Of Whom the World Was Not Worthy: Sermons on the Lives and Works of the Patriarchs and Prophets of the Old Testament

$11.95

 Product Description

Author: Father James Thornton

Format: Paperback

Pages: 200

“...[I]t seemed to this author that it would be of benefit to the faithful to learn something of the holy men of the Old Testament and through their stories and experiences to gain some appreciation of the vast expanse of the four-thousand-year-long history of the struggle for sanctity, what specialists often call the Heilsgeschichte, the ‘holy history,’ the history of God’s interaction with mankind. The need for the further presentation and elucidation of the Old Testament stories in an Orthodox Christian context was to me especially urgent since Orthodox Christians, at least those in America, are inadequately instructed in this subject and are often, therefore, the easy prey of sectarians of various stripes, who are always ready to exploit such circumstances to their own profit. That is unfortunate, even shameful, since Orthodox Christians are as much the true heirs to the legacy of the heroes of the Old Testament as they are to the legacy of the heroes of the New, and of all subsequent Christian history.”
