Joseph T. Lienhard’s anthology on holy orders in the patristic era, Ministry, is now $2.99 (down from $11.95).

Thomas Halton’s anthology of patristic texts on The Church is now $3.74 (don’t know the original price).

Kilian McDonnell’s Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan: The Trinitarian and Cosmic Order of Salvation is now $6.24 (down from $24.95).

  1. Hey, thanks. I’d wanted to peruse Mazza’s book since discovering it my reading on Luke 24 last year. Now I will…

  2. I picked up an old battered copy of Halton’s book at a used book sale. The original book store sticker was still on it. It sold for 12.95$. In it the patristic texts are related to the teaching of Vatican II’s document Lumen Gentium.

  3. Mike,

    Are you familiar with *Doctors Of The Church: Thirty-Three Men and Women Who Shaped Christianity* by Bernard McGinn (Crossroads Publishing, 1999)?

    I picked this up at a university library the other night. Looks like a good succinct intro to the Doctors.

    By the way, nice blog as well.
