THE EXPLANATION OF THE EPISTLE OF ST. PAUL TO THE GALATIANS

Author: BLESSED THEOPHYLACT, ARCHBISHOP OF OCHRID AND BULGARIA TRANSLATED BY FR. CHRISTOPHER STADE #: 10001
This volume contains Blessed Theophylact’s commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians. Although St. Paul wrote this letter to address the particular issue of circumcision that was troubling the young churches of Galatia, its purpose goes much deeper. A central theme of the Epistle is the question of the essence of the Christian life—is it based on correct practices or on faith? St. Paul explains the purpose of the Judaic law, and the necessity of moving beyond its practice to the new, very different life based on faith in Christ. The depth of the Apostle’s care for his flock is evident as he strives to draw them away from the old understanding of sin, into the new knowledge of the glory and love of Christ.

THE TRIAL OF JOB: ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN REFLECTIONS ON THE BOOK OF JOB

Author: PATRICK HENRY REARDON #: 10011
The Book of Job always constituted essential and formative reading about the ways of the soul. This has always been the conviction of the spiritual classics through the centuries. Yet, for some reason, the figure of Job is elusive to us—possibly because he seems so comfortably distant; or perhaps because he seems so frightfully close. What Fr. Patrick Reardon achieves with this book is to render Job comprehensible (to those of us who are still lay readers of scripture), tangible (to those who have not yet tasted the way of darkness and despair), and accessible (to those who have already experienced any form of brokenness and broken-heartedness). Ultimately, all of us identify with one or another aspect of Job’s life. As life inevitably informs and as this book intuitively confirms, one cannot sing Psalms without having read Job!”

AN INTRODUCTION TO READING THE APOCALYPSE

Author: COLUMBA GRAHAM FLEGG #: 10012
The Apocalypse is a book widely misunderstood, that has given rise to numerous strange heresies; and yet it is a book that we neglect at our peril, for it speaks to us, in the most literal sense, about matters of life and death — eternal life, eternal death. Here, more than anywhere else in Scripture, we recognize the truth of the Ethiopian`s reply to Philip: `How can I understand what I am reading, unless someone guides me?` (Acts 8:31)

THE OLD TESTAMENT INTRODUCTION: VOL. I - HISTORICAL TRADITIONS

Author: PAUL NADIM TARAZI #: 10021
This revised edition of Paul Tarazi`s The Old Testament: An Introduction — Historical Traditions takes into account twelve years of additional research. The way historical background is presented constitutes the biggest change: this book no longer includes a reconstructed of the "history of Israel." The author concludes that none of the scriptural books were intended to offer a history in the sense that we use that word today, so any efforts to construct such a history necessarily leads one astray from the original intention of the scriptural text. What the books` original authors and editors did not indent was to present a long ma`al — a Hebrew word that is variously translated "parable," "allegory," "proverb," or "edifying story." Therefore, the best way to understand the biblical books is to focus on the story itself.
