IGNATIUS CATHOLIC STUDY BIBLE (RSV) – New Testament ONLY, authored by Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch at AMAZON.COM

Review: Easy to read (large print), and great commentary. I purchased this Bible a year ago, and was completely blown away by what a great resource it is. This Bible is the New Testament ONLY, but the Bible itself appears easily as large and the whole Bible. It is stuffed full of outstanding commentary by Dr. Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch. For any Christian who wants to know more about the meaning of the New Testament, this is the Bible for you. It is a must have for any Christian library. Even protestants would find the commentary informative as to how Catholics interpret the New Testament.

JESUS OF NAZARETH: HOLY WEEK, PART II – From the entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection by Pope Benedict XVI at AMAZON.COM

Review: Pope Benedict XVI is a significant reason as to why I am a Catholic today. I have to admit that I have to reread much of his work, because he is so incredible deep as a theologian. I have read this book once, but I am rereading it because I felt like a deer in the headlights during several chapters. I recommend all of his books, but they are not for the faint of heart. I think there are probably quite a bit more easily understood exegetical works on the life of Jesus Christ than this particular book. Still, it is a masterful work.
