Scripture by Ronald D. Witherup, PSS
Book DescriptionAn important addition to the "Rediscovering Vatican II" series, this book by noted biblical scholar, writer, and teacher Ronald Witherup explores Vatican II's teaching on "Scripture", embodied in "Dei Verbum, The Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation". Writing with the lay person in mind, the author recounts how "Dei Verbum" came into being, especially the battles that were fought to bring it to light. The book summarizes in popular format the content and significance of this dogmatic constitution, with an eye toward showing its far-reaching influence on contemporary biblical studies. For those who wish to read further, the author provides an annotated bibliography. The highlights include: the most succinct and focused presentation on a Catholic approach to the Bible currently available; addresses in detail the current controversies that will shape the future; and a convenient digest and commentary on the constitution.
