    Stratford Caldecott was a fine and generous writer.
    His collection of essays, The Radiance of Being, is a testament to the range and depth of his interests. His reading of Eckhart, in particular, is quite interesting — the most orthodox and eschatologically oriented, rather than a precursor of German idealism and a return to the same.

    I would think Christian non-dualism is more like the Vishishta-Advaita (Non-Dualism with Particulars Intact) Vedanta of Sri Ramanuja, rather than the Advaita Vedanta of Sri Adi Sankara. Vishishta-Advaita posits One Reality, but creation and persons are also real; there is always a distinction in the midst of Unity, allowing for an interpersonal devotional relationship between Brahman as Divine Person and the human person.
