Verbum Domini: The Word Of God In The Life And Mission Of The Church
Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation
|Author: Benedict XVI, Pope Emeritus||Year: 2010|
|Publisher: St Pauls Publications Australia||Pages: 216|
"I wrote Verbum Domini because I would like the work of the synod to have a real effect on the life of the Church: on our personal relationship with the sacred Scriptures, on their interpreptation in the liturgy and catechesis, and in scientific research so that the Bible may not be simply a word from the past, but a living and timely word."
This papal document perhaps is the most comprehensive official synthesis ever on the subject of the Scripture and divine revelation. It is masterfully written and presented with a depth which only a skilled theologian and seasoned teacher and pastor could achieve.
