On the importance of the Bible in the life and worship of the Catholic Church.

Fifty years ago the Second Vatican Council promulgated documents which still continue to guide the Church.

One of the greatest of these was the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, popularly known as Dei Verbum.

The Bishops of England and Wales, and of Scotland, in their teaching document The Gift of Scripture, build on Dei Verbum and subsequent Church teaching.

This teaching document will further the ‘new season of greater love for Sacred Scripture’ promoted by Pope Benedict XVI in the Synod document Verbum Domini.

This is a new edition of this document originally published in 2005.

  • A reissue of this document to coincide with the publication of ‘Word of the Lord’’.
  • Offers an explanation of Dei Verbum and other Church documents on the subject of scripture.
  • Shows that the Catholic understanding of the Bible combines the ancient and the modern.
  • The document is not just for Catholics but for anyone interested in the Bible.
