Item description for Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy (Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture: Old Testament, Volume III) by Joseph T. Lienhard...

Overview
Let the wisdom of the early church fathers inform your reading of the Old Testament. Patristic interpreters from Greek, Latin, and Syriac traditions engage Scripture, offering spiritual and intellectual insights on critical issues of contemporary Christian faith and practice. Of particular note in this new ACCS volume are reflections from Origen's 27th homily on Numbers.

Publishers Description
From its inception the church has always had a Bible--the Jewish Scriptures. But Christians have not read these Scriptures in the same way the Jews did. They have read them in the light of what God did in Jesus the Christ. Thus the Jewish Scriptures became for Christian readers the Old Testament. This Ancient Christian Commentary on Exodus through Deuteronomy bears ample witness to this new way of reading these ancient texts. Among the earliest interpreters whose works remain extant is Origen, who virtually single-handedly assured the Old Testament a permanent place within the Christian church through his extensive commentary and reflection. His twenty-seventh homily on Numbers is particularly noteworthy for his interpretation of the forty-two stopping places in the desert wanderings as the forty-two stages of growth in the spiritual life. Among Greek-speaking interpreters, the current volume draws widely on John Chrysostom, Clement of Alexandria, Basil the Great, Gregory of Nazianzus, Gregory of Nyssa, Cyril of Alexandria, Theodoret of Cyr and John of Damascus. Among Latin-speaking interpreters, quotations from Augustine, Ambrose, Jerome, Peterius, Caesarius of Arles, Cassiodorus and Isidore are found in abundance. Ephrem and Aphrahat are represented among Syriac speakers. Numerous other interpreters are present from each grouping. Varied in texture and nuance, the interpreters included in this volume edited by Joseph T. Lienhard display a treasure house of ancient wisdom that speaks with eloquence and intellectual acumen to the church today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy (Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture: Old Testament, Volume III)?

I appreciate what the series is trying to do. . .  Nov 13, 2001
. . .but I believe that the Pentateuch has been given short shrift.

I completely understand the rationalization behind dividing Genesis into two volumes (1-11 and 12-50). What I cannot understand is the rationalization behind throwing the remaining four books into a single volume.

I realize that the very nature of parts of Exodus, Leviticus, parts of Numbers and parts of Deuteronomy would make a commentary of this type far more difficult -- but there is a great deal of narrative in those books as well, upon which the Fathers did, in fact, comment.

I got the impression that this volume was assembled perhaps too hastily. It just doesn't contain the wealth of information that is found in many of the other books.

I'll continue purchasing the series, of course -- but this volume does not represent the best of what "Ancient Christian Commentaries" has to offer.
