Item Description...
Overview
This compilation is an important new resource for every discipline of ecclesiastical studies. Its detailed resume of scriptural pronouncements from the Second Century to Benedict XVI, offers a comprehensive summary of the trends and evolution of biblical analysis. Typical categories treat of Christology, the Church, the Jewis people, Bible interpretation, etc. all systematically organized in this single volume. These and other documents are indispensable resources for students of theology and history. A long and remarkable introduction presents the historical context of the documents. Care is also taken to explain their various levels of authority so as to avoid lending same value judgment to each one indiscriminately. This book appears at an especially auspicious time given the anticipated 2008 Synod of Bishops whose theme will be: "The Word of God in the LIfe and Mission of the Church."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Guide to Catholic Teaching on the Scriptures  Apr 19, 2010
This is a comprehensive and well-organised guide to official and systematic Catholic teachings on the Bible from the second century CE up to 2006, containing extracts indicating the substance of all major documents relevant to the subject and a few more important texts in full (for example, the 1965 dogmatic constitution 'Dei Verbum').

Given that most of these texts are available on the internet (a quick search will reveal that many can be found on the Vatican website and others elsewhere) the book functions as an incredibly detailed starting point for more in-depth research, and can easily be skimmed as a chronological account of developing church teaching. Its invaluable for the interested amateur, and would be a useful reference volume even for the expert. I've found it of great benefit while studying for a BA in theology.

Only drawback: the book is published in India, and the paper quality is sub-par for what we might expect in the western market - although I don't personally mind because the scent and feel of the pages reminds me of happy times spent in the Asian subcontinent many years ago - but this doesn't invalidate the book's usefulness or durability in any way. Unhesitatingly recommended as very good value for money.
 
Awful Quality + Misleading Title = Garbage Product  Dec 22, 2009
This product did not have a publishers description, but I trusted in it's title that it would contain The Official Documents of the Catholic Church. Well... *excerpts* from them. And very small ones at that - a simple paragraph in some intances.

Which I might have put up with if the quality of workmanship wasn't so horrible: The book binding sounded weak just pulling it out of the box and opening it; I could picture pages falling away within a month. And speaking of the pages, they look like they were cut by hand. By a drunk. With no light. In a hurricane. They were at least on a 10 degree kilter, and the text inside was printed off center from the slant of the page. Just horrible, horrible, horrible.

Whoever is responsible for producing this book and naming it should be ashamed of themselves.

Big disappointment, I've requested a refund from this site. I guess I'll just read the Church documents in their entirety from the Vatican website or others that have them.
