Item Description...
Overview
In addition to the serial homilies of John Chrysostom, readers of this volume will find selections from those of Origen, Theodore of Mopsuestia, Cyril of Alexandria and Augustine. These commentaries are supplemented with homiletic material from Gregory the Great, Peter Chrysologus, Caesarius, Amphilochius, Basil the Great and Basil of Seleucia among others. Liturgical selections derive from Ephrem the Syrian, Ambrose and Romanos the Melodist, which are further supplemented with doctrinal material from Athanasius, the Cappodocians, Hilary and Ambrose.

Publishers Description
The Gospel of John was beloved by the early church, much as it is today, for its spiritual insight and clear declaration of Jesus' divinity. Clement of Alexandria indeed declared it the "spiritual Gospel." Early disputers with heretics such as Cerinthus and the Ebionites drew upon the Gospel of John to refute their heretical notions and uphold the full deity of Christ, and this Gospel more than any other was central to the trinitarian and christological debates of the fourth and fifth centuries. At the same time, the Gospel of John was also thought to be the most chronological, and even to this day is the source of our sense of Jesus' having a three-year ministry. And John Chrysostom's Homilies on John, perhaps more than any other commentary, emphasize Christ's humanity and condescension toward the human race. In addition to the serial homilies of John Chrysostom, readers of this volume will find selections from those of Origen, Theodore of Mopsuestia, Cyril of Alexandria and Augustine. These commentaries are supplemented with homiletic material from Gregory the Great, Peter Chrysologus, Caesarius, Amphilochius, Basil the Great and Basil of Seleucia among others. Liturgical selections derive from Ephrem the Syrian, Ambrose and Romanos the Melodist, which are further supplemented with doctrinal material from Athanasius, the Cappodocians, Hilary and Ambrose. This rich tradition, some of which is here translated for the first time, offers a vast treasure out of which today's scribes trained for the kingdom may bring forth that which is new and what is old.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Good Secondary Resource  Apr 23, 2009
The glaring weakness of all commentaries in this series is the lack of context. The reader is given the mistaken impression that all of the fathers were speaking with one voice when in point of fact they were not. Nevertheless this commentary is of particular value for its Christology. Many of the quotes of the fathers on the deity of Christ affirmed in John 1:1 are difficult to find elsewhere.
 
Tom Woodley - Cloverdale, Indiana  May 30, 2007
A must for any scholars library but easily readable for the lay person.

Joel Elowsky does a wonderful job editing the texts of the Ancient Father's into a concise and informative view of John's gospel through the eyes of the early church.

Particularly well done and informative are the Overviews which follow each pericope.

I am looking forward to getting volume two.
 
Focused, clear, excellent !  May 14, 2007
Perfect for lay persons wanting great detail and background in a readable format.

Truly enjoyable for those seeking to expand their knowledge and insight into John.
