A Necessary Resource Jun 23, 2009
This text is a necessary resource for anyone who is researching or studying the development of Roman Catholic biblical research or teaching in the field, be it school or parish. The importance of the Second Vatican Council, and the scholars who played an important role, including then Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, is highlighted through out the chapters.
The book is laid out in such that it easy to follow and very clear in its content. This book is a great tool for those wanting to expand their understanding of the role Scripture holds in the Catholic tradtion. I would recommend this book for anyone wanting to expand their study of role of Scripture in the Church.

Scripture: Dei Verbum Jun 27, 2008
A real treasure trove for anyone who is minded and serious in truly understanding how the Church regard the Sacred Scripture in relation to Revelation and Tradition along with the Magisterium. This should be a basic resource material for all lay persons seeking a deeper grasp of the faith and particuarly for apologists, catechists and evangelizers of the word of God.
