A New Book Hot Off the Press

I received in the mail today the newest member of my library. The Fathers of the Church series has just published volume 115 of the series, titled, "Commentary on the Twelve Prophets" volume 1 by Cyril of Alexandria, translated and introduced by Greek and Early Church scholar Robert C. Hill.

This is an important book because Cyril was known for his Old Testament exegesis, though this was overshadowed by his brilliance during the Christological controversy. There simply aren't enough of Cyril's writings in English. This was a much needed publication. Volume 2 is set to come out at a later time.
