Currently I am working through Scott Hahn’s The Kingdom of God as Liturgical Empire: A Theological Commentary on 1-2 Chronicles. I enjoy the way Hahn makes complicated concepts easy to understand.

  • Will Many Be Saved?: What Vatican II Actually Teaches and Its Implications for the New Evangelization — $1.99 (normally $19.99)

    The much-debated question of whether and how people who have not had the chance to hear the gospel can be saved goes back to the beginnings of Christian reflection. In Will Many Be Saved? Ralph Martin focuses primarily on the history of debate and the development of responses to this question within the Roman Catholic Church.

  • 4. Pre-Pub

    Verbum’s Pre-Publication program is how we add new books to our ever-growing catalog. You pre-order books to let us know which resources to invest in, and we give you special discounts in return. Once enough people pre-order a particular resource, we’ll start developing it for use in Verbum.

    This month’s featured Pre-Pub item is the What Are They Saying About… Series (16 vols.), which surveys recent scholarship about biblical books or themes. Respected authors and theologians such as Mark Allan Powell, Daniel J. Harrington, Donald Senior, and Warren Carter examine issues ranging from the authorship and date of biblical texts to Catholic teaching on environmental theology, the nature of the Trinity, liberation and feminist theologies, and the historical Jesus.

    Learn more or pre-order the series.
