Additional DescriptionMore Details

Bonaventure has many insights to share not only with members of the Franciscan Family, but also with the church at large. From his work on translating and annotating St. Bonaventure’s three-volume Commentary on Luke’s Gospel, noted Scripture scholar Robert Karris has developed this book of reflections for thirty days. Playfully referring to them as “BonaLuke bites,” Karris gives preferential treatment to those passages used in the Sunday lectionary
during Cycle C.

A user-friendly format begins with the passages from Luke’s Gospel followed
by Bonaventure’s commentary on one or two verses under consideration.
Karris’s reflection follows that of Bonaventure and concludes with a prayer.
Some readers may reverse the process as they are meant as springboards for
the readers’ own reflections and prayer.

Today Lukan scholars acknowledge many “Franciscan” themes in Luke’s Gospel. Members of the Franciscan Family will enjoy reacquainting themselves with the charism through the lens of Luke’s Gospel. Perhaps preachers will find that old interpretations are new again and can sparkle because Bonaventure has singled out the very best from tradition to challenge our normal way of interpreting passages familiar through years of liturgical use.

"All those who pray with scripture or who offer Sunday homilies on the readings from Luke's gospel will welcome the latest offering from Robert Karris, OFM. The fruit of many scholarly years with this gospel and Bonaventure's commentary on it, his book ties together "the best of both worlds." The structure of the offerings should prove insightful for those engaged in lectio divina, especially Franciscans, as they attempt to hear the gospel's message for their own lives. I look forward to chewing on BonaLuke Bites."

- Marion C. Moeser, OSF, Associate Professor, Christ the King Seminary

"Fr. Robert Karris offers the reader a triple treat in his Thirty Days with St. Bonaventure’s Commentary on Luke. First, we get his wonderful translation of Bonaventure’s commentary in which Bonaventure’s inspired interpretations are presented with deft skill and amazingly contemporary insights. Second, he offers his own penetrating perspective on both Bonaventure and Luke. And third, he leads the reader from reflection to prayer at the conclusion of each passage.

I have long been a fan of Fr. Karris’s Lukan studies because he is able to make Luke come powerfully alive, not only in my mind but in my heart also. But this book not only enlivens the gospel of Luke, it offers Bonaventure as the guide to new Lukan insights. If anyone needs their interest in the gospel of Luke refreshed or their views of a great medieval mind shaken clean of dust, this book will do it … and in surprising and deeply fulfilling ways."

- Fr. William L. Burton, O.F.M., S.S.L., S.T.D., Assistant Professor, St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary

"In this delightful book, Karris skillfully selects bite-sized bits of his massive work on St. Bonaventure s Commentary on St. Luke, then, with his own reflections, situates the morsels within the larger meal of the Gospel and the work of the Seraphic Doctor. The concluding prayer serves as dessert, leaving the reader both satisfied and wanting more. Not only Franciscans will find rich fare within."

Commentary on the Sentences: Philosophy of God - Works of St. Bonaventure Volume XVI

Bonaventure Texts in Translation Series
translations introduction and notes by RE Houser and Timothy B. Noone

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Without exception, every word of philosophy Bonaventure ever wrote is contained in works explicitly religious - in sermons, works of spiritual direction, and theology. For this reason, we begin by looking at Bonaventure’s conception of theology and the place of philosophical reasoning within it. In his attempt to present a theology that is a “science” which leads us to “wisdom,” Bonaventure uses language that might at first glance seem to be merely metaphorical. However, Bonaventure’s care in using precise and philosophical language to understand God is a tribute to the optimism the greatest Masters of Theology at mid-thirteenth century Paris had in the rational possibilities of the human mind.
This volume has not been designed to cover all the profound points Br. Bonaventure made in treating God philosophically in his Commentary. Instead, it highlights a few critical issues, giving the reader a preliminary view of the whole, before plunging into the vast and refreshing pool that is Bonaventure’s “philosophy of God.”
