Acts of the Apostles (Sacred Scripture Series)

Acts of the Apostles (Sacred Scripture Series)
Kurz, William S Sj
$26.99
What message was the author of Acts seeking to convey, and what would the original audience have understood? How is God speaking to believers today through Acts as it has been used by the church throughout the centuries? In this addition to the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture, respected New Testament scholar William Kurz offers a close reading and explanation of the entire narrative of Acts, grounded in the original Greek but keyed to the NABRE for liturgical use. This volume, like each in the series, relates Scripture to life, is faithfully Catholic, and is supplemented by features designed to help readers understand the Bible more deeply and use it more effectively.

Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters

Apostle of the Crucified Lord: A Theological Introduction to Paul and His Letters
Gorman, Michael J
$48.00

Unlike the many books that treat the apostle Paul merely as a historical figure and his letters as literary relics, this new study by Michael Gorman focuses on the theological message of Paul’s writings, particularly what they have to say to the contemporary church.

An innovative and comprehensive treatment of Paul, including commentary on all of the Pauline letters, Gorman’s Apostle of the Crucified Lord unpacks the many dimensions of Paul’s thought carefully and holistically. Six introductory chapters provide background discussion on Paul’s world, his résumé, his letters, his gospel, his spirituality, and his theology, while the main body of the book covers in turn and in full detail each of the Pauline epistles. Gorman gives the context of each letter, offers a careful reading of the text, and colors his words with insightful quotations from earlier interpreters of Paul.

Enhancing the text itself are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter and numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout. All in all, Apostle of the Crucified Lord is the ideal book for students and any other readers interested in seriously engaging Paul’s challenging letters.

THIS COMPREHENSIVE, WIDELY USED TEXT by Michael Gorman presents a theologically focused, historically grounded interpretation of the apostle Paul and raises significant questions for engaging Paul today. After providing substantial background information on Paul's world, career, letters, gospel, spirituality, and theology, Gorman covers in full detail each of the thirteen Pauline epistles. Enhancing the text are questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter as well as numerous photos, maps, and tables throughout.

The new introduction in this second edition helpfully situates the book within current approaches to Paul. Gorman also brings the conversation up-to-date with major recent developments in Pauline studies and devotes greater attention to themes of participation, transformation, resurrection, justice, and peace.

    Envoy of the Messiah

    Envoy of the Messiah
    Pimentel, Stephen
    $9.95
    In Envoy of the Messiah, Stephen Pimentel completes the journey he began in the popular Witnesses of the Messiah. Envoy of the Messiah invites the reader to walk in the footsteps of St. Paul in his mission to the Gentiles, as told in Acts of the Apostles 16-28. Through nine lessons, each including stimulating discussion questions, the reader is challenged to encounter Christ in the early Church and to follow the example of St. Paul in their lives today. Written in accessible language, yet filled with helpful information and scriptural references, this book is perfect for beginners as well as more advanced biblical scholars. Scripture scholar and popular author Steve Ray praises Envoy of the Messiah for its clarity and theological insight: "Stephen Pimentel's book takes you through the recorded travels and teachings of St. Paul as revealed by Luke. He provides interesting insights and theological understanding useful to both the average reader and the scholar. This book is easy to read, yet full of helpful information and Scriptural detail. It is too bad we can't insert most of this book into our Bibles as footnotes." About the Author: Stephen Pimentel is a writer and speaker on Catholic apologetics and Scripture. He is the author of Witnesses of the Messiah: On the Acts of the Apostles 1-15 (Emmaus Road, 2002) and a contributor to Catholic for a Reason III: Scripture and the Mystery of the Mass (Emmaus Road, 2004).

    Gospel of Mark (Sacred Scripture Series)

    Gospel of Mark (Sacred Scripture Series)
    Healy, Mary
    $25.99
    There is an increasing hunger among Catholics to study the Bible in depth and in a way that integrates Scripture with Catholic doctrine, worship, and daily life. In October 2008, a meeting of the world Synod of Bishops scheduled by Pope Benedict XVI will focus on "The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church." Coinciding with that meeting is the launch of the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (CCSS), a series that responds to the desire of Catholics to access the living Word of God. The Gospel of Mark is the first of seventeen volumes, which will cover the entire New Testament. Written by trusted Catholic biblical scholars, these commentaries interpret Scripture in the light of Catholic tradition. Accessibly written yet substantive, the CCSS fills a gap in the available literature by offering commentaries that cover more than brief study guides but are less daunting than scholarly commentaries.

