Dumitru Staniloae - Experienta lui Dumnezeu - Romana si Engleza - (Vol. VI)


 In timpul lunii noiembrie, luna in care s-a nascut Parintele Staniloae in a 16-a zi in urma cu 110 ani, acum cand anul comemorativ dedicat dansului la 20 de ani de la trecerea la cele vesnice se apropie de sfarsit, apare la Editura Holy Cross din Statele Unite ale Americii volumul 6 si ultimul din seria The Experience of God (Experienta lui Dumnezeu) ce cuprinde versiunea in limba engleza a Dogmaticii celui mai mare teolog roman din toate timpurile, traducere dusa la bun sfarsit de Pr. Ioan Ionita. Volumul este intitulat The Fulfillment of Creation (Implinirea Creatiei).
 
            Mitropolitul Kallistos de Diokleia scrie in Prefata la acest volum: "Cu publicarea volumului 6 din Experienta lui Dumnezeu, Editura Ortodoxa Holy Cross incheie proiectul inceput in 1994: traducerea integrala in engleza a Teologiei Dogmatice Ortodoxe a Protopresbiterului Dumitru Staniloae (1903-1993). Metoda dansului nu este nicidecum 'dogmatica' intr-un sens autoritar. El nu se multumeste niciodata de a declara in mod simplu adevaruri propozitionale intr-un fel doctrinar, ci cauta sa expuna ratiunile ce stau la baza invataturii Bisericii, aratand logica launtrica a credintei Ortodoxe, unitatea si coerenta ei precum si relevanta personala ce o are pentru trairea crestina cotidiana.

            Acest al saselea si ultim volum din Experienta lui Dumnezeu are ca subiect ceea ce in teologia Occidentala sunt numite 'cele patru lucruri de pe urma': moartea, judecata, cerul si iadul. Parintele Dumitru sustine ca viata aceasta de acum reprezinta pentru fiecare din noi timpul alegerii decisive; si totusi exista in acelasi timp un progres dupa moarte. Credinta [dansului] neclintita in inviere—in biruinta ultima a vietii asupra mortii—confera intelegerii de catre Parintele Dumitru a lucrurilor de pe urma o nota accentuata de speranta.
            Completarea cu succes a traducerii in engleza a Teologiei Dogmatice Ortodoxe este o realizare remarcabila. Aceasta va constitui pentru multi ani de acum inainte un izvor inestimabil pentru toti cei care cauta sa patrunda mai adanc in sensul launtric al Ortodoxiei."
          During the month of November, the month of Fr. Staniloae's birth on the 16th day 110 years ago, as the commemorative year dedicated to him 20 years after his passing into eternal life comes to a close, Holy Cross Orthodox Press publishes the 6th and final volume of The Experience of God, which comprises the English version of the Dogmatic Theology of the greatest Romanian theologian of all times, a translation successfully completed by Fr. Ioan Ionita. The volume is entitled The Fulfillment of Creation.

Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia writes in his Forward to this volume:

"With the publication of the sixth volume of The Experience of God, Holy Cross Orthodox Press has brought to completion a project begun in 1994: the integral translation into English of the Orthodox Dogmatic Theology by Archpriest Dumitru Staniloae (1903–1993). His approach is by no means 'dogmatic' in an authoritarian sense. He is never content simply to state propositional truths in a doctrinaire fashion, but he seeks to expound the reasons that underlie the Church’s teaching, indicating the inner logic of the Orthodox faith, its unity and coherence, and likewise its personal relevance to daily Christian living.

This sixth and final volume of The Experience of God has as its subject what in Western theology are termed 'the four last things': death, judgment, heaven, and hell. Fr. Dumitru maintains that, for each one of us, this present life is the time of decisive choice, and yet at the same time there is progress after death. [His] unshakeable faith in the resurrection—in the conclusive victory of life over death—confers on Fr. Dumitru’s understanding of the last things a resounding note of hope.

The successful completion of the English translation of the Orthodox Dogmatic Theology is a notable achievement. For many years to come it will form an invaluable resource for all who seek to enter more deeply into the inner meaning of Orthodoxy."
