The Epistle Selections of the Ancient Church: An Exegetical Homiletical Treatment

A Series of Epistle Texts for the Entire Church Year

ByRichard Lenski

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“…all epistle texts are selections from letters directed to certain definite persons for a certain important spiritual purpose. What the preacher of today does is to place himself and his hearers in the light of some part of one of these imperishable letters, that now once more the original purpose of this part of the letter may be attained. When this fact is well understood, it will be easier to preach on epistle texts… The opinion that it is much harder to preach on the epistles of the Church Year than on the gospels is really not justified.” — R.C.H. Lenski __Richard C. H. Lenski__ (1864-1936) is best known for his insightful and still invaluable series of New Testament Commentaries.