    Meeting St. Mark Today: Understanding the Man, His Mission, and His Message

    Meeting St. Mark Today: Understanding the Man, His Mission, and His Message
    Harrington, Daniel J
    $12.95

    Meeting St. Mark Today, the final book in Fr. Daniel J. Harrington's series on the Gospels, is a straightforward, practical resource for lay Catholics who want a better understanding of this synoptic Gospel. And, like the other books in the Meeting . . . Today series, it effectively closes the gap between modern biblical scholarship and authentic Christian spirituality.

    The book begins with background information on the Evangelist and his Gospel, and then moves quickly into a concise but complete narrative analysis of the Gospel. Part Three of the book explains how Mark's Gospel provides answers to two essential questions: What did Jesus suffer?, and Why did Jesus suffer? It also proposes answers to the universal question, Why do people suffer? The book's final section includes five meditations on suffering. Additionally, each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion, ideal for group or individual Bible study.

    Ultimately, Meeting St. Mark Today opens the theological treasure chest of this Gospel, enabling us to see how Jesus' suffering and the mystery of the cross can reshape our faith and our lives.

    A clear, concise, and respectful presentation of Mark's Gospel--and what Jesus' suffering means for us

    Daniel J. Harrington, SJ, is well known for his superb New Testament scholarship, but he is also highly regarded for his exceptional ability to bridge the gap between modern biblical scholarship and authentic Christian spirituality. In Meeting St. Mark Today, the final book in this series on the Gospels, Harrington
    has provided another straightforward, practical resource for lay Catholics who want a better understanding of this
    synoptic Gospel.
    The book begins with background information on the Evangelist and his Gospel. It moves quickly into a concise but complete narrative analysis of the Gospel, which clearly demonstrates the human side of Jesus. Part Three of the book explains how Mark's Gospel provides answers to two essential questions: What did Jesus suffer?, and Why did Jesus suffer? It also proposes answers to the universal question, Why do people suffer? The book's final section includes five meditations on suffering, based on lectionary readings from Year B (St. Mark) in the Sunday lectionary cycle.
    Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion, making Meeting St. Mark Today an ideal resource for individual Scripture study or group Bible study. The readings from Mark's Gospel for all Sundays and Feasts in Cycle B are listed at the end of the book.
    Ultimately, Meeting St. Mark Today opens the theological treasure chest of this easily overlooked Gospel, enabling us to see how Jesus' suffering and the mystery of the cross can reshape our faith and our lives.

    Harrington, Daniel J
    $14.99

    The teachings of St. Paul permeate just about everything Christians believe and practice, but many of us know very little about this great apostle of the Church.
    In Meeting Paul Today, one of the most respected scholars in the Catholic faith, Daniel Harrington, SJ, brings Paul and his teachings to life. Harrington, writing with great respect for the apostle and his ministry, covers three main topics in this helpful and highly readable book for any discerning Christian. First, he describes what Paul was really like, from his days as a Pharisee to his arduous years as a missionary. Second, he helps readers interpret Paul's letters through literary, historical, and theological lenses. Finally, he thoughtfully surveys the specific purpose, major points, and other compelling particulars of each epistle.

    Mission of the Messiah: On the Gospel of Luke

    Mission of the Messiah
    Gray, Tim
    $11.95
    Mission of the Messiah is a compelling study of the Gospel of Luke that presents the messianic mission of Jesus as the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. The review questions at the end of each chapter provide fresh material for individual reflection or group discussion. This book is a must for anyone whose heart is burning to know and love Christ more profoundly. From the Introduction: The goal of this study of Luke is to give a taste of that Bible study Jesus gave on the road to Emmaus. As we study God's holy Word, our hearts too will burn with the fire of God's love (cf. Lk. 12:49), just as the disciples experienced God's love on the dusty road to Emmaus. If we read the Gospel with the prayer and contemplation that Saint Thérèse did, we too shall find "fresh lights there, hidden and enthralling meanings." Dr. Tim Gray is the President of the Augustine Institute, an MA program in Sacred Scripture and Evangelization & Catechesis in Denver. He is also Professor of Sacred Scripture at St. John Vianney Theological Seminary. He holds a PhD in Biblical Studies from Catholic University of America, a Th.M. in Scripture from Duke University, and an M.A. in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville. A nationally renowned speaker, Dr. Gray has filmed numerous series for EWTN. He is a partner with Jeff Cavins in The Great Adventure Bible Timeline Catholic Bible study series. Dr. Gray resides in Littleton, Colorado with his wife, Kris, and their son Joseph. About the Series: The Kingdom studies explore the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ as revealed in the New Testament and carried on by His Church. Solid, trustworthy content in language anyone can appreciate.
