Pope's new document on Sacred Scripture

Pope Benedict has issued the post-synodal apostolic exhortation Verbum Domini [The Word of the Lord], the most important Church document devoted to Sacred Scripture since the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei Verbum), which was promulgated in 1965.

The reviews are coming in, and they're ranging from a theologian's delight, to a masterful and accessible document that puts the Catholic teaching on Scripture in clear terms for everyone.

  2. A PDF file should have opened. Scroll down a bit, as there is some white space at the top.
