5.0 out of 5 stars From the back of the book: 21 Sep 2005
By S. McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Distinctive in form, content and style, the epistle to the Hebrews offers a profound high Christology and makes an awe-inspiring contribution to the understanding of Jesus as High Priest. The earliest extant commentary on the letter comes in thirty-four homilies from John Chrysostom. These homilies serve to anchor the excerpts chosen by the editors of this volume because of their unique place in the history of interpretation. In addition to being the first comprehensive commentary on the letter, they deeply influenced subsequent interpretation in both the East and the West, and their rhetorical eloquence has long been acknowledged. As in other Ancient Christian Commentary volumes, the excerpts chosen range widely over geography and time from Justin Martyr and Clement of Rome in the late first and early second century to The Venerable Bede, Isaac of Nineveh, Photius and John of Damascus in the eighth and ninth centuries. The Alexandrian tradition is well represented in Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Athanasius, Didymus and Cyril of Alexandria, while the Antiochene tradition is represented in Ephrem the Syrian, Theodore of Mopsuestia, Severian of Gabala and Theodoret of Cyr. Italy and North Africa in the West are represented by Ambrose, Cassiodorus and Augustine, while Constantinople, Asia Minor and Jerusalem in the East are represented by the Great Cappadocians-Basil the Great, Gregory of Nazianzus and Gregory of Nyssa-Eusebius, Cyril of Jerusalem and Jerome.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Secondary Resource 26 April 2009
By Quentin D. Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Hebrews, like Colossians and the Gospel of John has a high Christology. The fathers are often at their best when extolling the person of Christ so the reader will be richly rewarded by owning this commentary. The down side is that all of the ACCS commentaries lack historical and theological context. One is given the impression that all of the fathers spoke as one, and this is most certainly not so, but in the case of Christology the reader will discover a wonderful consensus of the fathers regarding the deity of the Son. There are patristic citations here that are difficult to find elsewhere, for that alone it is worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Hebrews by the Ancient Church Fathers 26 Jan 2009
By Jerry Max Bunyard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have found this book to be well organized and helpful in my understanding of the Book of Hebrews. This series of books, "Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture," that are under the General Editorship of Dr. Thomas C. Oden were brought to my attention by Dr. Oden several years ago. I find his work and those who collaborate with him to be exceptional in the Church Fathers understanding and thinking back in the 1st through the 5th Century in particular as well as later time frames. It is important to me and others as we attempt to glean the truth from Scripture that we include the early Church Fathers' views in our study and this book does just that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the Beginning. 29 Sep 2005
By Discerning Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Here is a worthwhile buy, to see how the ancient fathers of the Church interpreted the book of Hebrews. This is made for both those well read and for the regular lay person. It's set up for both reading as well as for use as a commentary. Highly recommended.
