This book offers a fresh look at the way Eastern patristic writers used Scripture in elaborating what would become the body of Orthodox doctrine.
The early epistles of St. Paul come down to us from antiquity like a flame kindled from within his great apostolic heart—a flame of indignation that the people he loved were being led astray from the path of Christ. These are not words of disinterested philosophy nor of cold catechetical teaching. They are words of fire, and they come from one who was himself on fire with the love of God and His people. These early epistles have burned their way down through the centuries, and are given to us now as God’s gift through His apostle to burn in our hearts as well.
A synthesis of doctrine, spirituality, and biblical scholarship applied to the similarities and differences between old and new revelation in the Bible.
This new edition has two completely new sections: one titled "The Rise and Formation of Scripture" and one titled "Toward the Gospel." Together they clarify the relationship between the Old and New Testaments and will help every reader understand why the New Testament cannot be understood except in the light of the Old.
Fr. Tarazi provides essential background un the language, history, and culture of those who first wrote, used, and edited these psalms, leading to sometimes surprising new understandings of common terms such as "king," "God," "Lord," and "righteousness." Along the way he explains how and why the psalms were used in prayer, and what we can learn about prayer itself.
