God's Echo: Exploring Scripture with Midrash - by Sandy Eisenberg Sasso - Paraclete Press Inc. God's Echo: Exploring the Scriptures with Midrash
by Sandy Eisenberg Sasso
The Rabbis of old believed that the Torah was divinely revealed and therefore contained eternal, perfect truths and hidden meaning that required ongoing elucidation. The meaning of a text was more complicated that simply reading it. And meaning changed over time. This understanding of how the Bible mystically relates to all of life is the fertile ground from which midrash emerged.

"The rabbis believed that nothing in the Bible, not the choice of words or their spellings, not the order of events or the relationship of one text to another, was haphazard or inconsequential. Everything was there with purpose. They deemed it their reponsibility to discover connections and harmony where on the surface none appeared to exist. A text may contain multiple meanings. Time is of no consequence. They felt free to read back into old stories what happened in future eras, and to see in the early stories of Genesis a foreshadowing of future events."

In this engaging book, Rabbi Sasso explores how midrash originated, how it is still used today, and offers new translations and interpretations of more than twenty essential midrash texts. (Item #87598) $19.95

   
Apocalyopse Explained
by H. M. Feret, OP

"Fr. Feret has taken an enigmatic book of the Bible and explained it briefly, clearly and in a thoroughly scholarly fashion." -- Worship

St. John's Apocalypse, better known as the Book of Revelation, is perhaps the most profound, fascinating and frequently misinterpreted book in the Bible. All manner of heretics, pseudo-prophets and cultists have found in its mysterious symbols and prophecies the basis for their false teachings. Even the soberest Protestant studies -- which are numerous -- are infected by anti-Catholic errors and vain speculation.

Unfortunately, most Catholic studies of the Apocalypse have been aimed at specialists. An exception was this popular treatment by the eminent French theologian H.M. Feret, written in response to rising apocalyptic expectations during World War II, and later widely translated. Now back in print in its English version, it remains the definitive study for ordinary Catholics -- equally useful for laymen, clergy, seminarians, and homeschoolers studying Scripture with their children. Highlights and major themes:

  • Common misinterpretations of apocalyptic symbols and prophecies -- and why they're wrong (Fr. Feret cites traditional Church teaching, great theologians, and Scripture itself)
  • The important historical events that prompted St. John to write the Apocalypse (crucial to correct interpretation)
  • Jesus in the Apocalypse: quite different from -- and an important complement to -- his image in the Gospels
  • Important ways the Apocalypse modifies and enriches doctrines found elsewhere in the New Testament. How it supports Catholic dogmas denied by Protestants
  • The Apocalypse as true prophesy. One major prediction that has already come to pass
  • Major historical eras prophesied in the Apocalypse. Which one is ours?
  • The Christian view of history according to St. John. The role of the Church
  • How Protestants distort St. John's teachings about the Church, its divine mission, and its final destiny
  • The activity of Satan in history. His two chief weapons against the Church
  • The heavenly Jerusalem, and the End of Time
  • The true meaning of the Millennium
  • How St. John pictures Christ's spiritual kingdom, triumphant over the nations, as the fulfillment of Old Testament prophesy
  • How must the faithful cooperate with Christ in His victory over Satan? How St. John assures us that Christ's cause will triumph
