The first translation into English of a magnificent verse-by-verse commentary on Saint Luke’s Gospel by one of the greatest exegetes of the Orthodox Church in the West. An essential resource for clergy and laity alike, this is a valuable addition to the steadily growing body of Patristic Biblical interpretation in English translation. No less than fourteen Icons, drawn from such centers as Sinai, Georgia, Novgorod, Patmos, and Ravenna, are reproduced in this book.

“I undertook this translation of...[Saint Ambrose’s]....Exposition of Saint Luke as a holy task. I have worked with this text for four years and have come to know the man who wrote it as a beloved friend. How could I not? Saint Ambrose strikes me as a holy man, with a clear legal mind. He is demanding of himself and of those who would understand his thought. He used all of his talents: those of an aristocrat with an excellent education, of a lawyer, a governor, a Bishop, and a man of authority who must rebuke the proud and be an example to the humble. By the same token, he expects us to use all of our talents, to ponder and partake of his words, to learn from them, to apply them to our own lives, to think clearly, and to do our best.”
