This is your last chance to lock in the very best price on the biggest, most important patristic resource we’ve ever offered: The Fathers of the Church Series.

All discounts totaled, you’ll get over 65% off the total print price of this landmark series when you pre-order it right now—but hurry! This huge discount will only last for two more days: it ships this Friday!

With the tools and functionality that Verbum provides, this collection is hands-down the most powerful patristic study tool available anywhere. 

A few people have had questions regarding what’s included in this collection compared to our early Church Fathers Collection. Here are the facts:

  • Though there is a little overlap between this collection and the Early Church Fathers collection, a vast majority of these texts are brand new to Verbum. 
  • Even with the resources that do overlap (such as some of Augustine’s works), the Fathers of the Church Series provides a totally new translation produced by top-tier scholars. Across the board, the Fathers of the Church Series are easier to read and digest.
  • There are maybe 20 or so works in this collection that are available in the public domain. The rest can only be purchased from publishers, and in this collection there are some titles that are exclusive to this collection, which means you can’t find them anywhere else.
  • This series is divided into five main collections which you can choose to purchase individually (see below).

Brilliant scholarship at an incredible price

What makes this collection so valuable isn’t just the sheer immensity of text (at less $.04 per page, the absolute best value anywhere): it’s the brilliant scholarship and translation that this series is renowned for in the English-speaking world. The English translations of both Greek and Latin texts are clear and easy to read, and the scholarship behind them is unsurpassed both in scope and in scale.

For anyone working in or studying patristics or early church history, this comprehensive exposition of the development of Christianity from its early years to post-Nicene maturity is invaluable.

And for those looking to study a particular patristic era, the Fathers of The Church series is broken into five different collections available for purchase on Pre-Pub:

  1. Fathers of the Ante-Nicene Era (23 vols.)
  2. Greek Fathers of the Nicene Era (35 vols.)
  3. Latin Fathers of the Nicene Era (25 vols.)
  4. St. Augustine (30 vols.)
  5. Fathers of the Post-Nicene Era (14 vols.)

We Have a Winner!

The Verbum Easter Giveaway has ended, and we have a winner! Dustin Busse from Oregon is now the proud owner of Verbum Capstone+ and a brand new MacBook Air. Congratulations Dustin!

We were excited to find out that Dustin will be going to seminary this fall, so I asked him a few questions about his upcoming studies:

1. Where are you going to seminary? 

I will be attending Mt. Angel Seminary located here in Oregon.

2. What are you most excited to study? 

At this point, I am very interested in Systematic Theology and Sacred Scripture studies. Having just finished a 27 week series of online courses on Spiritual Theology through www.catholicgospelproject.org, I feel spiritually supercharged as I head into seminary studies. I have been reaping the benefits of a strong devotion to Lectio Divina. As a result I am diving deeper and deeper in Sacred Scripture and soaking up everything I can in terms of the teachings of the Catholic Church throughout the ages.

3. How will Verbum help you with your studies?

Verbum has already been a valuable tool in terms of scripture studies and I have barely scratched the surface of what it has to offer in that regard. I am sure that as I go further into studies in this area a resource like Verbum Capstone+ will be a well of knowledge that I will go back to time and again.

4. Do you have a favorite Catholic author/Church Father that you enjoy reading? Why do you like them? 

I love St. Augustine of Hippo. The Confessions of St. Augustine has been one of my favorite spiritual readings outside of Sacred Scripture. He had such an eloquent way of writing and speaking the to heart as well as the intellect. With his background in rhetoric and study under St. Ambrose, it is no surprise that he can pose a power-packed treatise on a wide array of topics.

I also want to thank everyone at Logos and especially those involved in bringing the Verbum product to the market. I feel that the Catholic world has been starving for a good comprehensive means of scripture study that allows us to tie Sacred Scripture to sound Catholic teachings. As more and more people discover this wonderful resource and learn how to unlock everything in it through its many research tools, it will present the opportunity to grow in leaps and bounds in terms of faith and knowledge.

Thanks again to everyone who entered. We hope you had a wonderful Easter season!

Verbum and Preaching, Part 3: Preaching is Expositional

In the last installment of Verbum and Preaching, we took a look at how preaching should be Christocentric in nature. This time, Jason highlights the importance of expositional preaching and study, showing us how Verbum can aid us in expositional study.

Verbum and Preaching, Part 1: A Brief Introduction

This post is by Jason Stellman, Adult Education Specialist here at Verbum.

Hey everyone, my name’s Jason Stellman. I’m the new Adult Education guy at Verbum.

The reason I’m writing is that I’m planning to start a new series of posts on homiletics and preaching. Until a couple years ago, I was a minister in the Presbyterian Church in America, and my conversion to “the dark side of the Force” caused something of a stir in certain conservative Protestant circles. (If you’re interested, you can view my resignation letter here, my appearance on The Journey Home here, and my address at last year’s Defending the Faith conference in Steubenville here.)

For the past two decades, I’ve been teaching Scripture and theology on a regular basis, predominantly in official, ordained capacities both in broad evangelical and staunch Calvinistic contexts, and more recently to Catholic audiences. My career as a teacher of Scripture to everyone from poor African villagers to European university students to wealthy American suburbanites has enabled me to learn a bit about how to communicate deep truths to diverse audiences with credibility and understanding, in ways that are simple, clear, and engaging. It’s our conviction here at Verbum that the tools we offer can and should be directed toward our clergy, with a special desire to help priests with their weekly preaching ministries.

All that to say, I have a few ideas marinating in my head for how Verbum can help meet this serious need. So stay tuned for more posts and videos on preaching, as well as opportunities for you all to get involved in our efforts to get Verbum into the hands (or onto the screens) of as many Catholic priests and preachers as possible!
