Bible Maker: Jerome
EUR€4.99New Kobo Germany
Bible Maker: Jerome is a book of historical fiction about the translator of the Latin Vulgate Bible. This 4th century saint was a bridge between the Christian Church of the East and the West, serving the West as a papal secretary and monastic pioneer, but spending most of his adult life in Bethlehem in the East as a biblical exegete, translator, and monk. Bible Maker: Jerome uses the vast corpus of writings of this Doctor of the Church as the framework for a fresh look at this outspoken apologist and biblical scholar. Christianity's ascendancy in Rome under Constantine, the Arian heresy, the first two general church councils at Nicea and Constantiople. all were part of Jerome's controversial life. Bible Maker: Jerome is more than fiction. it is fascinating Church history brought to life.
