It is time to keep some of those promises I made in Detroit.
First of all, I wanted to let you know about a really interesting set of Biblical commentaries coming out: The Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture. The General Editors are two of the Scripture scholars that I met at Sacred Heart last weekend: Mary Healy and Peter Williamson.
This series will eventually cover the entire New Testament and is intended to foster both personal discipleship and pastoral leadership. It occupies the all important "middle" place between a technical commentary for academics and brief popular works. It is intended for intelligent, college-educated readers whose interest is pastoral and existential rather than academic: pastors, preachers, teachers, catechists, serious lay people. The motto of this series sums it up: "The Word of God for the Life and Mission of the Church" The series is relatively inexpensive and the website even includes questions for personal reflection or small group study.
The first two volumes are The Gospel of Mark (May Healy) and First and Second Timothy/Titus (George T. Montague). Future volumes will be produced by Edward Sri, Tim Grey, Francis Martin and Scott Hahn.
Check it out.
