THE OLD TESTAMENT INTRODUCTION: VOL. III - PSALMS AND WISDOM

Author: PAUL NADIM TARAZI #: 10022
The psalm`s importance to Christians cannot be overstated, since more of the Church`s services as well as private prayers are drawn from them than from any other part of scripture, yet as Paul Tarazi shows in this conclusion to his Old Testament Introduction trilogy, it is impossible to understand them merely by reading English translations.

THE NEW TESTAMENT: AN ORTHODOX PERSPECTIVE - VOLUME 1

FIRST THESSALONIANS: A COMMENTARY

Author: PAUL NADIM TARAZI #: 10025
The First Epistle to the Thessalonians is the oldest of the writings which have been gathered into the New Testament. In reading it we can sense the powerful impact made by St Paul`s preaching of the Gospel as well as the Apostle`s continuing prayerful concern for this new mission church. We also discover St Paul`s understanding of the Second Coming of Christ as he deals with the perennial question of “those who have fallen asleep.”

THE POWER OF THE WORD: IN THE WORSHIPING CHURCH

Author: JOHN BRECK #: 10027
The importance of the "power of the Word" as the means by which saving events of the past become "actualized" in each present moment within the life and experience of the Church is the focuses of The Power of the Word. In searching for a hermeneutic for exegesis and interpretation of the Scriptures in today`s world, Breck turns to the patristic vision to recover the dynamic quality of the Word as the instrument of God`s self-disclosure and self-communication.

THE OLD TESTAMENT INTRODUCTION: VOL. II - PROPHETIC TRADITIONS

Author: PAUL NADIM TARAZI #: 10028
The books of the Old Testament prophets abound with enigmas tending to leave the modern reader bewildered. Why did Amos claim not to be a prophet? Did Hosea really marry a harlot at God`s command? Were Isaiah`s famous "sign of Immanuel" and "servant poems" really Messianic prophecies? Why all the strange visions of Ezekiel, and what do they mean? Above all, what is or was a "prophet" and what was each one trying to say to his contemporaries?

ST. JOHN CHRYSOSTOM COMMENTARIES ON THE SAGES VOL. 1 COMMENTARY ON JOB

Author: #: 10031
The Fathers, especially of the East, did not leave us many commentaries on the Wisdom Books of the Old Testament, even thogh frequently citing the figure of Job and Solomon’s proverbs in their other works. This neglect may perhaps be accounted for by a reluctance to see the sages as recipients of inspiration in the same fashion as psalmists and prophets, Wisdom often seeming to be the fruit of human experience. It is therefore doubly gratifying that recent scholarship has unearthed commentaries on the text of Job, Proverbs and Ecclesiastes by the celebrated preacher of Antioch, John Chrysostom. Not only do these texts complete the already huge corpus of his works, but they reveal the response of a Greek Father to this distinctive sapiential material, which the ancients found challenging, sometimes pragmatic, sometimes quaint. We may debate the Fathers’ degree of appreciation of biblical Wisdom; but, as Chrysostom says of Proverbs, “it makes no trifling contribution to our moral life.”
