Edited by Daniel M. Clough, M. A. - PB - 264 pages This book is compiled according to the magnificent pattern established by Thomas Aquinas in the Catena Aurea. It is a well reasearched and thoughtfully composed listing of the Commentary of the saint's and Fathers and Doctors of the Church who have written of the first three chapters of Genesis. Unlike aLapide, there is no commentary or analysis of the scripture from the compiler himself but it is a remarkably well done listing of what has been written by the gretest of commentators themselves and although there are some differences of opinion among the saints writings here, yet, the whole of their accumulated commentary presents a remarkably unified picture of the 'mind of the church' from the earliest times through the centuries on the first (and arguably most important) three chapters of Gods' Words to men.
