Volume 2: Agape in the Epistles of St. Paul, the Acts of the Apostles and the Epistles of St. James, St. Peter, and St
  • By Ceslaus Spicq
In this insightful work, the author explores the fundamental Christian virtue of 'agape.' Spicq's genius is the way he combines fine linguistic analysis, exegesis, and theological insight. The three volumes cover most of the New Testament books: Volume 1: 'Agape in the Synoptic Gospels' Volume 2: 'Agape in the Epistles of St. Paul, the Acts of the Apostles, the Epistles of St. James, St. Peter, and St. Jude' Volume 3: 'Agape in the Gospel, Epistles and Apocalypse of St. John' The word 'agape, ' in particular, had acquired so specialized and rich a meaning that it seemed almost a neologism. . . . The final word of the mystery of God and the source of the Christian life is always love. Everything is summed up in love. --from the Introduction Ceslas Spicq, O.P., was an internationally recognized biblical scholar. He is also the author of 'Theological Lexicon of the New Testament' (3 vols.), 'The Trinity and Our Moral Life according the St. Paul, ' and 'The Mystery of Godliness.'
