Over 60% off the Hermeneia Commentary Series (50 vols.)

The Hermeneia Commentary Series (50 Vols.) is currently $800 off. Take advantage of this sale before it ends December 27!

The Hermeneia series is designed to be a critical and historical commentary to the Bible without arbitrary limits in size or scope. It will utilize the full range of philological and historical tools, including textual criticism (often slighted in modern commentaries), the methods of the history of tradition (including genre and prosodic analysis), and the history of religion. Great for the serious student of the Bible, it will make full use of ancient Semitic and classical languages; at the same time, English translations of all comparative materials—Greek, Latin, Canaanite, or Akkadian—will be supplied alongside the citation of the source in its original language. Insofar as possible, the aim is to provide the student or scholar with full critical discussion of each problem of interpretation and with the primary data upon which the discussion is based.

The editors of Hermeneia impose no systematic-theological perspective upon the series (directly, or indirectly by selection of authors). It is expected that authors will struggle to lay bare the ancient meaning of a biblical work or pericope. In this way the text’s human relevance should become transparent, as is always the case in competent historical discourse. However, the series eschews for itself homiletical translation of the Bible.

First Time Ever: Save 20% on All Verbum 7 Base Packages

There’s never been a better time to get Verbum 7. In fact, this is the first time we have ever offered the general public 20% off every Verbum 7 base package, and the savings are significant.

How significant? Consider these real-life examples.

Verbum comes with built-in savings

If you bought every book in a base package individually, you would spend up to 90% more. And if you already own a Verbum base package, you’ll save even more.

When you upgrade to Verbum 7, we give you a custom discount based on the books you already own. So you won’t pay for the same book twice.

Let’s say you currently own Verbum 6 Scholar and want to move to Verbum 7 Gold.

For the Gold library, you’ll get 20% off the regular price. But because you will already own some of the books included in the Scholar library, you’ll pay even less. In the end, you’ll get nearly half off overall, and your custom price is just $510.32. That’s over $1,300 off the regular price.

A step down is still a step up

In either case (and in every upgrade), pricing takes into account what you already own. And no matter your upgrade path or what’s added, rest assured: you always keep your current library.

In fact, if you own Verbum 6 Master and purchase Verbum 7 Silver, that’s still an upgrade. You aren’t losing any books. You’ve just found an affordable way to add to the books you already enjoy—and you get all the Verbum 7 features!

Explore your options

Verbum 6 to Verbum 7, Basic to Bronze, Silver to Gold… the upgrade paths include too many combinations to fully address here. Instead, here’s a base package comparison chart to help you scope out pricing, library lists, and features for each version. With it you can better determine which combination suits you best in your daily studies, research, and ministry.

Questions? Just call a Resource Expert at 877-542-7664 to find the base package that’s right for you. They’re always ready to help.

Why Now is the Time to Upgrade to Verbum 7 Diamond

Verbum 7 Diamond is 20% off!

Whether you’re just starting out with Verbum, own an earlier version of the software, or just want to upgrade your Verbum 7 library, now is the perfect time to get a base package. For a limited time, Verbum 7 Diamond is 20% off. Here are some things to consider:

You will encounter Pope Benedict’s influencer

Fathers of the Church Series (127 vols.)Hans Urs von Balthasar was considered to be one of the most important Catholic writers and theologians of the twentieth century. Pope Benedict had this to say about him: “. . . meeting Balthasar was for me the beginning of a lifelong friendship I can only be thankful for. Never again have I found anyone with such a comprehensive theological and humanistic education as Balthasar . . . and I cannot even begin to say how much I owe to my encounter with him.”

Balthasar is most famously known for his sixteen-volume Theological Trilogy, which alone would cost you around $450. However, you can get get it included with Verbum 7 Diamond, and then you would be paying about 1/10th of the price for those same titles, plus you would get the power of Verbum to study those resources in a way that would not be possible without it. If you are upgrading, then dynamic pricing would lower the price even more for you.

You’ll make good use of all those books

Verbum 7 Diamond comes with more than 1,700 resources. That may sound like a lot of books. But will you really use them all? You’re far more likely to use even the most obscure books in your library when compared with a print library. Print books sit on a shelf until you pull them down and open them. Verbum resources reveal biblical insights automatically through its many powerful features. That means you can access everything your library mentions on any passage or any topic in seconds.

So whether you already own hundreds of Verbum books or none, you’ll make good use of a new Verbum base package. (Especially at this price!) More books means better results.

