Author: Archbishop Averky (Taushev)

Form: Cloth

Pages: 368

This third and final volume of Archbishop Averky's New Testament commentary elucidates the moral and pastoral aspects of the Pauline and Universal Epistles and the Book of Revelation. Discussion of each New Testament book is preceded by an analysis of the authorship, time and place of composition, and major themes within. The final commentary on the Apocalypse, in which Archbishop Averky relies heavily on the ancient commentary of St Andrew of Ceasaria, is provided in the popular translation by Hieromonk Seraphim (Rose), together with the Scriptural text itself. 

The author's approach is thoroughly patristic, constantly turning to the Church Fathers for the elucidation of one or another particular verse, especially to the commentaries and expositions of St John Chrysostom, Blessed Theophylact of Ochrid, Blessed Theodoret of Cyrus, and most particularly to the voluminous Scriptural commentaries of St Theophan the Recluse. The commentary has been copiously annotated with citations to primary sources, which did not appear in the original text.

Archbishop Averky's commentaries on the New Testament have become standard textbooks in Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary and have been published in Russia to widespread acclaim. They are an indispensable addition to the library of every student of the New Testament.

  1. A must for everyone 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2018

    As a church reader, I am very pleased to have a deeper insight into the texts I read each Sunday and every day. Archbishop Averky helps us in our journey through the Scriptures. And in this very Volume III, the text of Blessed Seraphim of Platina about the Book of Revelation is the first one I ever read about a book that is not used in the Church's Liturgy. I highly recommend that book to everyone.
