The Ancient Christian Devotional Series provides a curated collection of quotations from the early church fathers as found in InterVarsity Press’ monumental Ancient Christian Commentary on Sacred Scripture series. Organized around the three-year lectionary cycle in use in a variety of churches, the editors of this set have drawn out the themes of each week and selected key quotations on every Bible passage in the Revised Common Lectionary. Each week’s entry elaborates on the connection between the biblical texts and helps you to read the Bible through the eyes of those key figures in the early church. Also including opening and closing prayers for each week, this set is a great tool for sermon preparation as well as a great devotional aid for the layman.
