Homilies on the First Epistle of John By Augustine of Hippo
eBook (ePub): $4.92
The First Epistle of John has as its central theme what Augustine saw to be caritas (Christian love). For Augustine to preach on this topic was timely in Hippo, for the Donatist schism had divided... More > the Christian community. In his ten homilies on the First Epistle of John, Augustine develops an outline of his theology on love and explains its implications for the Mystical Body of Christ. He probably preached them between the years 407 and 409. He teaches that those who hate the members of Christ cannot truly love Christ - even if they profess otherwise, even if they were to lay down their lives for Him. These homilies were preached by Augustine to his local community in Hippo and, while often exhibiting great critical acumen, were not intended as models of Scriptural research. They are familiar talks, vivid in style. They are expressed in very simple language, and with the strongest love.

The Orthodox Churches are often accused of simply following religious practices as if they were the same as a lively Christian faith. But the tradition of preaching in the Orthodox Church surely... More > indicates that such criticism is wide of the mark. In Orthodox Churches around the world, homiles are preached at every Liturgy with the intention of encouraging the development of the spiritual life of those who hear, and to reflect week by week on the words of the Holy Scriptures as the Church has organised them for regular reading in the Lectionary. This collection of 52 homilies forms part of that tradition, and has been developed by Father Peter Farrington, a priest of the British Orthodox diocese of the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate. The prayers of the Liturgy intentionally ask that the word of God might be presented to the people through the means of the homily which is given, and also that those who have heard the words of Scripture, and the reflections in the homily might put them into practice.< Less
