I have used this book extensively in my own study and have found it a fantastic jumping off point, since he has extensive footnotes to the Fathers, theologians and reformers, and he almost always provides a full quotation in the footnotes in the original language after he translates it in the main body of the text. Also be warned that this edition is a copy of the original text, so some pages are a little faded and there is brief underlining by a previous owner, who provided the "proof pages", but they are minimal and neatly scribed. I have found no pages missing, although the publisher's preface warns of it. I think that it must be a general disclaimer. Something that I thought could have been made much more of is the Eastern doctrine of deification (theosis), since that is to my mind the heart of eastern soteriology, and I provide a link to a book on that subject below.Read more ›
The one saving feature of this purchase is that you get a free PDF download of the original book in facsimile. Be warned, however, that the PDF file is totally locked, so that there's absolutely NOTHING you can do as a researcher except read the text. You can't highlight text in your copy (such as yellow highlighting); you can't copy any text to be pasted elsewhere; etc. None of this, at least not in Adobe Reader X.
For these reasons, I wouldn't recommend purchasing this book. Too bad, because as reviewer #1 points out, this is an important work for anyone studying this important historical topic.
