Editorial Reviews

Review

. . .destined to be a scholar’s manual.
Grace & Truth


For some decades English-speaking students of the Bible have lacked a convenient anthology of important Catholic church pronouncements. The present collection, very ample in scope, admirably fulfills this need. The documents are judiciously selected and in many cases given in fresh and reliable translations. The editor's bibliographical notes will be of great assistance to scholars.
Avery Cardinal Dulles, SJ, Laurence J. McGinley Professor, Fordham University


This collection of documents and bibliographies is an excellent resource for understanding the development of Catholic approaches to Scripture.
The Catholic Biblical Quarterly


A collection of conciliar, papal, and curial documents that record official church teaching on the reading and study of Scripture. The conciliar section includes documents from the Council of Trent and Vatican I and II. The papal documents begin in 1893 with Leo XIII's Providentissimus Deus and include five statements of John Paul II. The curial documents concentrate on the Pontifical Biblical Commission. Footnotes, bibliographies, and indexes provide valuable scholarly tools.
The Catholic Journalist


Dean Béchard has performed a wonderful service in compiling this collection of official Catholic conciliar, papal, and curial documents pertaining to the Bible. His well chosen and well presented anthology shows how the Scriptures have been and are read in the Catholic Church. These authoritative texts will be of great interest not only to biblical specialists, theologians, and church historians, but also to all who want to understand what Catholics think about the Bible and how they interpret it.
Daniel J. Harrington, SJ, Weston Jesuit School of Theology, Cambridge, Massachusetts
