This Pentecostal has recently started studying Reformed theology. I expect to not agree with everything, but I think this endeavor will be worthwhile.

Five Great Works of Russian Literature & Theology

Check out some great Russian works you may have missed:

Notes from the House of the Dead by Fyodor Dostoevsky

Long before Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago came Dostoevsky’s Notes from the House of the Dead, a compelling account of the horrific conditions in Siberian labor camps. First published in 1861, this novel, based on Dostoevsky’s own experience as a political prisoner, is a forerunner of his famous novels Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov.

Icons and the Name of God by Sergius Bulgakov

In Orthodox theology both the icon and the name of God transmit divine energies, theophanies, or revelations that imprint God’s image within us. In Icons and the Name of God renowned Orthodox theologian Sergius Bulgakov explains the theology behind the Orthodox veneration of icons and the glorification of the name of God. In the process Bulgakov covers two major controversies — the iconoclastic controversy (sixth to eighth centuries) and the “Name of God” controversy (early twentieth century) — and explains his belief that an icon stops being merely a religious painting and becomes sacred when it is named. This translation of two essays “The Icon and Its Veneration” and “The Name of God” — available in English for the first time — makes Bulgakov’s rich thinking on these key theological concepts available to a wider audience than ever before.

Head over to EerdWord to read about The Meaning of Life by S. L. Frank; The Justification of the Good by Vladimir Solovyov; and God as Love by Johannes Miroslav Oravecz.

For future reference.
