Item Description...
Overview
In this rich and vital resource edited by Alberto Ferreiro you will find excerpts, some translated here into English for the first time, from more than thirty church fathers, ranging in time from Clement of Rome, Justin Martyr and Irenaeus (late first and early second centuries) to Gregory the Great, Braulio of Saragossa and Bede the Venerable (late sixth to early eighth centuries). Geographically the sources range from the great Cappadocians--Basil the Great, Gregory of Nazianzus, Gregory of Nyssa--John Chrysostom, Ephrem the Syrian and Hippolytus in the East to Ambrose, Augustine, Cyprian and Tertullian in the West and Origen, Cyril and Pachomius in Egypt.

Publishers Description
"And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, the risen Jesus] interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself" (Lk 24:27). The church fathers mined the Old Testament throughout for prophetic utterances regarding the Messiah, but few books yielded as much messianic ore as the Twelve Prophets, sometimes known as the Minor Prophets, not because of their relative importance but because of the relative brevity of their writings. Encouraged by the example of the New Testament writers themselves, the church fathers found numerous parallels between the Gospels and the prophetic books. Among the events foretold, they found not only the flight into Egypt after the nativity, the passion and resurrection of Christ, and the outpuoring of the Spirit at Pentecost, but also Judas's act of betrayal, the earthquake at Jesus' death and the rending of the temple veil. Detail upon detail brimmed with significance for Christian doctrine, including baptism and the Eucharist as well as the relation between the covenants. In this rich and vital resource edited by Alberto Ferreiro you will find excerpts, some translated here into English for the first time, from more than thirty church fathers, ranging in time from Clement of Rome, Justin Martyr and Irenaeus (late first and early second centuries) to Gregory the Great, Braulio of Saragossa and Bede the Venerable (late sixth to early eighth centuries). Geographically the sources range from the great Cappadocians--Basil the Great, Gregory of Nazianzus, Gregory of Nyssa--John Chrysostom, Ephrem the Syrian and Hippolytus in the East to Ambrose, Augustine, Cyprian and Tertullian in the West and Origen, Cyril and Pachomius in Egypt. Here is a treasure trove out of which Christians may bring riches both old and new in their understanding of these ancient texts.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Bible Study aid  Jun 16, 2005
This volume gives you a flavor and overview of the doctrine of the early fathers, especially how they interpreted the minor prophets. There is much to learn from the men who kept the Church united as one Holy Catholic Church for 1000 years.
 
An outstanding addition. . .  Feb 10, 2004
. . .to one of the most important publishing events in Biblical studies in a long time -- the Ancient Christian Commentary series.

I have been generally very impressed with the New Testament volumes already published, and with the publication of Genesis 1-11 -- but had been much less pleased with the quality of the Genesis 12-Deuteronomy volume. "The Twelve Prophets" however, takes its rightful place at the very top of what this commentary series has to offer.

All twelve prophets are handled in depth and detail -- even those which are very short, demonstrating the importance and esteem in which the early Christians held these books. Any serious student of either early Church history or of the Minor Prophets themselves, cannot afford to be without this volume.

Very highly recommended.
