In this video I discuss my favorite Orthodox book, "The Triads," by Saint Gregory Palamas. It is the best defense of true Christian Mysticism that I have ever read. St. Gregory brings up many topics in the course of this book and the topics are extremely relevant to current theological discussions. Topics include, natural law/theology, grace, the essence/energy distinction, the Light of Transfiguration, creation, an Orthodox epistemology and how we can experience God. There are a few translations in English, but in this video I discuss the full translation by Fr. Peter Chamberas.
