Clément's Transfiguring Time is an early work, written when he was 37. It carries all the excitement of his fresh encounter with Orthodoxy and the Fathers of the Christian Church. He draws on his deep study of Hinduism, Buddhism and Indian myths to differentiate the understanding of time and eternity in archaic religions, in Hinduism and in Buddhism, from the Christian and specifically Orthodox understanding of time and eternity. This new translation – the first one in English - wants to bring Clément's early work to a new generation of readers.

What People are Saying About This
“This wonderful early essay by Olivier Clément is a revelation, a great discovery. In a word I would call it a “springtime,” a look at God's relationship with us that is fresh, surprising in the best sense, even shocking. Enjoy the feast of riches!”
“Olivier Clément is one of the really original Christian minds of the last generation, poetic, visionary, and profound. His work is still exceptionally fresh, offering an exhilarating sense of the scale and beauty of traditional Christianity for our era, and it needs to be far more widely known. This fine translation of an early work of his shows the quality of his mind and imagination and I hope it will whet the appetite of many readers to discover more.”
