Sacra Pagina New Testament Commentary Series (18 Vols.)
This series presents fresh translations and modern expositions of every book of the New Testament. The volumes present basic introductory information and close exposition, with each author adopting a specific methodology while maintaining a focus on the issues raised by the New Testament compositions themselves. The goal of Sacra Pagina is to provide sound, critical analysis without any loss of sensitivity to religious meaning. This series is therefore catholic in two senses of the word: inclusive in its methods and perspectives, and shaped by the context of the Catholic tradition.
Berit Olam: Studies in Hebrew Narrative & Poetry (13 vols.)
Written for lay people, Bible scholars, students, and religious leaders, this multi-volume commentary reflects new developments in biblical studies. “Berit Olam” (the “Everlasting Covenant”) brings these latest developments in the literary analysis of the ancient Hebrew texts. Each reading of the books of the Hebrew Bible focuses on the final form of the texts. It approaches them as literary works and recognizes that the craft of poetry and storytelling the ancient Hebrew world provided can be found in them, and that their truth can be better appreciated with a fuller understanding of that art.
