The Prayer of St Ephrem: A Biblical Commentary
Fr. William C. Mills

The Prayer of St Ephrem: A Biblical Commentary Fr. William C. Mills
  • Description
  • Reviews

St. Ephrem the Syrian (306-379) is perhaps one of the most prolific Fathers of the Eastern Church, composing four-hundred liturgical hymns and scriptural commentaries, earning him such titles as the Harp of the Spirit and the Pillar of the Church. St. Ephrem is best known for the short prayer, The Prayer of St. Ephrem, which is used throughout the season of Great Lent. The prayer outlines both the sins and virtues of community life: sloth, despair, lusting of power, idle talk; as well as chastity humility, patience, and love for the neighbor. The Prayer of St. Ephrem: A Biblical Commentary provides the reader with the scriptural background to the words and metaphors contained in this short but inspirational prayer. This book is a good resource for either personal devotion or for small group Bible Studies in the parish.
