One of the West's four doctors of the church, Jerome (c. 347-419/20) was recognized early on as one of the church's foremost translators, commentators, and advocates of Christian asceticism. Skilled in Hebrew and Greek in addition to his native Latin, he was thoroughly familiar with Jewish traditions and brought this expertise to bear on his understanding of the Old Testament. Beginning in 379, Jerome used his considerable linguistic skills to translate Origen's commentaries and, eventually, to translate and comment on Scripture himself.
This second volume from the Ancient Christian Texts series contains Jerome's commentaries on the twelve minor prophets. Throughout the commentaries Jerome refers frequently to the work of previous commentators, and his spiritual exegesis relies heavily on the exegetical work of Origen - though he acknowledges that 'I have not followed them in everything.' Jerome hears in these texts God's judgment and mercy not only on Israel but especially on the Christian community. By sharing the wisdom he received from these biblical texts, Jerome's magisterial commentaries help us walk more faithfully in God's ways.
