Book - 2014
Rate this:
Post-synodal apostolic exhortation Verbum Domini (The Word of the Lord) released by the Holy Father Benedict XVI to the bishops, clergy, consecrated persons and the lay faithful on the word of God in the life and mission of the church. It is a ground-breaking text on reading Scripture. This work is a commentary on Benedict XVI's remarkable exhortation Verbum domini -The Word of God. He explained: "In the word of God proclaimed and heard, and in the sacraments, Jesus says today, here and now, to each person: 'I am yours.'" This commentary unpacks the meaning of the scriptures for the community of faith so that everyone can indeed meet the Divine Word. Benedict also shows the possible uses of the modern tools of exegesis but also their limitations when dealing with the word given by God to his Church. The book presents a reliable, balanced, theologically insightful, technically pristine and very readable guide through a very deep text.
