After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY

from a book review:

...From such an example, an Orthodox reader might gain a greater appreciation for the value of Fr. Michael Pomazansky's Orthodox Dogmatic Theology .  Here is a book full of what Fr. Seraphim Rose called the authentic "savor" of truly a modern link with the Holy Fathers. In his book we may clearly come in contact with the genuine Orthodox theology and the fullness of the wealth of the teaching of the Church.  Reading it, one not only learns the dogmatic essentials, one is also inspired, warmed by the divine fire of faith and piety, and lifted up toward a vision of our heavenly homeland. This book is written in the spirit and tone of St. Gregory the New Theologian, St. Symeon the New Theologian, and St. John of Kronstadt.  In a time when even the greater part of the Orthodox world is succumbing to the sway of modernity, this book is not just indispensable.  It is a gift of grace.  It deserves the widest possible distribution.
