Hardback cover stamped with gold. Includes three appendices and four indices.
Based on the sequence of daily scriptural readings (NKJV) from the liturgical calendar of the Orthodox Church, this resource includes comments from the church fathers on each Epistle and Gospel passage. Sections of the Old Testament are also included to support the church lectionary for major feast days, Great Lent, and Holy Week. Writings from contemporary Orthodox theologians and scholars are included. The life and tradition of the Church inform the personal meditations on Scripture and attune the reader to the annual, rhythmic cycle of fasts and feasts. This work will surely be considered a must-have for Orthodox believers.
I have had this book for a long time. Being able to look up versus from the bible with the Church Fathers right there is such a fantastic gift for a collage graduate or if you would like to read both, but do not want to hunt around in multiple books. It is nicely bound and is a beautiful addition to your library.
