A fine "pastoral" commentary on the Gospel of John. It is the final work of renowned scholar, pastor and teacher Archbishop Dimitri Royster.
"The great strength of this work is precisely that it lays no claim to originality but that it steadfastly seeks to give us access to material that can replenish the faith of Christians today." – Prof. William J. Abraham, from the Foreword
About the Author: Archbishop Dmitri Royster (1923–2011) was bishop of Dallas and the South of the Orthodox Church in America from 1978 to 2009. His Eminence was a great evangelizer and grew the fledging Diocese of the South to over sixty churches and missions by the time of his retirement. A prolific author and translator, some of his other titles include The Epistle to the Hebrews and The Miracles of Christ, available from SVS Press.
It is fitting, given Archbishop Dmitri’s continual preaching “in season, and out of season” on the reality of the Incarnation, that his final book would be this fine commentary on the Gospel according to St John: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.”
Scholar, pastor, teacher — all of these aspects of Archbishop Dmitri’s ministry shine forth in this commentary on St John’s Gospel — the final work of his fruitful life. Vladyka Dmitri reminds us again of the centrality of the “Word Made Flesh.” I rejoice that we have such a valuable resource from his hand.
The great strength of this work is precisely that it lays no claim to originality but that it steadfastly seeks to give us access to material that can replenish the faith of Christians today.
