Mark by Thomas C Oden( Book )

26 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ancient Christian Commentary on Mark opens up a long-forgotten passage through the arid and precipitous slopes of post-Enlightenment critical interpretation and bears us along to a fertile valley basking in the sunshine of theological and spiritual interpretation. In these pages we enter the interpretive world that long nurtured the great premodern pastors, theologians end saints of the church

Colossians, 1-2 Thessalonians, 1-2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon by Thomas C Oden( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture series is an ecumenical project, promoting a vital link of communication between the varied Christian traditions of today and their common ancient ancestors in the faith. On this shared ground we listen as leading pastoral theologians of six centuries gather around the text of Scripture and offer their best theological, spiritual and pastoral insights. With the aid of computer technology, the vast array of writings from the church fathers-- including much that is available only in the ancient languages-- have been searched for their comment on Scripture, then hand-selected by scholars who then shaped and annotated the materials to introduce it to today's readers. Each portion of commentary has been chosen for its salient insight, its rhetorical power and its faithful representation of the consensual exegesis of the early church.--Book jacket and publisher's website

The Twelve Prophets by Alberto Ferreiro( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and Korean and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Encouraged by the example of the New Testament writers themselves, the church fathers found numerous parallels between the Gospels and the prophetic books. Among the events foretold, they found not only the flight into Egypt after the nativity, the passion and resurrection of Christ, and the outpuoring of the Spirit at Pentecost, but also Judas's act of betrayal, the earthquake at Jesus' death and the rending of the temple veil. Detail upon detail brimmed with significance for Christian doctrine, including baptism and the Eucharist as well as the relation between the covenants. In this rich and vital resource edited by Alberto Ferreiro you will find excerpts, some translated here into English for the first time, from more than thirty church fathers, ranging in time from Clement of Rome, Justin Martyr and Irenaeus (late first and early second centuries) to Gregory the Great, Braulio of Saragossa and Bede the Venerable (late sixth to early eighth centuries). Geographically the sources range from the great Cappadocians--Basil the Great, Gregory of Nazianzus, Gregory of Nyssa--John Chrysostom, Ephrem the Syrian and Hippolytus in the East to Ambrose, Augustine, Cyprian and Tertullian in the West and Origen, Cyril and Pachomius in Egypt. Here is a treasure trove out of which Christians may bring riches both old and new in their understanding of these ancient texts. - Publisher

Isaiah 1-39 by Steven A McKinion( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the early church fathers the prophecy of Isaiah was not a compendium of Jewish history or theology but an announcement of the coming Messiah fulfilled in the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. As such, the prophet's words were a rich source of theological reflection concerning their Lord and a vital aid in their defense against the objections of the Jews that Jesus was the promised Messiah. The interpretation of Jesus' ministry in light of Isaiah's prophecy was not a theological innovation on their part but rather a following of the path blazed by the New Testament writers and Jesus himself." "Among passage-by-passage commentaries cited here are those by Eusebius of Caesarea, Jerome, Cyril of Alexandria and Theodoret of Cyr, as well as one attributed to Basil of Caesarea. John Chrysostom preached a series of homilies on Isaiah of which most of those extant concern the first eight chapters, though Chrysostom frequently cites Isaiah in numerous homilies on other books. Augustine of Hippo, Gregory the Great and Bede the Venerable frequently cite passages from Isaiah 1-39, as did many other fathers in defending the Christian faith from Jewish critics."--Jacket

How Africa shaped the Christian mind : rediscovering the African seedbed of western Christianity by Thomas C Oden( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Africa has played a decisive role in the formation of Christian culture from its infancy. Some of the most decisive intellectual achievements of Christianity were explored and understood in Africa before they were in Europe. If this is so, why is Christianity so often perceived in Africa as a Western colonial import? How can Christians in Northern and sub-Saharan Africa, indeed how can Christians throughout the world, rediscover and learn from this ancient heritage? Theologian Thomas C. Oden offers a portrait that challenges prevailing notions of the intellectual development of Christianity from its early roots to its modern expressions. The pattern, he suggests, is not from north to south from Europe to Africa, but the other way around. He then makes an impassioned plea to uncover the hard data and study in depth the vital role that early African Christians played in developing the modern university, maturing Christian exegesis of Scripture, shaping early Christian dogma, modeling conciliar patterns of ecumenical decision-making, stimulating early monasticism, developing Neoplatonism, and refining rhetorical and dialectical skills. He calls for a wide-ranging research project to fill out the picture he sketches. It will require, he says, a generation of disciplined investigation, combining intensive language study with a risk-taking commitment to uncover the truth in potentially unreceptive environments. Oden envisions a dedicated consortium of scholars linked by computer technology and a common commitment that will seek to shape not only the scholar's understanding but the ordinary African Christian's self-perception. - Publisher
Requiem : a lament in three movements by Thomas C Oden( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Requiem: a lament in three movements is a post-liberal critique of the mainline liberal ecclesiastical establishment, especially the theological seminaries and church bureaucracies. Thomas C. Oden identifies the failure of contemporary theological education and its accompanying ideology, maps out the ultra-liberalization of church bureaucracies and special-interest politics, and calls for a return to classical Christian theological roots and categories. Broadly ecumenical in the truest sense of the word, and written from the perspective of a former fellow traveling liberal, Oden's direct, frank, and provocative approach articulates concerns many church people--leaders, pastors, teachers, seminarians, and the faithful in the pews--hold. Requiem promises to be one of the most controversial and important contributions to the debate about the nature and calling of the church in the last half of the last decade of this millennium"--Provided by publisher
