Orthodox Bible Study Companion by Fr. Lawrence Farley
« on: February 04, 2012, 08:40:44 AM »
Hi friends, brothers, and sisters,

 I am completely sold on this series of NT commentaries authored by Fr. Lawrence Farley.  The one pictured below is the only one I currently own, but I plan on ordering all of them (one by one of course).  Any y'all have any of these commentaries?  I really can't say enough good about them.

In ICXC,

 Gabriel

I've read 4. They're great. I don't know why they aren't better known.

You inspired me to start collecting as well.  The head priest here at our church has the whole collection & i've just "balked" at getting more books, but these are definitely worth it.  time to start!
