In Light from the East, Aidan Nichols has two main objectives: to identify a variety of dogmatic issues raised or discussed by Eastern Orthodox theology and to discover the character of the Eastern Orthodox tradition through a study of modern Orthodox dogmatic theologians.
Writing as a Catholic theologian himself, Nichols makes an important ecumenical contribution by offering this study of one tradition from the standpoint of another.
