Books with a medieval, renaissance, or fantastic flavour...that have earned four stars from Gloriana!
Sampler of some new selections:
Mary Margaret Funk, OSB - excellent exploration of classic Christian approaches to the life of prayer, based largely on the writings of John Cassian, and well adapted to modern interpretation.
Battle: The Cultural Politics of Victorian Anglo-Catholicism
New International Greek New Testament Commentaries - superb commentaries with in-depth treatment of the nuance and historical influences affecting the original texts. It is not necessary to have knowledge of Greek in order to benefit from the commentaries. I use varied works in scripture study, but this series remains my favourite.
