  1. The Apocalypse of Saint John : A Revelation of Love and Power

    The Apocalypse of Saint John : A Revelation of Love and Power

    $24.95

    The Book of Revelation has inspired controversy ever since it was written in the first century. It was the last book to be accepted into the New Testament canon, and today a myriad of mutually contradictory end-times speculations claim to be based on its teachings. Fr. Lawrence Farley provides a sober, patristic interpretation that reads Revelation in its proper context of Jewish apocalyptic literature. He demonstrates that the most important lesson we can learn from Revelation today is the need to remain faithful in a time of widespread hostility to the Christian faith. Learn More
  2. The Kingdom of God as Liturgical Empire: A Theological Commentary on 1-2 Chronicles

    The Kingdom of God as Liturgical Empire: A Theological Commentary on 1-2 Chronicles

    $33.95

    Out of stock

    In The Kingdom of God as Liturgical Empire bestselling author and theologian Scott Hahn views the author of Chronicles as the first biblical theologian. Chronicles, argues Hahn, offers the first attempt to understand and interpret the entire sweep of Old Testament history from the creation of the world to the Israelites' return from exile. Thus Hahn's commentary presents 1-2 Chronicles as a liturgical and theological interpretation of Israel's history. Hahn emphasizes the liturgical structure and content of Chronicles and provides fresh insight on salvation history: past, present, and future. He also shows how Chronicles provides important insights into key New Testament concepts. The book gives professors, students, and pastors a better understanding of Chronicles, salvation history, and makes a significant contribution to teh growing field of Old Testament theological interpretation.

  3. Explanation of the Epistle of St Paul to the Galatians by Blessed Theophylact of Ochrid

    Explanation of the Epistle of St Paul to the Galatians by Blessed Theophylact of Ochrid

    $19.95

    This volume contains Blessed Theophylact’s commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians. Although St. Paul wrote this letter to address the particular issue of circumcision that was troubling the young churches of Galatia, its purpose goes much deeper. A central theme of the Epistle is the question of the essence of the Christian life—is it based on correct practices or on faith? St. Paul explains the purpose of the Judaic law, and the necessity of moving beyond its practice to the new, very different life based on faith in Christ. The depth of the Apostle’s care for his flock is evident as he strives to draw them away from the old understanding of sin, into the new knowledge of the glory and love of Christ. Learn More
  4. Bede the Venerable : Commentary on the Seven Catholic Epistles

    Bede the Venerable : Commentary on the Seven Catholic Epistles

    $39.95

    Out of stock

    Best known in the Middle Ages as a scriptural exegete, Bede here provides a running gloss on the Letters of James, Peter, John, and Jude. Why he chose these `lesser letters' for his first attempt at written exegesis no one knows; perhaps he did so because so few other scriptural commentators had glossed them. They are unique in that he inclined more to the literal interpretation of the text than he did in his more allegorical later commentaries. Preachers will find them useful; readers will find them illuminating. Learn More

  8. Long-Suffering Love : A Commentary on Hosea with Patristic Annotations

    Long-Suffering Love : A Commentary on Hosea with Patristic Annotations

    $29.95

    This is a substantial work on a most difficult prophetic book. Pentiuc probes carefully and thoroughly into the many problems of interpretation Hosea poses, grammatical and textual, historical, literary, and theological. And he does so drawing on a very wide acquaintance with the ancient sources, both Biblical and non-Biblical, and with classical and modern scholarship, all in a variety of languages. Particularly valuable, indeed a distinctive contribution of Pentiuc's work, is the extensive use of the commentaries of the ancient Church Fathers on Hosea. As Pentiuc shows, these remain fresh and provocative, offering readers a rich array of insights, especially into the meaning of Hosea for the nature of God and His ways with humanity.
