Item Description...
Overview
Let the wisdom of the early church inform your reading of Scripture! This helpful commentary parallels the RSV text with spiritual and intellectual insights from the early church fathers. Patristic commentators such as Eusebius, Irenaeus, Tertullian, and Origen bring rhetorical power and consensual exegesis to critical issues of Christian faith and practice, such as confronting heresies and persecution.

Publishers Description
A 2001 Christianity Today Award of Merit winner Because the Catholic Epistles focus on orthodox faith and morals, the Fathers drew on them as a means of defense against the rising challenge of heretics. This factor gave these letters a freshness and relevance to conditions in the fourth and fifth centuries that might otherwise seem surprising. Many of the Fathers unabashedly saw in them anticipatory attacks on Marcion and strong defenses against the Arians. They did so quite naturally because in their view truth was eternal and deviations from it had existed from the beginning. Above all, the Fathers found in the Catholic Epistles a manual for spiritual warfare, counsel for the faithful in the cosmic struggle between good and evil. In them was sound instruction in the ways of self-sacrifice, generosity and humility, through which the cosmic forces of evil could be defeated. Allusions to these letters go back as far as Justin Martyr, Irenaeus and Tertullian, but the first commentary derives from Clement of Alexandria. Didymus the Blind was the next significant Greek-speaking commentator, though his commentary is fully extant only in Latin translation. Many of the comments from the early centuries have been passed on to us through Latin catenae, or chain commentaries, in which a later commentator collected comments from a variety of sources and chained them together in a fashion much like that of the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture. Among Latin commentators on these letters, pride of place must be given to Bede the Venerable. This volume opens up a treasure house of ancient wisdom that allows these faithful witnesses, some appearing here in English translation for the first time, to speak with eloquence and intellectual acumen to the church today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent!  May 27, 2005
This is a great resource for Christians of all denominations. Simple, and clear enough for the lay person and yet still technical enough for the theologian and pastor. For those who desire to know the mind of the Church when there was only one Holy Catholic Church will find this commentary set excellent. In these comments you will see what was important as essential to the Church, what was considered secondary and up to individuals and individual churches and what united them as the One Catholic Church of Jesus Christ.
