Hooray for Staff Picks! This week's Staff Pick, Fr. Eugen Pentiuc's The Old Testament in Eastern Orthodox Tradition, comes to you from Bryce, who runs the receiving end of things here at the bookstore. Bryce is a second-year student in Holy Cross's MDiv program who studied ethics and philosophy before coming to seminary.
This book was authored by the Old Testament professor here at HCHC and was published during Christmas break my first year.
Besides being authored by a beloved professor, this book is a fascinating, informative, and extremely well-researched investigation of the role of the Old Testament in our tradition.
Fr. Eugen is brilliant and can easily go soaring off above our heads if he wants to, but this book is pleasantly down-to-earth without being patronizing.
Anyone interested in the Old Testament, and especially the historical continuity of the Eastern Orthodox tradition with all of scripture.
