Orthodox Readings of Augustine Book Out

I attended the conference for no clear reason in particular.  Perhaps I wanted to become Orthodox.  Maybe it was just the fun of social Trinitarianism.  It might have only been the opportunity to wander the Big Apple with Joel Garver.

Whatever the reason for going, being a spectator at the event itself was instrumental in my becoming overwhelming Augustinian in theology proper.  It gave me the ingredients for future Trinitarian study, and it has perhaps contributed to some of the most fundamental aspects of my current theology.  I’m more Reformed and Augustinian now than ever before.

So it is definitely cool to see that the book is finally out. Now I can actually see David Hart’s lecture, since he didn’t get to actually give the real one.  I suspect it is nearly the same as the one he gave at Calvin College a little later.

Now, to be sure, the book will have defenders of anti-Augustinianism, including the Palamites.  I was told, however, that Bradshaw was the only “Truly Orthodox” presenter there.  So we’ll just have to see.  The general consensus, though, seemed to militate strongly against Palamism’s narrative of Augustine and the West.
