War and Christianity: From the Russian Point of View: Three Conversations (New)

Please inquire for availability
This original translation of a key prophetic and apocalyptic work, written by Russia's greatest philosopher at the end of the nineteenth century, characterizes in bold strokes and with astonishing prescience the challenges that mankind faces as 'progress' races to bring history to an end, calling us to vigilance and resistance to evil. The passing of more than a century since it was first written has not caused this remarkable text to lose any of its lustre; indeed, it is more relevant today than when it was first penned. Solovyov describes three main trends of his (and our) time: economic materialism, Tolstoyan abstract moralism, and the kind of hubris that has grown so rampant in contemporary society. For him, over a century ago, the first was all too present, and about to explode in the rise of the Communist State. A hollow moralism, or a 'meaning' with no core, was beginning to develop and would soon replace almost all vestiges of traditional values. As for hubris, greed, and evil well-disguised as good, this is the touchstone of society at the turn of the twentieth to the twenty-first century, and is precisely what Solovyov describes as the apocalyptic precursor of the Antichrist.
Vladimir Solovyov (1853-1900), one of the greatest philosophers of the nineteenth century. He helped establish a rich tradition of Russian spirituality, inspiring a whole generation of thinkers, who followed his many-faceted spirit into diverse realms, bringing together philosophy, mysticism, theology, poetry, and powerful visionary experience with a trenchant social message. Solovyov was also a prophet, having been granted three visions of Sophia, Divine Wisdom.
