    Not to post this repeatedly in too many topics, but since several people here are directly asking, you can get a copy of it now at

  2. David Richards says:

    I too would like a copy of God, History, and Dialectic.

  3. I would like a copy of Farrel’s books!!!

  4. Cosmo says:

    Jason, it was actually from St. Philip’s.

  5. AH says:

    I would gladly pay big $ for GHD! As a matter of fact I would Pay just for a photo copy..ahem.

  6. I would love to get “Free Choice” and “GHD.”

    God bless,

    P.S. – Nice hardcover copies of both would be great. 🙂

    Cosmo, was it from Blackwells? I ordered mine from Blackwells …

    Daniel, OK. But err, I’m pretty sure that many on this blog would like Dr. Farrell to have it published. I mean there’s plenty of literature on christology, filioque etc. but very few in systematic and integrated fashion on the philosophical and theological basis and implications of Orthodoxy in relation to the West, and coming from Dr. Farrell whose Free Choice is also a timeless classic and rare work in its own right …

  8. Cosmo says:

    I gladly paid $62 for Free Choice in Maximus plus shipping from England, and I would do the same for GHD if I had to.

    Where is Farrell teaching now?

  9. Jason,

    It is unobtainable, at least until Dr. Farrell decides to publish the work. The only people who have working copies are his grad seminar students and a few friends.

    Perhaps it would be in the interest of readers of this blog and for Dr. Farrell himself to run a poll on those hard to obtain works of Dr. Farrell. How many people would be interested in obtaining such works like “Free Choice” and “GHD?”

    How do I get hold of Dr. Joseph Farrell’s God, History, and Dialectic: The Theological Foundations of the Two Europes and Their Cultural Consequences, since it’s not available from Amazon or any others? Can I contact St. Tikhon? Is that where Dr. Farrell is right now?

    You cannot access the parish photos on your church’s website, so I guess we will have to take your word on it. By the way, you left the “a” out of the last sentence.
