Publisher's Description

41 homilies for holy days throughout the liturgical year 
 
The liturgical year centers on the story of Jesus—his birth, ministry, death, and resurrection. To attend to the feasts of the church is to enter into the life of Christ. Khaled Anatolios invites us into this perpetual mystery with forty-one homilies for the feasts of the church year. 
 
As a patristic theologian, Anatolios illuminates the traditional doctrines of Christology and the Trinity, in a style reminiscent of the sermons of the great fathers of the church. Originally delivered as part of the Eastern Christian Divine Liturgy, the homilies look toward its Eucharistic fulfillment. Feasts for the Kingdom covers Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and other important holy days along the way. Also included are sermons for a federal election, funerals, and a wedding. This volume is the perfect companion for pastors seeking inspiration for their own preaching and for ordinary Christians aiming to enrich their prayerful preparation for each liturgical season. 

Author Bio


Khaled Anatolios is John A. O'Brien Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame. He is also a priest of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church, an Eastern Catholic church that has its roots in the Arabic- speaking Middle East and is in communion with the Roman Catholic Church. His previous publications include Retrieving Nicaea: The Development and Meaning of Trinitarian Doctrine and Deification through the Cross: An Eastern Christian Theology of Salvation.

Editorial Reviews

Church Times
"These homilies provide nourishment for both mind and spirit. They are, as Rowan Williams says in his commendation, ’a treasury of wisdom and clarity.’"

"Theologically rich, spiritually perceptive, humanely contemporary, and informed by the great common heritage of Christian tradition, these homilies are a treasury of wisdom and clarity." 
—Rowan Williams, 104thArchbishop of Canterbury

"Opening the riches of Eastern Christianity to Christians of all traditions, Khaled Anatolios’s Feasts for the Kingdom rehabilitates the sermon as a true theological genre, to the benefit of both preaching and theology. These sermons are saturated with sophisticated reflection on Scripture and tradition yet are crafted in a way that makes theology accessible and life-giving." 
—Frederick Bauerschmidt, Loyola University Maryland 

"From the first time I heard Fr. Khaled’s preaching, I always wanted to be able to savor this gift and return to his words. It is a delight that these homilies are appearing in print at last. The voice within these pages addresses needs of our times with pastoral sensitivity and situational particularity, ordered by the liturgical rhythm of the Byzantine church. At the same time, the homilies are composed with a deep, sonorous familiarity with Scripture as a way of thinking, speaking, and living in intimacy with Christ through the Holy Spirit in the sight of the Father. Their distinctive grace is at once to echo and to renew the patristic tradition; they offer a model for prayerful expression of godly love within a modern ecumenical ecclesia." 
—Jane Heath, Durham University

"In our broken world, in the midst of personal sin and social sin, in the midst of suffering and death, we need salvation. But even many Christians—all too often including myself—have forgotten what ’salvation’ might mean, beyond the simple desire for health and prosperity. What Fr. Anatolios does in these sermons is to reintroduce, step by step, what salvation in Christ is and why it is the pearl of great price. These beneficent sermons are an invitation to enter into the kingdom of Christ, the kingdom of salvation, here and now." 
—Matthew Levering, Mundelein Seminary

"This volume of sermons on the major feasts of the Byzantine liturgical tradition is itself a feast of words that will nourish and sustain any readers fortunate enough to enjoy its bounties, whether they are pastors looking to serve a richer banquet to their hungry congregations or lay people eager for greater sustenance in an increasingly undernourished world. Each homily reflects a rare ability to tie the scriptural message not only to the liturgical moment but also to patristic theology and to the larger life of Christian discipleship. The sermons represent the triumph of showing how the patristic model of preaching offers a valuable mode of speaking to modern believers." 
—George Parsenios, Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology
