EARLY CHRISTIAN CREEDS

Author: J.N.D. KELLY #: 10313
This is a comprehensive study of the rise, development and use of credal formularies in the creative centuries of the Church`s history. Opens with an examination of credal elements in the New Testament and continues with an enquiry into the relation of creeds to the rite of baptism. The chapters that follow are devoted to a study of the evidence for "the rule of faith" in the second century; a long discussion of the Old Roman Creed; and a consideration of the creeds of the Eastern Church and their relation to Western creeds and to those propounded by the fourth-century councils. Particular attention is given to the Council of Nicaea and the Nicene Creed. In addition, there is a lengthy and largely original reconstruction of the expansion of the Roman Creed and its acceptance thoughout Europe as the present Apostles` Creed. Two valuable features of the book are the emphasis it lays on the liturgical setting of ancient creeds, and the attempt it makes to elucidate their theology as it was understood by those who framed them.

They describe the socio-cultural scene of the Christian community in the Constantinian and Theodosian eras (known as the age of the Church of the Empire or the Imperial Church) and define the conditions in which pastors and thinkers sought to help the faithful understand their religion.

PATROLOGY (4 VOLUMES)

Author: JOHANNES QUASTEN AND ANGELO DI BERARDINO #: 10316
A monumental work that presents a solid introduction to early Christian literature to the English reading public. It is the first work of its kind written originally in English. Reviewers were unanimous in heaping praise upon the publication and looking upon it as a breakthrough in studying the Fathers of the Church. This achievement was completed with the publication of Patrology, Volume IV. Because of health difficulties, Johannes Quasten was unable to finish his masterwork. Fortunately, the Augustinian Patristic Institute of Rome decided to complete the Patrology; its work is translated under the direction of Angelo di Berardino in the present volume IV.

THE PRAYER OF ST EPHREM: A BIBLICAL COMMENTARY

Author: #: 10318
St. Ephrem the Syrian (306-379) is perhaps one of the most prolific Fathers of the Eastern Church, composing four-hundred liturgical hymns and scriptural commentaries, earning him such titles as the Harp of the Spirit and the Pillar of the Church. St. Ephrem is best known for the short prayer, The Prayer of St. Ephrem, which is used throughout the season of Great Lent. The prayer outlines both the sins and virtues of community life: sloth, despair, lusting of power, idle talk; as well as chastity humility, patience, and love for the neighbor. The Prayer of St. Ephrem: A Biblical Commentary provides the reader with the scriptural background to the words and metaphors contained in this short but inspirational prayer. This book is a good resource for either personal devotion or for small group Bible Studies in the parish.
