Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans by Origen( Book )
23 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,079 libraries worldwide
"This volume completes the first English translation of Rufinus's Latin version of Origen of Alexandria's Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans and contains Origen's detailed exegesis of Romans 6:12-16:27." "In Books 6-10 Origen carries through to completion his program, begun in Books 1-5, of defending human freedom and of opposing the natural predestinarian doctrine of the sects founded by the Gnostic heretics Marcion, Valentinus, and Basilides. These schools relied heavily on texts from Paul, interpreted in isolation from the rest of Scripture, not only to deny free will but to support the doctrine that salvation is determined by the nature one receives at birth, whether good or evil. In contrast Origen clarifies passages in Romans by citations from Paul's other letters, from the Gospels, and from the Old Testament. He attempts to construct a coherent and unified "biblical theology." Origen views human beings as chosen or rejected by God deservedly; everyone has it within his own power whether he becomes a servant of God or of sin, a vessel of wrath or of mercy." "Readers will find interesting and thought-provoking discussions of all the important theological themes and terms of Romans: faith, hope, love, works, justification, election, law, Israel, Gentiles, Church, sin, death, flesh, body, glory, etc."--Jacket

Contra Celsum by Origen( Book )
56 editions published between 1481 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 852 libraries worldwide
Few works of the early Church are as interesting to the modern reader or as important to the historian as Origen's reply to the attack on Christianity made by the pagan Celsus. Contra Celsum (or Against Celsus) is the culmination of the great apologetic movement of the second and third centuries AD, and is for the Greek Church what St Augustine's City of God is for Western Christendom. It is also one of the chief monuments of the coming together of ancient Greek culture and the new faith of the expanding Christian society. Thus Origen's work is of interest not only to the historian and theologian, but also to the Hellenist. Henry Chadwick's English translation is preceded by a substantial introduction which includes discussion on Celsus' identity and theological outlook, as well as an account of Origen's philosophical background and method

Homilies on Luke ; Fragments on Luke by Origen( Book )
9 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 583 libraries worldwide
Origen assumed that each word had a meaning that is both profound and relevant to the reader - for the Holy Spirit is never trite and what the Holy Spirit says must always touch the hearer. This volume, the first English translation of the extant homilies and of fragments from the commentary on Luke, is an important addition to the growing body of Origen's work now available in English
Homilies on Jeremiah : Homily on 1 Kings 28 by Origen( Book )
10 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 573 libraries worldwide
In this collection, Origen seeks understanding of the significance of the hostility of the Chosen People towards the Prophet Jeremiah before their captivity in Babylon. Origen in many ways identified with the great prophet and thought of Jeremiah as a type for Christ in the Hebrew Scriptures. Origen realized that Jeremiah came at a crucial time in the history of Israel, the time of captivity, and he views this event and the events around it as pregnant with meaning for the people of his own time

Die Homilien zum Buch Genesis by Origen( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in German and Latin and held by 47 libraries worldwide
The main focus of Origen|#x00B4;s work was exegesis of the Bible - in large commentaries, but also in sermons, which explore in particular the Old Testament allegorically and typologically. Origen distinguishes between a literal and a figurative, moral-spiritual interpretation of the Holy Scripture. Especially in the case of his sermons on the Book of Genesis it is fascinating to follow how Origen as teacher and pastor attempts to convey to the congregation the many different aspects of holy insights, from cosmology to the allegorical interpretation of Lot|#x00B4;s wife being turned into a pillar of salt
