This commentary is not an academic, scholarly reference, but a practical, down-to-earth analysis of the entire bible, passage by passage, using the best of modern research and scholarship. Highly recommended for the average person who wishes to understand what the biblical writer is trying to communicate.

I was most pleased by the book I puchased. I was made aware of this books existance by the Decon of our church. I am a catholic christian and I am very involved with my parish. I am an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist,Minister of the word, and I also teach 3 religious education classes RCIA(adult education),Highschool ages 14 and 15 year olds, and 2nd and 3rd grade children. My problem was trying to understand the readings(scripture and gospel), and this book was the best tool I could have found to help me in my responsability to our LORD and GOD. I want to thank you for this book and I also let others know about it so they can find help in explaining and understanding. Again thx.

Dr. Bergant's view of the Old Testament presents it as a series of mythological stories meant to impart religious principles and ideas. This is typical of the so-called Historical Critical methodology. It is in direct conflict with the Church's directive that the text of the Biblical passages are to be understood in the common meaning of the words employed. I could quote numerous Fathers of the Church, Popes, and Vatican Councils to this effect, but will restrict myself to saying that you can look it up in Ott's Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma and Denzinger's The Sources of Catholic Dogma.

Her first error is adopting the Yahwist (J) tradition, Elohist (E) tradition, Deuteronomist (D) tradition, and Priestly (P) tradition schemata for explaining the Pentatuch portion of the Old Testament. Unfortunately, except only in the dreams of the practioners of historical criticism, is there any evidence at all for idea that these books were written over a period of several hundred years by many authors and redactors. The JEPD view of the Bible is the brain child of the German Protestant liberal scholar Julius Wellhausen, expanded and expounded greatly by another Protestant, Bultmann, who passed it on the many modern Catholic theologians, who for reasons known only to God and themselves, studied in Protestant theological seminaries. I should like to point out that on his deathbed, by specifically selecting the Biblical passages to be read out unaltered without comment and hymns to be sung as written, Bultmann appears to have repudiated his historist viewpoint.

For example, Dr. Bergant passes off Genesis as just another creation story having much in common with the creation stories of other peoples.
