The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture does what few of today's students of the Bible could do for themselves. The vast array of writings from the church fathers—including much that is available only in the ancient languages—has been combed for its comment on Scripture. Scholars with a deep knowledge of the fathers and a heart for the church have hand-selected material for each volume, 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.

This supplemental Commentary Index and Resources volume provides never-before-available cumulative Scripture and author indexes covering all twenty-nine volumes of the ACCS. In addition to these exhaustive indexes, you'll find:

  • a general introduction to the ACCS
  • a guide to using the commentary
  • a comprehensive abbreviations list
  • a timeline of the patristic period
  • descriptive sketches of every cited author and work

Readers will find this supplemental volume an indispensable companion for mining treasures in the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture.
