reviewed by Ryan J. Jack McDermott
Christians who want to read the Bible with the Fathers of the Church are blessed with several ways to do so, ranging from complete works by individual authors to devotional and exegetical aids. The most popular and accessible of these ways is the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture series from InterVarsity Press, which collates short paragraphs of commentary from the Church’s first millennium, weighted toward the Fathers’ lexical comments and glosses of the literal sense of Scripture (though it also offers plenty of spiritual exegesis).
