the most significant Orthodox theologian of the last half century and an acclaimed advocate of a true ecumenism, based on the faith and theology of the early Church. From his in-depth knowledge of the intellectual resources of the Church, Zizioulas has argued that the Church Fathers represent a profound account of freedom and community, which presents a radical challenge to modern accounts of the person. Zizioulas uses the work of the Fathers to make an important distinction between the person, who is defined by communion, and the individual, who defines himself in isolation from others, and who sees community as a threat to his freedom. Zizioulas argues that God is the origin of freedom and community, and that the Christian Church is the place in which the person and freedom come into being. This volume offers a collection of Zizioulas articles which have appeared mostly in English, and which present his trinitarian doctrine of God, as well as his theological account of the Church as the place in which freedom and communion are actualized.
