Hierarchs Endorse Book of Homilies by Seminary Dean
« on: September 04, 2014, 06:02:09 PM »
"Two prominent hierarchs have given their episcopal endorsement to a newly released volume of homilies by The Very Rev. Dr. John Behr, dean of St. Vladimir's. Both Archbishop Demetrios (Trakatellis), primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, and also Bishop Maxim (Vasiljevic) bishop of the Western American Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America, offered praises, printed on the back cover of The Cross Stands, While the World Turns: Homilies for the Cycles of the Year, released this month."

Is this common, or does it mean they really, really approve of this collection?
In love did God create the world; in love does he guide it ...; in love is he going wondrously to transform it. --Abba Isaac

Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity. --Climacus

I do not know why they endorsed this book, nor whether it is common. OTOH, I was privileged to hear a lecture by him and I have got to say that he is truly gifted.
