A great introductory Bible study that shows that the early Church was the Catholic Church and that the Bible is a Catholic book. Received recommendations from 14 bishops when first published and went through at least 16 editions. This commentary is not for scholars, but rather for the "ordinary" Catholic. It hands on to new generations the classic Scriptural teachings on faith and morals - from both Old Testament and New Testament - in a manner that is easy to understand.

A typical chapter will first tell the Bible story, based on the Douay-Rheims Bible, with many fascinating explanations of particular words and phrases. Then follow many brief explanations of topics in the Scripture passage, showing clearly the Catholic doctrines that are contained there. These include teachings on the Church, the Mass, the Sacraments - especially the Holy Eucharist - Sanctifying Grace, intercessory prayer, Mortal Sin and Venial Sin, Forgiveness, the Will of God, Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and much more.

Finally, a brief "application" to daily life is given in each chapter. (Some of these are aimed at youth, yet overall they apply to everyone.) Every Catholic family, every classroom, every home school, every catechist and every priest should have a well - used copy of A Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture.

844 pp, softcover, Includes a special 30 page index.
