I've known about Bede for a long time, but had only ever read his Ecclesiastical History of the English. This is volume 2 of his sermons (or Homilies) on the gospels, written to be preached through the church year from Lent through to Pentecost. Although very different from a modern approach, they make great reading. Bede's homilies were later included in a collection used across Catholic Europe from centuries after h is death, so his importance goes way beyond his Anglo-Saxon Northumbria. If you're a preacher, or if you're interested in church history, these are well worth reading. They're a great insight into the way our forefathers saw the Bible.

Bede should be a must read for all Christians. I only wish there were more translated into English.

This book is very good if you are interested in St. Bede and his writings. No pictures! Just a very good commentary on his homilies. Great Lenten book.
