The Four Gospels; commentary by Abp. Averky (Taushev). Differing from most such commentaries, this examines all four Gospels together systematically, from the birth of Our Lord through his ministry to his death and resurrection. Some incidents of course occur in all four Gospels, others in only one or two. The exegsis is firmly grounded in the fathers and tradition of the Church. Enhanced by a subject index and a Scripture index by book, chapter and verse. An invaluable addition to any library of the faithful.
