Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word: Meditations on the Gospel According to St. Matthew (Volume 3)
By Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis
In this third volume of Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word, Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis examines the Christologial and ecclesial sense of chapters 19-25 of St. Matthew's Gospel. The lay reader, as well as priests, seminarians, and religious, can derive great profit from reading this work as it is scholarly yet approachable. Each short meditation comments on a verse or two, pointing to some facet of the text not immediately apparent, with the goal of helping the reader experience the heart and light of the Word of God.
