Parables are subject of new Jesus Christ volume

Jesus Christ: His Life & Teaching is available in paperback and eBook

Saint Vladimir’s Seminary (SVS) Press has released the fourth volume of Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev’s landmark Jesus Christ: His Life and Teaching.

This fourth book explores the most distinct aspect of Jesus' teaching ministry: his parables. The parables are explored from multiple angles, giving due consideration both to modern biblical scholarship and the insights it can give, as well as the ancient tradition of the Church and the extensive commentaries of the Church Fathers.

"This study is detailed and thorough, while still remaining accessible to readers. This volume is a must-have resource for the preachers and teachers of Christ’s Church, as well as anyone ready and willing to be taught by the Master himself," said biblical scholar and popular podcast host The Rev. Stephen De Young, Ph.D.

SVS Press plans to release the remaining two installments of Metropolitan Hilarion’s multi-volume work on the life and message of Jesus as they are translated into English.

Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev is the chairman of the Department of External Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate. He has authored numerous works on theology and church history, and is an internationally recognized composer of liturgical music. Several of his works are available through SVS Press, including his multi-volume Orthodox ChristianityPrayer: Encounter with the Living God, and Christ the Conqueror of Hell.

These books and more can be purchased online, at SVSPress.com, or by calling 1-800-204-BOOK (2665).
