Christendom Press

Christendom Press is the imprint of Christendom College, a Catholic coeducational college institutionally committed to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. Christendom Press is dedicated to the defense of Christian society and the renewal of Catholic intellectual life. The press offers works grounded in a traditional consideration of the liberal arts and the relationship between faith, reason, and culture. At the heart of the press are its historical works, especially those of Warren Carroll, the founder and first president of Christendom College. These and the press's other titles--in the areas of theology, philosophy, politics, and education--often challenge reigning secular or ideological assumptions about history, human nature, politics, and transcendent truth.

Integrating Patristic and Modern Exegesis of Scripture: Theory and an Application to John 7:37–39

Modern biblical exegesis is severely weakened by its tendency to rely only on “science” or “reason” instead of also allowing faith to play its proper interpretive role. One way of overcoming this problem is to enrich modern exegesis by integrating it with the exegesis of the church fathers, who are exemplary in allowing faith to guide their interpretations of the Bible.
