That's a great insight... I think we in the West have ignored the theology of the Eastern church for far too long. Especially in the post-modern context (whatever that means), I think Eastern Christianity can offer an interesting corrective to Western Christianity, as tied up as it is in modernism and mediaevalism. My understanding of Eastern theology has been that it is somewhat more holistic and less obsessed with defining and categorizing than the West, which makes it another interesting influence on Christianity in the post-modern, post-foundational, holistic context we find ourselves in. To be certain, there's a lot we don't want to take from Eastern Christianity as well, but I think the time has come in the West to start seriously considering how we can incorporate Eastern theology into our Western/post-Western mindsets...
