Reviews - What do our customers think?
Cultural, yes...Catholic doctrine? No.  Apr 22, 2006
This book may cover the cultural milieu of the Gospels very well, but there is a good reason it carries no Imprimatur or Nihil Obstat. Earlier in the year, Pilch's gloss on a gospel passage was that it indicated the need for the United States to pass a system of universal healthcare...I kid you not. But this Sunday (2nd of Easter, the appearance of the resurrected Jesus to doubting Thomas) was the last straw. Pilch reads this passage as the apostles experiencing an "altered state of consciousness". In other words, the resurrection was a mirage.

Please, please do not rely on this book for RCIA formation, at least not anything other than the strictly cultural, historical background information.
A very good RCIA resource  Mar 7, 2001
This book, like the cycle A and C books, deals with the Gospel readings for the Cycle B year of the Latin Rite Catholic lectionary. It gives pertinent information on the Mediteranean culture and the times in which Jesus lived. This allows us a deeper insight into Jesus' teachings, and their meanings. This is therefore, a very valuable resource for those working in RCIA, adult education, religious education or for someone who just wants a deeper understanding of the Gospels. Each week is covered by an essay ranging from two to four pages in length. It is written in very easy to understand language making the whole learning process easier andmore enjoyable. I highly recommend this set of books.
