Author: Blessed Theophylact
Written 900 years ago by Blessed Theophylact of Ochrid, these commentaries distill the essence of St. John Chrysostom’s preaching—and that of other great fathers of the patristic era—many centuries before his own time. Blessed Theophylact has given us a “ Bible study” of ancient and divine origin, untouched by contemporary opinions and discussions. It is in fact, timeless and has proven its value to every generation of Orthodox Christians during the past nine centuries. Translated from the original Greek by Fr. Christopher Stade

The Gospels are our link to living the Christian life and knowing Christ's commandments and we should all read them often. However, many verses are "easily "wrested to you own destruction" when not read with Orthodox understanding.
Blessed Theophylact comes to our aid by teaching us the Patristic and Traditional explanations of every line and verse of the Gospels. This he did 900 years ago. There is no political agenda here, no grad-student pushing novelty to sell books. This is ancient wisdom of the holy Fathers condensed and taught to you by a holy Bishop as if he's teaching you face to face.
These books are priceless treasures. Thanks be to God for preserving them for 900 years and for those who worked so hard to translate them into English. Buy these books, ALL of them, and you will never be lead away by false doctrine or misunderstandings of the Gospels again.
