Publishers Description
Paul's letters to the Galatians, Ephesians and Philippians have struck an indelible impression on Christian tradition and piety. The doctrines of Christ, of salvation and of the church all owe their profiles to these letters. And for patristic interpreters, who read Scripture as a single book and were charged with an insatiable curiosity regarding the mysteries of the Godhead, these letters offered profound visions seldom captured by modern eyes. Trinitarian truth was patterned in the apostle's praise of God who is "over all, through all and in all" (Ephesians 4:6). Without a doubt, the greatest text in this collection of letters is the "Christ hymn" of Philippians 2:6-11. This commentary offers an unparalleled close-up view of the fathers weighing the words and phrases of this panoramic charting of the Savior's journey from preexistence, to incarnation, to crucifixion, to triumphant exaltation as universal Lord. This volume opens a treasury of resources for biblical study today. The expository voices of Jerome, Origen, Augustine, Chrysostom, Ambrosiaster, Theodoret, Marius Victorinus and Theodore of Mopsuestia speak again with eloquence and intellectual acumen, some in English translation for the first time.

Great tool for pastors and bible teachers  Sep 15, 2005
I have to differ from the other review on this book. I just finished preaching through Ephesians three months ago using this book. As a pastor who uses lots of commentaries and exegetes from the Greek text, I found the ease of using this tool very helpful. I can lay it open and compare what the ancients said about a phrase...and found many interesting thoughts that sometimes mirrored my own wonderings as I was wrestling with the Greek text. I've come to favor this as a tool that consistently gives me ideas that preach well...one just has to sometimes smooth out the verbage of the ancient commentators.

I'm almost done working through Philippians with this book...and it has stayed in my book bag for most of the last five months. The highest value I get from this book is usually a meditation on a phrase or word in scripture...from the perspective of an ancient Church leader...and that perspective sometimes opens up some of the most penetrating questions or statements I make in a sermon. For this point alone the book has proven to be a great resource.

It's really a meditation commentary more than a typical technical commentary. As you develop applications from your text exegesis this tool can be a fantastic tool. I'm hooked.

 
New Testament VOL. VIII  Feb 11, 2001
This collection of ancient "Christian" commentators is well done, it is on the NT books of GALATIANS, EPHESIANS and PHILIPPIANS. It is beautifully printed and formatted. The binding is a cheap glue injection, much of the volume does not lay open. Printed on acid-free paper, though not ANSI certified.

322 pages give the readings (comments) upon these 3 books by such notables as Chrysostom, Jerome, Ambrosisater, Hilary of Poitiers, Origen, Fulgentius, Theodoret, Augustine, et al. Most notable are comments by Marius Victorinus (which comments are not easy to examine elsewhere), his comments alone (even in translation) are worth the price of the book.

The text is nicely laid out, and is easy to use. But it is not for scholarly use (largely) as the comments are ALL translated into English, not in their original Greek or Latin. Too bad, if the original texts would have been added, then this would have been a 5 star book! As it is, one can only get a general idea of each commentators meanings -- being totally reliant upon the translations of the editors.

Such an ecumenical agenda, causes users to wonder why such and such a translation was made, certain Greek and Latin phrases were rendered in such a way as to be suspicious. Thus without the original texts, the work cannot be tested. Again too bad, as a collection in the original languages with English translation would have been very very useful.

Too general, too subdued. Pretty book though.
