    Review quote
    "This is probably the best single-volume, general introduction to the Confessor available in English today."-"St Vladimir's Theological Quarterly, Nov 1998 "The chief merit of this work...is to make a significant number of Maximus's writings available in English translation.... Louth is to be congratulated for his clear and faithful renderings of some of the most difficult Greek theological works of late aniquity.... This is an excellent introduction to the theology of Maximus. It will be of interest to both students and specialists in the area of church history, Christology, anthropology, spiritulaity, medieval exegesis, and Byzantine studes."-"Anglican Theological Review "Andrew Louth...recounts his life, the upheavals through which he lived, the sources of his theology...and his teachings on the person of Christ "Heiser, Fall 1997.""Louth's "Maximus the Confessor contributes to our understanding of Maximus in two important ways: he translates for the first time into English several texts wherein Maximus addresses critical theological issues, and he introduces the reader lucidly and succinctly to Maximus's complex manner of thinking and his theological system."-"The Journal of Religion
