This Month Only: Get the Vulgate and Two Interlinears for Under $5

Verbum’s Free Book of the Month for April links three important study resources: The Clementine Vulgate (free), the Lexham Reverse Interlinear Vulgate: New Testament ($1.99), and the Lexham Reverse Interlinear Vulgate: Old Testament ($2.99).

You get all three for under $5—and you’ll definitely want to get all three. Here’s why:

The Clementine Vulgate is a prerequisite resource for both reverse interlinears. Because the interlinears don’t come preloaded with the Vulgate, the free resource is needed to make them work.

Start with free

Let’s start with the free resource. Commissioned by Pope Damasus I and prepared c. AD 383–405, Jerome’s Vulgate rapidly became the standard version of the Bible in the West and remained so for centuries.

Some years later, the Clementine Vulgate became the official edition of the Latin Vulgate, corrected and standardized following the Council of Trent and promulgated in 1592 by Pope Clement VIII. It remained as the official Latin Bible text for the Roman Catholic Church until the end of the twentieth century.

    Study Scripture with the Pope

    Free Book of the Month

    Scott Hahn is one of the most prominent Catholic authors and theologians of our time. A former Presbyterian minister, Hahn entered the Catholic Church in 1986 and has since become a bestselling author and respected professor of Scripture. “My work is about reading the Bible,” Hahn writes, “reading it with you, and reading it ‘from the heart of the Church.’”

    In Covenant and Communion, Hahn offers a probing look at Benedict’s theology, providing a clear and concise introduction to the 265th pope’s life and work. Hahn argues that the heart of Benedict’s theology is salvation history and the Bible, and he shows how Benedict accepts historical criticism—but recognizes its limits. Examining how Benedict reads the overall narrative of Scripture, Hahn shows how Benedict puts it to work in theology, liturgy, and Christian discipleship. You can get it free this December.

    Move from there to Hahn’s presentation of 1 and 2 Chronicles as a theological interpretation of Israel’s history, emphasizing the liturgical structure and content of Chronicles and providing fresh insight on salvation—past, present, and future. It’s yours this month for only $1.99.

    Are you saved by faith or by works?

    Free Book of the Month

    The debate on the topic of faith and works has been long-standing and is arguably the pinnacle theological topic surrounding the issues that sparked the Protestant Reformation. For topics like this, there is nothing more valuable than going back to learn from the theological powerhouses of the days of the early church. St. Augustine is nearly unmatched in his ability to properly help us navigate such deep topics. Get this book for free, and gain a new understanding into this important topic.

    From there you can then study Augustine’s treatise on the Sermon on the Mount. This work is certainly complementary to his study on faith and works, as the Sermon on the Mount shows us how the New Law that Jesus brought us was even more demanding than the Old Law, because the New Law requires us to love as God loves (Matthew 5:43-45).
