Series: The Church's Bible

The Church’s Bible series brings the rich classical tradition of biblical interpretation to life, illuminating Scripture as it was understood during the first millennium of Christian history. Compiled, translated, and edited by leading scholars, these volumes draw extensively from early and medieval commentators. The Church’s Bible leads contemporary clergy, Bible teachers, and students of Scripture into the inexhaustible spiritual and theological world of the early church.

This volume on the Gospel of John contains select, freshly translated excerpts from the writings of such church fathers as Cyril of Alexandria, Cyril of Jerusalem, Gregory the Great, Theodore of Mopsuestia, Augustine, and Athanasius. Ranging chronologi­cally from the second century to the ninth century, these patristic selections provide wide exposure to the breadth of the interpre­tive tradition on the Gospel of John. 

— 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.”
