The Most Reverend Bishop Frederick Justus Knecht, D.D., was the late auxiliary bishop of Freiburg, Germany in the early 1900s. His massive work, A Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture, was published in 1923 by the Publisher to the Holy Apostolic See. A considerable number of bishops and archbishops thoroughly enjoyed and recommended the book, calling it "admirable" and "excellent."

Excellent! Apr 15, 2008
Fantastic and easy to read.More of an overview of the Bible than a commentary,but very thorough.I highly recommend this as well as the Haydock Douay Rheims Bible.

Surprisingly concise and easy to read Feb 7, 2007
Considering that this book was published in 1923, it is an incredibly easy book to understand and read. I highly suggest this book as a supplement to your bible reading.
A Good----Practical Commentary on the Bible Mar 9, 2006
"A Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture" is great because it explains a lot of the important biblical events in the Bible. It explains it according to Catholic teaching. There is no Modernist or liberal commentary here. It was recommended by over ten Catholic bishops during the pontificate of His Holiness, Pope Pius XI.
It does not explain every book in the Bible and summarizes much of the important events of the Bible.
For example, the explanation of the Fall of Man in the Garden of Eden is quite excellent, especially the importance of why Adam and Eve were not supposed to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
A must have for every Catholic Home Oct 7, 2005
An absolutely beautifully written book. Easy to understand, totally accurate in its description of events. I recommended the book to family and friends and they all purchased the book.
Once you start reading it, you cannot put it down. My family and friends all share the same opinion, once you start reading the book -- it is hard to stop reading. A wealth of knowledge for all Catholic Lay people -- adults as well as children.
