38 homilies for holy days throughout the liturgical year
The liturgical year centers on the story of Jesus—his birth, ministry, death, and resurrection. To attend to the feasts of the church is to enter into the life of Christ. Khaled Anatolios invites us into this perpetual mystery with thirty-eight homilies for the feasts of the church year.
As a patristic theologian, Anatolios illuminates the traditional doctrines of Christology and the Trinity, in a style reminiscent of the sermons of the great fathers of the church. Originally delivered as part of the Eastern Christian Divine Liturgy, the homilies look toward its Eucharistic fulfillment. Feasts for the Kingdom covers Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and other important holy days along the way. Also included are sermons for a federal election, funerals, and a wedding. This volume makes the perfect companion for pastors seeking inspiration for their own preaching and for ordinary Christians aiming to enrich their prayerful preparation for each liturgical season.
