In this addition to the successful Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture, two respected scholars and Bible teachers interpret James and First, Second, and Third John from within the living tradition of the Church. The commentary provides crisp explanations of the text with helpful sidebars and ideas for application to enrich preaching, group Bible study, and personal reflection. This volume presents excellent biblical scholarship in a format accessible to laypeople with no special training in biblical studies.
About the SeriesThe Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (CCSS) responds to the desire of Catholics to study the Bible in depth and in a way that integrates Scripture with Catholic doctrine, worship, and daily life. The series will include seventeen volumes, offering readable, informative commentary on each book of the New Testament. The CCSS implements the theological principles taught by Vatican II for interpreting Scripture "in accord with the same Spirit by which it was written"—that is, interpreting Scripture in its canonical context and in the light of Catholic tradition and the analogy of faith (Dei Verbum 12).
Packed with features designed to help readers use the Bible more effectively in ministry, each volume in the CCSS provides exegesis as well as reflection and application sections. Other helpful features include: cross-references linking each passage to the Catechism, the Lectionary, and related biblical texts; sidebars with background text and interpretation; quotations from saints and Church Fathers; and a glossary, a list of suggested resources, an index of pastoral topics, and an Index of sidebars.
