Synopsis:
The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture does what very few of today's students of the Bible could do for themselves. With the aid of computer technology, the vast array of writings from the church fathers—including many that are available only in the ancient languages—have been combed for their comment on Scripture. From these results, scholars with a deep knowledge of the fathers and a heart for the church have hand selected material for each volume, shaping, annotating and introducing it to today's readers. Each portion of commentary has been chosen for its salient insight, its rhetorical power and its faithful representation of the consensual exegesis of the early church. Included here from series editor Tom C. Oden is the full text of twelve commentaries from the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture:
  • Genesis 1—11
  • Genesis 12—50
  • Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy
  • The Twelve Prophets
  • Matthew 1—13
  • Matthew 14—28
  • Mark
  • Luke
  • Romans
  • 1-2 Corinthians
  • Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians
  • Colossians, 1-2 Thessalonians, 1-2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon
Arranged canonically, each volume allows the living voices of the church in its formative centuries to speak as they engage the sacred page of Scripture. Now even more accessible in digital format, this series will prove an uncommon companion for theological interpretation, spiritual reading, and wholesome teaching and preaching. System Requirements: Requires Mac OS 7.1 through 9. Built for Mac OS X or PC with Mac emulator.
