The Franciscan Moral Vision: Responding to God's Love

Edited by Tom Nairn

Additional DescriptionMore Details

In the last half century, contemporary Catholic moral theology has developed at a rapid pace. Franciscan scholars have played a major part in this renewal of contemporary moral theology. Yet, these moral insights from the Franciscan tradition have, to a great extent, been overlooked by the English speaking world since many of the
works have not been available in English. The authors of this volume of essays hope that this contribution on the Franciscan moral vision will help to broaden the conversation regarding moral theology and continue the work already accomplished by the many authors working in non-English languages. Scholar contributors to this volume of essays include Joseph Chinnici, Kenan Osborne, Thomas Shannon, Thomas Nairn and Mary Beth Ingham.

The First-Gospel, Genesis 3:15

by Dominic J. Unger, OFM Cap
edited by Eligius Buytaert, OFM

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Exegetes as well as other theologians will like to learn how the First-Gospel was understood by the Fathers of the Church and the modern scholars, as well as in official documents. Throughout the centuries Genesis 3:15 played an all-important role in Mariology. In 1854 Pope Pius IX appealed to the traditional interpretation of Genesis 3:15 as a proof for the Virgin Mother's immunity from sin, even original sin. The Pope held that a sufficient number of the Fathers and of ecclesiastical writers held the Christological and Marian interpretation of the First-gospel to warrant him to use it as an argument from Scripture for the complete victory of Mary over Satan, for her absolute immunity from all sin. Catholics in general accepted the Pope's interpretation. Only non-Catholics complained about the Pope's use of Genesis 3:15. This book provides an in-depth examination of Genesis and its connection to Mary's Immaculate Conception within the context of a pre-Vatican II environment.

Stoking the Fire of Hope: Fioretti for Our Times

by Hermann J. Schaluck, OFM
 
Fioretti
Please click HERE for a sample of the book.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

The narratives - or, Fioretti (an anonymous collection of texts from the fourteenth century about the early days of the Franciscan family) - presented in this book attempt to draw from subjective experiences and events in today's Franciscan family on several continents and in many cultures. In the metaphors and comparisons of picturesque and sometimes unusual language, they present to Francis's brothers and sisters today's problems and challenges and the question of the meaning of the Franciscan heritage in contexts different from that of the Middle Ages.

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
