Concise and accessible, this one-volume edition of the New Collegeville Bible Commentary: New Testament allows readers to explore any or all of the books with just one resource alongside their Bibles. The individual commentaries collected here are written by respected scholars, and they break open the biblical texts in a lively fashion. Readers will be able to engage Scripture more deeply and reflect on its meanings, nuances, and imperatives for living a Christian life in the twenty-first century. In this commentary Continuing Liturgical Press continues its long tradition of publishing biblical scholarship and interpretation — and makes possible what Pope Benedict XVI called for in October 2008 at the closing of the world Synod of Bishops on the Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church: “It is necessary for the faithful to have wide access to Sacred Scripture so that people, finding the truth, can grown in authentic love.”
