The vital activity of Being With God is an research of the relation among apophaticism, trinitarian theology, and divine-human communion via a severe comparability of the trinitarian theologies of the jap Orthodox theologians Vladimir Lossky (1903–58) and John Zizioulas (1931–), arguably of the main influential Orthodox theologians of the prior century. Aristotle Papanikolaou indicates how an ontology of divine-human communion is on the heart of either Lossky's and Zizioulas's theological initiatives. He additionally indicates how, for either theologians, this middle trust is used as a self-identifying marker opposed to "Western" theologies. Papanikolaou keeps, although, that Lossky and Zizioulas carry profoundly various perspectives on the right way to conceptualize God because the Trinity. Their key distinction is over using apophaticism in theology ordinarily and particularly the relation of apophaticism to the doctrine of the Trinity. For Lossky, apophaticism is the significant precondition for a trinitarian theology; for Zizioulas, apophaticism has a way more limited position in theological discourse, and the God skilled within the eucharist isn't the God past being however the immanent lifetime of the trinitarian God.
