Item Description...
Overview
There is an increasing hunger among Catholics to study the Bible in depth and in a way that integrates Scripture with Catholic doctrine, worship, and daily life. In October 2008, a meeting of the world Synod of Bishops scheduled by Pope Benedict XVI will focus on "The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church." Coinciding with that meeting is the launch of the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (CCSS), a series that responds to the desire of Catholics to access the living Word of God. The Gospel of Mark is the first of seventeen volumes, which will cover the entire New Testament. Written by trusted Catholic biblical scholars, these commentaries interpret Scripture in the light of Catholic tradition. Accessibly written yet substantive, the CCSS fills a gap in the available literature by offering commentaries that cover more than brief study guides ubt are less daunting than scholarly commentaries.

Awesome book  Aug 11, 2009
I am only about 2/3rds of the way through this book, but I love it. I don't have a theology background, but I like spiritual reading and have wanted to get more in depth in the Scriptures. This book is packed with information and it is presented through eyes of deep faith. I plan on buying more books by Ms. Healy and more in this Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series.
 
Excellent commentary  Jun 22, 2009
I've read a couple of bible commentaries and flipped through several more, trying to find one that is comprehensive and informative. However, most end up simply restating the biblical text in different words with little insight provided.

Healy's commentary on the Gospel of Mark is, I am happy to say, extremely informative, going far beyond the text at hand and connecting that particular text to the context of the history of the times, as well as to other provisions of scripture, both Old and New Testaments. The difficulty in reading any book of the Bible is that, 2000 years later, we inevitably read it in isolation, rather than from the perspective of the times. As such, things often go right over our head. What would have been obvious to a Second Century reader is not even thought relevant by us today. Healy gives us that much-needed context, throwing light on aspects of the Gospel that we otherwise do not see.

(For example, I did not realize, simply from reading the Gospel itself, how much time Jesus spent in territories that were either Gentile or mixed. I did not realize that He had carried His ministry into present-day Jordan and up near if not into Syria.)

On another note, if you are familiar with their writings, you will definitely see the influence of John Paul II and Benedict on Healy.

I hope that the rest of the series is as good, although I am disappointed that they will apparently take a while to be published.
 
A Commentary on the Gospel According to Mark.  Apr 13, 2009
I haven't read through the book, but just flipping through I get the impression I made a good choice.
I am satisfied with the services of this site.
 
Delightful commentary  Mar 27, 2009
I enjoyed reading the commentary for its straightforward and full explanation of Mark's gospel. The commentator gave competing interpretations of difficult passages when necessary; she always provided the background and implications for Mark's readers so that I was able to experience his message to early Christians. The commentary brought out Mark's forceful thrust of Jesus' ministry from casting away demons to establishing God's kingdom. I felt the power of Jesus' life and teaching while I read the commentary.
 
The Gospel of Mark.  Dec 16, 2008
This commentary is much more than an academic commentary. The references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church; its succinct 'reflection and application' paragraphs; its cross referencing with the OT and NT, give a variety of opportunities for greater reflection. The Biblical Background boxes are invaluable for understanding the Sitz in Leben, the cultural background of the time, and the quotations from the Fathers of the Church entitled 'Living Tradition' provides continuity of teaching throughout the ages. There is so much more, anyone can read it and grow in faith. And it's still academic.
