Overview

This reference book is a compact commentary on the entire Bible that readers can use to familiarize themselves with the methods and paths followed by biblical scholars. It features current theories on dating, historical reconstruction, and archaeological information. Contemporary perspectives and topical articles of an introductory nature include Hermeneutics, Canonicity, Old Testament themes, and coverage of biblical theology. Additional commentary includes articles on Jesus, the early Church, Gnosticism, and the subapostolic church. Especially for seminarians and clergy who require a commentary on the Scriptures both during their formal study of theology and for preaching in their ministry. Also, for those interested in religion and theology on all levels and feel the need for an adequate background in the Bible.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
**** About the first edition (1968) Sheehy observes: "an important work...by Roman Catholic scholars". That edition is also recommended by BCL3. Two-thirds of the material here is new, with an enlarged topical section that includes new articles on Jesus and the early Church. All commentaries and topical articles have been revised and rewritten, with new data incorporated into the presentation reflecting recent archeological findings, manuscript discoveries and publications, and other data resulting in fresh perspectives.
