I am a layperson, a believing and practicing Roman Catholic, a disciple of Christ. I have a bachelor's degree in philosophy and theology from Boston College. I have been writing and publishing Catholic theology books and articles for many years. I have recently completed a comprehensive work of Catholic moral theology: The Catechism of Catholic Ethics. I am a Roman Catholic theologian, faithful to the teaching authority of the Church.
I worked nearly every day for five years to translate the entire Latin Bible into English. My translation, the Catholic Public Domain Version (CPDV), was translated from the Latin Vulgate using the Challoner Douay Bible as a guide. The CPDV adheres to the Vatican Norms for Bible Translation; it is a fairly literal translation which does not impose inclusive language or political correctness on the text. The Old Testament was translated in the light of the New Testament, and both Testaments were translated in the light of Roman Catholic teaching.
