The present volume is a series of sermons on the Sunday readings from the Apostolos, the compilation of epistolary writings of the Apostles, arranged for daily liturgical use in the Orthodox Church. Father James’s homilies are both reverent and engaging: reverent, because Father James has profound veneration for Saints Luke and Paul, from whose epistles the Sunday readings are taken; and engaging, because he never fails to demonstrate the relevance of the Apostolic message for Christians of our time.
