About the Author

Radu Bordeianu is a Romanian Orthodox theologian, Assistant Professor of Systematics at Duquesne University, in Pittsburgh, USA. His research focuses on ecumenical ecclesiologies - especially the dialogue between the Orthodox and Catholic churches - trinitarian studies, theology of creation, and environmental issues.


Bordeianu's book is an invaluable addition to the growing body of scholarship on the theology of the most important Romanian Orthodox theologian, the late Fr. Dumitru Staniloae. Through his vast knowledge of Staniloae's corpus in its original language, but also his use of eastern and western scholarship and methodologies, Bordeianu argues convincingly that Staniloae accomplished a "neo-patristic synthesis," as proposed by another Orthodox theologian, Georges Florovsky, drawing on insights from the Church Fathers to provide answers to contemporary questions. Bordeianu also demonstrates that Staniloae's theology can be used fruitfully in the ecumenical dialogue especially between the Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches. -- Lucian Turcescu, Professor of Theology, Concordia University, Canada. One of his most recent books is Religion and Politics in Post-Communist Romania (2007)
In contemporary Orthodox theology, Dumitru Staniloae is one of the most profound and original Orthodox theologians, yet one of the most neglected. Radu Bordeianu offers the clearest and most thorough introduction to date of Staniloae's theology, paving the way for the appropriation of Staniloae's thought in theological discussions on Trinity, Christology, grace, theological anthropology, spirituality, eschatology and ecclesiology. Bordeianu also convincingly shows how Staniloae's understanding of the relation between the Trinity and the Church can constructively advance the ecumenical conversations on communion ecclesiology. Informative, constructive and insightful throughout, this book is a must read for all Christian theologians. -- Aristotle Papanikolaou, Associate Professor of Theology and an Associate Chair for Undergraduate Studies, Co-Founding Director, Orthodox Christian Studies Program, Fordham University, USA
