The contribution of the Rev. Prof. J. Robert Wright, to the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture, a volume on Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Songs, has now been translated into Russian.

According to the publisher InterVarsity Press, the series is a postcritical revival of the early biblical commentary tradition among the early Church Fathers and Mothers known as the glossa ordinaria, in which commentators on Scripture would interpret the meaning of a word or text in such a way as to encourage theological reflection and spiritual reading. “It is increasingly seen as insufficient merely to learn the original settings of the books of the Bible,” notes Fr. Wright, “without also studying their meanings, often their diverse meanings, attached to them by the patristic writers, especially in the formative period of the early church.”
