The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom is the main Liturgy of the Orthodox Church and, as shown in this seminal work, is rooted in the Scriptures both Old and New Testaments. Dating back some 1,500 years Patristic writes have commented on the test and the Author places those quotations along with the text.
Fr. Peck sets forth the Divine Liturgy with Scripture annotations and on the opposite pages he includes quotes from the Fathers and Mothers of the Church. It is a great reference for one particular part of the Liturgy or as a study of the entire text. It is an invaluable resource for anyone who is serious about the study of the Divine Liturgy.
This present volume is great for a study text for an adult or teen study of the Divine Liturgy, I would also recommend this work to seminary students who wish to develop a patristic and Scriptural sense of the Divine Liturgy.
Fr. John A. Peck is an Orthodox Christian priest, and speaks regularly on Classical Education, interpretation and integration of Holy Scripture in Christian education and on spiritual formation. He is a contributor and commentator to the Orthodox Study Bible-Old & New Testaments, published by Thomas Nelson Publishers.
