An unparalleled resource for Scriptural understanding, personal inspiration, and informed teaching and preaching - 29 print volumes!

The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture does what very few of today's students of the Bible could do for themselves. The vast array of writings from the church fathers—including many that are available only in the ancient languages—have been combed for their comments on Scripture. From these results, scholars with a deep knowledge of the fathers and a heart for the church have hand-selected material for each Bible book, shaping, annotating and introducing it to today's readers. Each portion of commentary has been chosen for its salient insight, its rhetorical power and its faithful representation of the consensual exegesis of the early church.


The ACCS includes commentary by the church fathers on all sixty-six books of the Bible and the Apocrypha, and covers the period from Clement of Rome (second century) to John of Damascus (mid-eighth century). Rendering the ancient Greek, Latin, Coptic and Syriac writings in a lucid English translation allows the living voices of the church in its formative centuries to speak as they engage the sacred page of Scripture. The ACCS also includes introductions by world-renowned patristics scholars, and biographical sketches of the ancient writers.

ENDORSEMENTS:

"The conspectus of patristic exposition that this series offers has been badly needed for several centuries, and the whole Christian world should unite to thank IVP for undertaking to fill the gap. For the ongoing ecumenical conversation, and the accurate application of early Christian thought, and the current hermeneutical debate as well, the Ancient Christian Commentary will prove itself to be a really indispensable resource." —J. I. Packer, Board of Governors Professor of Theology, Regent College


"For those who think that church history began around A.D. 1941, when their pastor was born, this commentary will be a great surprise. Christians throughout the centuries have read the biblical text and nursed their spirits with it and then applied it to their lives. These commentaries reflect that the witness of the Holy Spirit was present in his church throughout the centuries. As a result, we can profit by allowing the ancient Christians to speak to us today." —Haddon Robinson, Harold John Ockenga Distinguished Professor of Preaching, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture fills a long overdue need for scholars and students of the church fathers. Professor Oden has pulled together a sterling team of scholars to provide for all of us fresh translations of the Latin and Greek texts of the fathers relating to their interpretation of the Bible and Apocrypha. Such information will prove immeasurable to those of us who have felt inundated by contemporary interpreters and novel theories of the biblical text. We welcome some new insight from the ancient authors in the early centuries of the church. Many thanks to Thomas Oden and the other editors for this unparalleled work which will be the standard for generations."—H. Wayne House, Distinguished Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, Faith Seminary

Fantastic Resource - Superior Price (8/7/2016)
Reviewed by (Dennis McFadden, Fort Wayne, Indiana) - Ancient Christian Commentary, 29 Vols. for e-Sword

The recent revival of interest in the historic interpretation of the Scriptures from the early centuries after its founding, coupled with a growing awareness of the sterility of the excessively critical and analytical "slice and dice" method of much contemporary biblical scholarship, gave rise to this magnificent 29 vol. series. Here you see the loving treatment of the Bible as the book of the Church, to be interpreted and applied by believing minds and hearts by some of Christianity's greatest thinkers and preachers. Until now, one could either shell out more than a $1,000 to purchase the set in paper or obtain it in digital form for up to $385. eStudySource does the Body of Christ a significant service by making such excellent resources available for a fraction of the costs from other sources.

Excellent Bible Study Resource (1/22/2016)

The ACCS is a commentary series that is worth its weight in gold! The treasures of the Ancient Church Fathers' comments on the Scriptures are inestimable.

Useful (1/22/2016)
Reviewed by (Richard Sanchez, San Antonio, Texas) - Ancient Christian Commentary, 29 Vols. for e-Sword

I have a library full of books that I use for Bible study and sermon preparation. I am finding that this set of commentaries will always be a part of my research. I like to know what the early church fathers thought about a particular verse.

Pastor (10/20/2015)
Reviewed by (James Lowery, Stuart, FL) - Ancient Christian Commentary, 29 Vols. for e-Sword

I have been fascinated by the information in this Commentary. Rather than spending a lot of time finding out what the early Church Fathers thought it is at ones finger tips on ever verse practically. I am certainly enjoying my research building sermons.

Excellent Commentary (10/20/2015)
Reviewed by (John Quigley, Brackettville, Texas) - Ancient Christian Commentary, 29 Vols. for e-Sword

This commentary gives a glimpse into the thinking of the early Church, and also the wonderful scholarship of these men as they lead the Church through troubling times. Truly enjoy reading their thoughts and knowledge of the writings of the scriptures.

Excellent source! (7/3/2015)
Reviewed by (Ray Sheehan, Lewisville, TX) - Ancient Christian Commentary, 29 Vols. for e-Sword

Have always wanted a source such as this, comments and interpretations from the early Church Fathers, many of whom knew Apostles or others who had seen The Lord Jesus Himself. Their understanding of the works and words of the New Testament writers gives wonderful insight, and this well-edited source provides the information well. Would highly recommend to any Bible student.

Review of ACC (1/6/2015)
Reviewed by (Murray Woodfield, Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand) - Ancient Christian Commentary, 29 Vols. for e-Sword

An excellent commentary and I am sure I will use it a lot - it is useful for understanding the source of some, so called, modern ideas. Many are not really modern at all!

A Good Mixutre of Commentary Views (10/29/2014)
Reviewed by (Rodney Chand, San Jose, CA) - Ancient Christian Commentary, 29 Vols. for e-Sword

I own 90% of all E-Sword paid modules and must say that the Ancient Christian Commentary is very interesting as it provides comments from different Church Fathers on passages of the Bible. I suppose being penned originally in the Greek they understood the context better than us when it comes to what was implied in the original language. So while it's not an exhaustive verse by verse commentator's view for each Church Father, it does have the necessary mix which is needy for research and good homilies. If you're like me and really need to exegetic every verse when preparing sermons than I highly suggest this.

Immediately became my eSword fvaorite (10/29/2014)
Reviewed by (William Hart, Arlington, TX) - Ancient Christian Commentary, 29 Vols. for e-Sword

I have all the e-Sword commentaries and the ACCS immediately became the first commentary I look at now when I open a scripture passage. I like it so much I quickly paid $300 for the Logos version for my son. As a minister he is studious and he reported that these commentaries are REALLY good. I will add, that until I started reading from the ACCS, I didn't know Augustine had a sense of humor.

Fathers of Scripture (10/19/2014)
Reviewed by (Bruce Challoner, Lara, Victoria, Australia) - Ancient Christian Commentary, 29 Vols. for e-Sword

Having the Old Testament series in books, it's great to have them all now available at the push of a button on my PC/ipad. There is a gold mine on what the early Church Fathers said on particular passages. This resource is normally not used in private study or sermon preparation due to the many books required to reference from. Now all are available to allow us to know what was said in the first few hundred years as the early church established itself. This is a priceless addition for anyone wanting to know the mind of the early saints. Don't miss it!
