I was able to hear Fr. Hopko speak to a Copt reunion/retreat at the Antiochian Village this past weekend. Amazing fellow. To be able to stand and speak, at length, to a room full of lay people (and doctoral students who slipped in at the back!) without notes and keep all of us rapt… Just marvelous.
This is substantive. Theologoumena, yes; but still very substantive. As Kendall says: Read it all.
