“The Word of God is the source of Christian life, and the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture is an ideal tool for living our faith more deeply. This extraordinary resource combines superior scholarship and a vivid, accessible style that will serve the interested layperson and the serious scholar equally well. It feeds both the mind and the heart and should be on the shelf of every committed Catholic believer.

I highly recommend it.”

If you are interested in deepening your grasp on the written word of God through personal study, there is no better resource to aid you than the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (CCSS).  This series implements the principles taught by Vatican II.  It shows the relationship of Scripture to Catholic doctrine (including the Catechism), worship, and daily life.  Its outstanding authors are not only Scripture scholars, but people with pastoral and teaching experience who know how to communicate.  Every volume of the CCSS is written in an engaging style that is both informative and spiritually nourishing.
