Read full description of the books:
As with all of the writings of St. Ephrem of Syria, these hymns overflow with beauty and insight. St. Ephrem takes up the topics of the first few chapters of Genesis and brings out their mystical and spiritual meaning in poetic form. Also included in this book is a selection from St. Ephrem's commentary on Genesis chapters 2 and 3. The lengthy introduction by Sebastian Brock is also extremely helpful and offers a great deal of insight on Genesis, St. Ephrem, Syriac Christianity, hymnography, and many more related topics. For those looking for a good introduction to a Patristic and traditional Christian approach to the accounts of Creation and the Fall in Genesis, this is a great book to start with.

Read information about the authorEphrem the Syrian was a Syriac deacon and a prolific Syriac-language hymnographer and theologian of the 4th century from the region of Syria. His works are hailed by Christians throughout the world, and many denominations venerate him as a saint. He has been declared a Doctor of the Church in Roman Catholicism. He is especially beloved in the Syriac Orthodox Church.
Ephrem wrote a wide variety of hymns, poems, and sermons in verse, as well as prose biblical exegesis. These were works of practical theology for the edification of the church in troubled times. So popular were his works, that, for centuries after his death, Christian authors wrote hundreds of pseudepigraphal works in his name. Ephrem's works witness to an early form of Christianity in which Western ideas take little part. He has been called the most significant of all of the fathers of the Syriac-speaking church tradition.
