The Jerome Biblical Commentary for the Twenty-First Century
Third Fully Revised EditionEdited by: John J Collins; Gina Hens-Piazza; Barbara Reid, OP; Donald Senior, CP
Foreword by Pope Francis
In this new fully revised edition, the publication of which has been welcomed by Pope Francis, the entire content of the commentary has been revised to bring it up-to-date with the very latest scholarship, featuring the leading international Catholic scholars of our day.
Whilst based on the historical critical method of Biblical study, the contributors draw in a range of more contemporary approaches to the biblical texts. The pool of contributors has also been broadened outside north America and Western Europe to include a more diverse range of perspectives, ensuring that the Jerome speaks more comprehensively to a global Church. The 'General Articles' section has been revised to include articles on new approaches to the study of the bible and on the interpretation of the bible in diverse pastoral contexts.
This magnificent third edition will be essential reading for all those who possess existing editions of The Jerome; but it will also find a new generation of readers, eager to engage the scriptures within the tradition and teaching of the Church.
