Good Friday sermon translations forthcoming with Saint Vladimir’s Seminary Press

Happy today to share that SVS Press has entered into a contract with me to translate and introduce a wide variety of late antique Good Friday sermons focused on the so-called good thief or penitent bandit. Most of the introductions and translations are already completed, since I made this close analysis and careful translation work part of the research for my UVA dissertation on the reception history of Luke 23.39-43. If I understand correctly, the book will be released as part of the Popular Patristics series, which has a really strong brand and print distribution. I’m hopeful it will be a quick publication process, an excellent addition to the series, a helpful resource for patristics scholars, and a source of inspiration for many Good Friday homilies yet to be preached. Thank you to Sarah Werner and Fr Ignatius Green for facilitating the process. Thank you also to Matt Jenson for encouraging me to submit a proposal to SVS Press.
