And you shall sleep restful nights" (St. Ephraim the Syrian).

The Old Testament in the Christian East


Vahan Hovhanessian, ed., The Old Testament as Authoritative Scripture in the Early Churches of the East (Peter Lang, 2010), 137pp.


The editor, who teaches at the Armenian seminary of St. Nersess in New Rochelle, NY, has gathered a dozen scholarly articles on various aspects of the uses of the OT in numerous Eastern Churches, including the Armenian and Syrian. Danylo Kuc is reviewing this for Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies next year.
