Includes The 160-page Master Reference Guide and CD of the 1650-page computerized Volumes 1 thru 4 of the Philokalia.
The Philokalia are writings second only to the Bible in the Orthodox Christian faith. They represent priceless spirituality from the 4th to the 15th centuries. Sts. Makarios & Nikodemos brought these writings into the 18th century, while the translation of Palmer, Sherrard, & Bishop Kallistos Ware brought them into the English-speaking world of the 20th century.
This complete set of the writings of the Early Church Fathers translated into English is one of the most important collections of historical, philosophical and theological writings available to the student of the Christian Church. Includes the Libronix Digital Library System viewer.
The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture from InterVarsity Press does what very few of today’s students of the Bible could do for themselves. With the aid of computer technology, the vast array of writings from the church fathers—including much that is available only in the ancient languages—have been combed for their comment on Scripture. From these results, scholars with a deep knowledge of the fathers and a heart for the church have hand selected material for each volume, shaping, annotating and introducing it to today’s readers. Each portion of commentary has been chosen for its salient insight, its rhetorical power and its faithful representation of the consensual exegesis of the early church.
