Gregory of Nyssa: The Life of Moses (Classics of Western Spirituality)
New York, Paulist Press. 1978. (ISBN: 0809121123) Softcover. (Classics of Western Spirituality series) Translation, introduction and notes by Abraham J.Malherbe and Everett Ferguson. Introduction by John Meyendorff. This great spiritual master of the fourth century was born as the general persecution of Christians was ending. One of the Greek Cappadocian Fathers (the other two were Gregory's brother, St. Basil the Great, and their mutual friend, St. Gregory Nazianzen), Gregory has come to be regarded increasingly as the most brilliant and subtle thinker and most profound mystical teacher of the three.Gregory frames an immensely significant synthesis of the earlier Hellenistic and Jewish traditions in this work. He describes the spiritual ascent as taking place in three stages, symbolized by the Lords revelation of Himself to Moses, first in light, then in the cloud and, finally, in the dark. This translation and introduction, winner of the Christian Research Foundation Award, has been expertly rendered by Professors Abraham Malherbe of Yale University and Everett Ferguson of Abilene Christian University. 208p.
