Edited by Timothy J. Johnson

Additional DescriptionMore Details

The twelfth volume of the BTTS Series provides the careful reader with rich meditation through the liturgical year as well as new insights into the spiritual and apostolic formation of Bonaventure’s Franciscan confreres.

"Bonaventure gives his readers more than mere material that can be adapted for a new generation of sermons. As Johnson elucidates in his valuable Introduction, Bonaventure is also consciously constructing within his Franciscan confreres a paradigm of the order's spirituality and apostolic activity. These carefully translated sermons are enjoyable to read, as they bring to life the driving forces underlying the spirituality of one of the great doctors of the Church."

St. Bonaventure's Commentary on John's Gospel: Thirty Days of Reflection and Prayer

by Robert J. Karris, O.F.M.
Pre-Order Today!
Release Date: January 2013 – Now Available!

Additional DescriptionMore Details

From author Robert J. Karris, O.F.M.: It seems that a word of general orientation is in order for those coming to Bonaventure's Commentary on the Gospel of John for the first time. Bonaventure's style of commentary consists of a detailed outline of the text, running commentary on the individual verses, and answers to questions that arise from the text. In my selection of the Johannine passages for thirty days, I have given preferential treatment to those passages used in the liturgy during Cycle B and for Christmas, Sundays in Lent, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Sundays after Easter.

Perhaps preachers may want to share with their congregations interpretations that are so old that they are new, that sparkle because Bonaventure has singled out the very best from tradition, and that challenge our hackneyed ways of interpreting a favorite passage such as Jesus healing of a man who had been disabled for thirty-eight years (John 5).

Each day is arranged in the following manner. At the beginning I tell readers what passage from John's Gospel to read and meditate upon. Then I provide Bonaventure's commentary on one or two verses of the passage under consideration. My Reflection follows Bonaventure's interpretation. In the Reflection I relate Bonaventure's commentary to the rest of the passage being interpreted, to contemporary exposition, and to themes in the rest of the Gospel. I conclude each day with a Prayer, which is meant to be a springboard for readers own prayers.

In the tradition of lectio divina, Bob Karris, O.F.M., offers us a way to prayerfully explore the Seraphic Doctor's Commentary on the Gospel of John. Karris has insightfully selected thirty gospel texts with Bonaventure's comments to help us deepen our Christian discipleship.This is Franciscan scholarship at its finest: to lead one to an encounter with the Living Lord! --Michael Perry, O.F.M., Vicar General, Order of Friars Minor, Rome

In Thirty Days author and reader undertake a month-long pilgrimage into wisdom. Here a master of scriptural theology unites the best in contemporary scholarship with the best in medieval Franciscan contemplation on the Word of God. Karris's usual combination of a pithy and illuminating style with a deep and enriching content invites us into a feast of learning. The result for both preacher and receiver: a spiritual experience of knowledge, meditation, prayer, and application to daily life.
--Joseph P. Chinnici, O.F.M., Franciscan School of Theology, Berkeley, California

For more than a decade, Robert J. Karris renowned Lucan scholar has applied his exegetical expertise to the recovery of St. Bonaventure s genius as medieval master of the sacred page. While certain works of Bonaventure are famous treatises on theological themes (e.g., The Itinerarium Mentis in Deum, The Breviloquium), his magisterial works of Scripture commentary have only recently started being available in English. Having completed the translation of Bonaventurean Commentaries on John and Luke, Fr. Karris now seeks to lead us into the mine of hidden gems of reflection. The work is itself a jewel. Short, pithy extracts of Bonaventure's writing, reflections that bridge the gap from medieval to post-modern minds, and short prayerful responses to round out a busy person's meditation on the Word. These are the clear, marvelously assembled contents of this small vade mecum. This good venture into the Seraphic Doctor's works honors the original author. If you love standing in the stream of Christian tradition experienced as ever ancient, ever new, you will love this book.
--Margaret Carney, O.S.F. , St. Bonaventure University

Soul In Ascent, The

by Timothy Johnson
Pre-Order Today!
Release Date: January 2013 – Now Available!

Additional DescriptionMore Details

First published by Franciscan Press in 2000, Dr. Timothy J Johnson’s The Soul in Ascent: Bonaventure on Poverty, Prayer and Union with God has offered a thorough textual study of the importance of prayer in Bonaventure’s theology and life. This new edition is updated to include Johnson’s most recent work on Bonaventure’s Sunday Sermons sourced from his work, The Sunday Sermons of St. Bonaventure – Bonaventure Texts in Translation Series. This new edition is a must-read book for anyone interested in Franciscan spirituality and theology.

Again, the scholarship of Timothy Johnson allows Bonaventure’s prayer and preaching to be powerfully alive in our own day. The first is the movement of the Spirit in the depths of heart and the second the proclamation of the Spirit in the life of the Church.
- J. A. Wayne Hellmann, OFM Conv., Saint Louis University

Tim Johnson’s study on prayer in Saint Bonaventure stands alone like a tall tree in the field of Franciscan studies. The Soul in Ascent gives readers the only thorough textual study introducing Bonaventure’s practice of prayer.
- Ingrid Peterson, OSF

If Francis discovered that prayer is an activity of the Spirit, Bonaventure was able to identify Francis’s unique charism of prayer: that of the poor. Johnson’s work is a wonderful tool that will be cherished by those eager to deepen the “Spirit of holy prayer.”
