The Catholic Biblical Quarterly

There is a vibrancy to each examination and a contemporary relevance to the entire endeavor. The book will delight the Bible reader and those interested in the intersection of Bible and theology generally.
The Bible Today

Whether for personal reading or use in teaching, this little text has much to offer.
Catholic Books Review

A little gem, Scripture as the Soul of Theology brings together outstanding biblical scholars and uses their expertise in the promotion of faith and in service to the church. The volume is both simple and profound, simply profound. Though it could be a quick and easy read, it, like good wine, encourages one to sip slowly and savor the taste.
Alice L. Laffey

These essays exemplify biblical scholarship at its best for they show the nexus between the Scriptures and the life of believers. The topics—spirituality, ethics, the role and status of women, pastoral care and biblical images of God—emerge from the struggles of believers today as they seek to lead lives worthy of the Gospel. This book will engage its readers in a thoughtful and even contemplative way. They will find themselves reflecting on their own experience as their imagination and faith are stimulated by five accomplished biblical theologians.
