This is a reprinting of the 1951 / 1953 A Catholic Commentary on Holy Scripture (General Editor - Dom Bernard Orchard). The original is in one volume and the type is very small (8pt). This edition has 11 point, for easier reading. This reprinting will be in three volumes (1) Old Testament (2) New Testament (3) Articles, Maps, and Index.
The theology and orthodoxy of this text is timeless. There are very few Catholic commentaries today that can compare with this text. Each book of the Bible is carefully explained and outlined; the meanings of words in their original languages are brought to light; culture and history bring the text to life.
If you are looking for a faithful, insightful, and clear commentary on the Bible, this commentary is for you.

It would be nice to have an option to purchase a hardbound copy on acid free paper that could be passed down to one's children. I would also be willing to pay extra for a larger 4 volume set which is set in 14 point type. I am 65 and large print books appeal to my tired eyesight. Setting a commentary book like this as an eBook may be too complex because of the balancing between the text, the latin text and the commentary that take place to keep the correct paragraphs in easy reading of each other. eBooks are the only other way to provide 14 point type. Thank you for your consideration and my compliments on a good work.
I was pleased when Daniel told me he was reprinting A Catholic Commentary on Holy Scripture. This has been my favorite commentary for years, but I have always had to tell people to try and find a used copy. Not anymore. This is an excellent commentary - a must for every Catholic home. Tim Staples
