The first in-depth study of Gregory of Nyssa, this book shows how for Gregory the darkness of faith is what unites the believer with God. Through this union by faith alone, God yet speaks through the deeds and discourse of the believer. While the believer is immersed in the darkness of unknowing, they are also transformed in light. Laird alters the way in which we understand Gregory's mystical theology.

Gregory, as is now obvious, is highly nuanced theologian of faith and union, darkness and light. Laird's volume reads... well... and is clearly a major advance in the field. Kyle Strobel, Theology Forum Laird's superb study belongs in every university and seminary library. Nonna Verna Harrison, Journal of Early Christian Studies
