This classic Orthodox commentary of the New Testament was written about the year 1100 A.D. by a brilliant and saintly Orthodox hierarch. His commentary has remained a primary text of New Testament interpretation throughout the Orthodox world of Greece, Russia, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Romania. Blessed Theophylact distills the teaching of the earlier Church Fathers, especially Saint John Chrysostom, in language that is profound, powerful and direct. Translated from the Greek by Fr Christopher Stade. Hardbound.
