Description

"Any observer of contemporary culture will recognize that Anderson's and Keating's lucid commentaries arrive at just the right time, when Catholics at the parish level and in undergraduate and seminary coursework desperately need resources that acquaint them with the scriptural text, the broader scriptural context, and the ways in which scriptural passages have been understood and lived within the Church's rich tradition. Well instructed in contemporary scholarship, Anderson and Keating put us all in their debt by focusing firmly on the heart of the matter--namely, learning from the letters of James and John how to live and love as Christians in a fallen world."
--Matthew Levering, Mundelein Seminary

"In their volume on the Letter of James and the Letters of John, Anderson and Keating have succeeded admirably in advancing the aims that the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series has set for itself. The exposition of the inspired text is clear and easily accessible, rich in making connections with the rest of the Bible and the other sources of revelation, and always focused on sharing the saving message the Lord has for his people--all done with scholarly excellence. This work is a particularly welcome resource for the Church as it strives to share the word of God with the world in the New Evangelization."
--Allen H. Vigneron, Archbishop of Detroit

Praise for the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture

"By bringing together historical background, exegetical interpretation, Church tradition, theological reflection, and pastoral application, this series promises to enkindle thoughtful discussion about the implications of the New Testament for lived Christian faith in the Church today. Its accessible format and multi-angled approach offer a model for teaching and ministry."
--Katherine Hayes, Seminary of the Immaculate Conception
