Chasin' down a Hoodoo...


« 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.



http://www.amazon.com/Prison-Epistles-Philippians-Ephesians-Colossians/dp/1888212527/ref=sr_1_10?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1328333369&sr=1-10

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!
