History and Spirit: The Understanding of Scripture According to Origen
July 3, 2016
Superb book by one of the leaders in the 20th century patristic revival. Do not let its size put you off, it is well worth the read. You will learn not only how the early Christians studied scripture, but also how scripture was interpreted by the greatest Biblical scholar of the first 1800 years of Christianity. Once you understand Origen, you will want to especially read Jerome (probably the greatest student of Origen), Eusebius of Caesarea, and Didymus the Blind.
And, as usual, the price was right. God bless my fellow Christians here at Christian Book who helped me to grow in the peace of Christ, the love of the Father and the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
