From the Back Cover
"I welcome with great joy the launch of this new collection of commentaries on the Bible because the project corresponds perfectly to a pressing need in the Church. I am speaking about exegetical studies that are well grounded from a scholarly point of view but not overburdened with technical details, and at the same time related to the riches of ancient interpretation, nourishing for spiritual life, and useful for catechesis, preaching, evangelization, and other forms of pastoral ministry. This is the kind of commentary for which the majority of readers have a great desire."--Albert Cardinal Vanhoye, SJ
, Pontifical Biblical Institute, former secretary of the Pontifical Biblical Commission
"By bringing together historical background, exegetical interpretation, church tradition, theological reflection, and pastoral application, this series promises to enkindle thoughtful discussion about the implications of the New Testament for lived Christian faith in the Church today."--Katherine Hayes
, Seminary of the Immaculate Conception

, University of Virginia
"The Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture is an ideal tool for living our faith more deeply. This extraordinary resource combines superior scholarship and a vivid, accessible style that will serve the interested layperson and the serious scholar equally well. It should be on the shelf of every committed Catholic believer. I highly recommend it."--Charles J. Chaput, OFM Cap