3 Biggest Discounts during Easter

Verbum Easter Sale

We’ve hand-picked 12 of our most popular resources to discount during the Easter Sale. Check out the 3 best deals below, and visit to see everything that’s on sale.

1. 52% off
The Works of St. Thomas Aquinas (18 vols.)

St. Thomas Aquinas is perhaps the most influential theologian of the last 800 years. His prolific writings and personal sanctity earned him the title of “the Angelic Doctor,” and his works are consistently cited by prominent philosophers and theologians (Pope Francis cited St. Thomas 19 times in his recent Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitita). The Works of St. Thomas Aquinas (18 vols.) comprises all of Aquinas’ most famous works, including the Summa Theologica, the Summa contra Gentiles, the Catena Aurea, and a variety of insightful commentaries and homilies. This collection was a bargain at its regular price of $629.99, but it’s currently on sale for just $299.99—that’s 52% off!


2. 29% off
The Way of the Lord Jesus (3 vols.)

First published in 1983, Germain Grisez’s masterful series on moral theology is widely referenced by seminarians, scholars, and studious Catholics. Much like the Summa Theologica, The Way of the Lord Jesus takes an analytic approach to moral theology, offering detailed, relevant answers to common questions and concerns. In print form, this series would take up significant shelf space and cost upwards of $100. During the Verbum Easter Sale, you can get a superior electronic edition for just $59.99!


3. 28% off the
Catholic Mariology Collection (13 vols.)

Drawing from authors such as Pope St. John Paul II, St. Louis de Montfort, Scott Hahn, and others, this collection offers a solid foundation for studying Mary’s role in the Church. Whether you’re looking to deepen your devotion to the Blessed Virgin or simply understand the doctrines surrounding her, the Catholic Mariology Collection (13 vols.) is a valuable resource—all the more so with a $40 Easter discount!

What Does Your Family Bible Look Like?

This guest post was written by Kathryn Heltsley.

For many, the term “family Bible” conjures up images of a large, elaborate book with embossing on the cover and gilt-edged pages. But what if everyone in your family had a Bible in their pocket, purse, or backpack—and used it regularly?

The theme of National Bible Week 2015 is “The Bible: A Book for the Family.” Let’s take a look at how Verbum can help facilitate the use of the Bible in your family.

Verbum puts the Bible in your hands through devices that you use every day. Open up the homepage or mobile app, and there are the day’s Mass Readings. You can also customize your own reading plan—perhaps studying the Gospel of Luke during Advent—and share it with your family or your local parish with Faithlife Groups.

Verbum’s software features bring the Bible to life with historical context, maps, images, root words, and more. Your family can read a passage in the Bible, and then explore pictures of where the narrative took place, and learn about the cultural context. You can discuss the significance of professions like fisherman or tax collector in Biblical times, look up the original Greek and Hebrew meanings of words, compare Bible translations side-by-side, or dig deeper into a text with a biblical commentary.

Church teaching is also relevant and accessible with Verbum. Discuss contemporary issues from a Catholic perspective. As your kids study Catholic teaching, find answers to their questions straight from the Catechism or Youcat with just a few clicks. Let the Doctors of the Church join in your discussions with access to their writings. Verbum has even created a high school theology curriculum based on the USCCB Doctrinal Framework. Whatever your level, Verbum provides a myriad of ways for you and your family to engage with and enjoy Scripture.

Although National Bible Week 2015 is drawing to a close, it’s not too late to save on some key Bible study resources—pick them up before November 22!

Celebrate National Bible Week with Verbum!

National Bible Week

This week the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is celebrating National Bible Week 2015. In keeping with the Synod of Bishops on the Family and Pope Francis’ historic visit to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families, this year’s theme is “The Bible: A Book for the Family”.

In order to help you, your family, and your parish celebrate National Bible Week, we’ve discounted a bunch of relevant resources:

The USCCB has also put together several free resources for parishes and families, encouraging greater engagement with the Word of God. Take a look at their page for tips on making the Word part of your home life, to learn about the sacred practice of Lectio divina, or access an outline for a Scripture Vigil on the themes of Catholic social teaching.

National Bible Week ends on November 21—don’t miss this valuable opportunity to study Scripture with the greater Catholic community!

Are You Ready for the World Meeting of Families?

In conjunction with the Congress and Papal visit to the United States next week, we’re offering resources concerning every aspect of family life. The World Meeting of Families Bundle will expand your knowledge of doctrine, Scripture, and traditions related to the family. This 33-volume set includes a wide range of resources, from contemporary scholarship on parenting and the family to Papal encyclicals such as “Humanae Vitae.”


This bundle features a special introductory discount through September 30th!
