"This current translation of a major biblical commentary on the Gospel of Luke makes an outstanding contribution for the life of the Christian community today. This translation is the work of a distinguished Scripture scholar - Robert J. Karris, OFM - who has done an exceptional job.

St. Bonaventure's commentary on Luke's Gospel : thirty days of reflection and prayer by Robert J Karris( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bonaventure has many insights to share not only with members of the Franciscan Family, but also with the church at large. From his work on translating and annotating St. Bonaventure's three-volume Commentary on Luke's Gospel, noted Scripture scholar Robert Karris has developed this book of reflections for thirty days. Playfully referring to them as "BonaLuke bites," Karris gives preferential treatment to those passages used in the Sunday lectionary during Cycle C.A user-friendly format begins with the passages from Luke's Gospel followed by Bonaventure's commentary on one or two verses under consideration. Karris's reflection follows that of Bonaventure and concludes with a prayer. Some readers may reverse the process as they are meant as springboards for the readers' own reflections and prayer. Today Lukan scholars acknowledge many "Franciscan" themes in Luke's Gospel. Members of the Franciscan Family will enjoy reacquainting themselves with the charism through the lens of Luke's Gospel. Perhaps preachers will find that old interpretations are new again and can sparkle because Bonaventure has singled out the very best from tradition to challenge our normal way of interpreting passages familiar through years of liturgical use

Commentary on the Gospel of John by Bonaventure( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and Latin and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Karris has rendered an invaluable service to scholars, students, and pastors interested in Bonaventure, the history of interpretation, and the Gospel of John. His eminently readable translation is accompanied by insightful and learned footnotes. To read Bonaventure's discussion of John is to learn from an exegete who pays close attention to the text, while simultaneously being exposed to the rich theological and interpretative tradition, especially of Augustine and Chrysostom, Bonaventure himself inherited"--Marianne Meye Thompson, Fuller Theological Seminary
