“This is an important and in many ways path-breaking book that brings the ethics of St. Maximus the Confessor into conversation with modern ethics, philosophy, and theology more generally. Among the book’s central projects is a far-reaching corrective of the nature/person antimony characteristic of many modern ‘personalist’ theologies. The Confessor’s virtue ethics, his doctrine of analogy, teleology/eschatology, and love are among the themes that are treated with superb insight and originality. This is the first major study of the Confessor’s ethics, and will undoubtedly serve as essential reading on the subject for many years to come.” — Very Rev. Dr. Maximos Constas
