9780898709766: Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word: Meditations on the Gospel According to Saint Matthew: Vol. 2

To the unstudied eye, Matthew's gospel can seem a terse narrative, almost a historical document and not the tremendously spiritual (and doctrinal) storehouse that it is. Erasmo Leiva here acts as our guide, showing Matthew's prose to be not terse so much as economical--astoundingly so given its depth. The lay reader can derive great profit from reading this. Each short meditation comments on a verse or two, pointing to some facet of the text not immediately apparent.

Leiva's work is scholarly but eminently approachable by the non-technical reader. The tone is very much gustate et videte, quoniam suavis est Dominus [taste and see how good the Lord is]-as it is friend, come up higher. The goal of the book is to help the reader experience the heat of the divine heart/the light of the divine Word.

Leiva points to Matthew's gospel as being deeply ecclesial because it is first Christological. He comments on the Greek text, demonstrating to the reader nuances in the text that defy translation into English without serious revision of the text. Leiva uses linguistic analysis to aid the non-Greek reader with the literal meaning of the text; numerous quotes from the Fathers and the liturgy of the church demonstrate the way the Tradition has lived and read the Word of God. His theological reflection vivifies doctrine by seeking its roots in the words and actions of Jesus.

Descripción Ignatius Press January 2004, 2004. Paper Back. Estado de conservación: New. Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis (Professor of Literature and Theology at the University of San Francisco) invites us to a ''cordial'' reading of St. Matthew's Gospel - cordial as understood by the Church Fathers who, despite being philosophers, theologians, and linguists, ''never forgot that, above all. he Word of God intended to strike their hearts and evoke from them a response aimed at striking the Heart of God.'' Constantly situating the text within its liturgical context and convinced, like patristic exegetes, that every word of Scripture ''seminally contains the whole Word,'' Leiva-Merikakis takes a short Greek phrase, or sometimes a potent individual word, translates it, and proceeds to dance around it, glossing it like a medieval scribe. Indeed, self-described as more scribe than commentator (''one who copies the Word of God and in his enthusiasm cannot refrain from scribbling random thoughts up and down the margins'') these scribblings flow from the pen of a true ''philologian'' - a lover of words. Requesting that we play along as he demonstrates how ''a detailed etymology, a remark on the symmetry and contrasts within a phrase, the way in which the same word used in proximity in two apparently different contexts establishes a subterranean link between seemingly unrelated passages,'' his sole prayer is that the radiance of the Word will shine forth and mold us, that it will ''echo in our souls and establish its own rhythm in our thinking, feeling, and even breathing.'' Indeed, Leiva-Merikakis' short ruminations on the Gospel of St. Matthew invite us on a transforming pilgrimage to the Heart of the Word, providing a taste of what Louis Bouyer has called a ''true lectio divina, a meditative reading of the divine Word that is at once rigorously critical and deeply moving.'' This volume covers chapters 12-18. 800 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería 140318
