Series: The Church's Bible

This Church’s Bible volume on the Gospel of John contains carefully selected and translated homilies and commentaries from such church fathers as Cyril of Alexandria, Cyril of Jerusalem, Gregory the Great, Theodore of Mopsuestia, Augustine, Athanasius, and the Venerable Bede. Ranging chronologically from the second century to the ninth, these substantial patristic selections provide an illuminating window into the breadth of the church’s interpretive tradition on John’s Gospel.

— Religious Studies Review
“This series rescues from the shadows the many penetrating insights of ancient Jewish and Christian interpreters. . . . They can continue to
instruct us today with their perception into the perennial foibles of the human condition.”
— First Things
“Serious students of the Bible will want to consider subscribing to the entire series, which holds the promise of powerfully enriching and recasting scriptural study in the twenty-first century.”
“Crafted to provide modern readers easy and rewarding access to ancient authors. . . . This volume makes a strong case that, far from being only of antiquarian interest, those whose lives were profoundly and pervasively shaped by Scripture (in a manner none of us today can claim) and whose faithful witness to the One whose Spirit was at work in all of Scripture, have everything to teach us about both Scripture and the faith.”
Religious Studies Review
“This volume is an incredibly rich resource that is a must have for any student, pastor, or scholar working with the Gospel of John.”
