Bride of the Lamb
Sergius Bulgakov (1871-1944) was the 20th-century's foremost Russian Orthodox theologian. The Bride of the Lamb is widely regarded as Bulgakov's magnum opus and one of the greatest works produced in the modern Orthodox church. The book is available in an English translation by Boris Jakim, complete with an introduction to Bulgakov and his theological context. For readers new to Russian religious thought, the book presents a new approach to Christian doctrine. Bulgakov examines issues of ecclesiology and eschatology from a sophiological perspective. This distinctive Russian approach, based on the doctrine of Sophia, the wisdom of God, sees the Creator and creation intimately linked as divine-humanity. The book explores the nature of created beings, the relationship between God and the world, the role of the church, and such eschatological themes as the second coming of Jesus, resurrection and judgment, and the afterlife.
