Overview

"A blessing offered to the whole Church, Tom Stegman's commentary presents the heart of St. Paul's message: the fullness of God's love for us that has opened up a new way of life, empowered by the intimate presence of the Holy Spirit, who shapes us more and more in the likeness of Christ. This inspiring book will encourage numerous Catholics and other Christians in understanding better and accepting more generously a truly Christ-centered existence."--Gerald O'Collins, SJ, Pontifical Gregorian University

Praise for the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture

"Coinciding with the Bishops' Synod on 'The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church,' this seventeen-volume commentary on the New Testament represents a much-needed approach, based on good scholarship but not overloaded with it. The frequent references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church help us to read Holy Scripture with a vivid sense of the living tradition of the Church."--Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna

"The Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture is a landmark achievement in theological interpretation of Scripture in and for the Church. Everything about it is inviting and edifying, from the format, photos, background notes, and cross-references to the rich exposition of the text, quotations from the Church's living tradition, and reflections for contemporary life. It is a wonderful gift to the Catholic Church and a model for the rest of us. Highly recommended for all!"--Michael J. Gorman, St. Mary's Seminary and University, Baltimore

"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

    I really thought that Fr Stegman did a wonderful job with this book. It was an inspiring to read. It was clear that the author could have been more academic than he was but he kept within the scope of a "Popular Commentary" and thus generally within my understanding. Also, the "Reflections and Applications" sections always roots the discussion to the real world.
