The Vatican II's Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation is universally acclaimed as one of the council's most important documents. Published in 1965 after a long and circuitous route throughout all four years of the council, Dei Verbum sets forth the Catholic Church's official teaching about divine revelation and the complex interrelationship between Scripture and Tradition. With the approach of the fiftieth anniversary of the constitution, this book-intended for general audiences-summarizes the history and principal teaching of this groundbreaking document. Accompanying the text of The Word of God at Vatican II is a paragraph-by-paragraph commentary and an exploration of the impact the constitution has had in the church's life. Readers will be amazed at how influential Dei Verbum continues to be, even today.

"Vatican Council II's Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation was a life-changer for the twentieth-century church. In this splendid little volume, The Word of God at Vatican II: Exploring Dei Verbum, Fr. Ron Witherup tells us how it came about, what it said, and some of what happened as a result. It's a must-read for every religious educator in the English-speaking world." Raymond F. Collins Department of Religious Studies Brown University "Ron Witherup's book on Dei Verbum, Vatican II's dogmatic constitution on divine revelation, is a gem. He provides, in effect, a clear and accessible 'exegesis' of a document whose import and impact continue fifty years later. In addition, Fr. Witherup sets Dei Verbum in its historical context and offers practical suggestions for its ongoing appropriation. I highly recommend this book, especially for bible study groups and parish education classes." Thomas D. Stegman, SJ Associate Professor of New Testament Boston College School of Theology & Ministry "Vatican II's declaration Dei Verbum has proven to one of the most important and lasting actions of the Council, injecting new life and vigor into the biblical renewal of the Catholic Church. Ronald Witherup, SS, is, as he notes, a 'product' of this renewal-becoming a noted Catholic voice in the interpretation of the Scriptures. His dedication and skill are on display here as he provides an in-depth but very accessible commentary on the Council's statement and lays out its meaning for the life of the Church today." Donald Senior, CP, President Emeritus and Professor of New Testament at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago "In order to deepen both our relationship to Scripture, and to God, we must understand what we read and pray with. As a writer and speaker, I often refer to Dei Verbum, frequently urging others to study this essential document as a way of deepening their understanding of Sacred Scripture. In this treasure of a book, Ronald Witherup, SS, offers those who are familiar with Dei Verbum, as well as those who are just beginning, new and important insights into the Word of God." Fran Rossi Szpylczyn is a Catholic writer, and lay minister in Albany, NY. Her work can be accessed at There Will Be Bread "This book is a 'must' for understanding the refined position of the Catholic church on sacred Scripture as proclaimed by Vatican II. Authored by a foremost biblical scholar, this book presents keen insights into the history of debates and discussions leading to the final approved text. Fr. Witherup's commentary on each chapter of Dei Verbum offers an outstanding analysis of Divine Revelation, the relationship between Scripture and tradition, the transmission of Revelation and related questions. With its helpful charts and glossary, this book is a welcomed resource that I cannot praise enough." Most Revered Donald W. Trautman Bishop Emeritus of Erie "A book for all seasons-but especially today! As our commitment to hearing and living the Word of God deepens and as we continue to comprehend the treasure, ramifications and challenges of the Second Vatican Council, Fr. Witherup takes us on a journey of understanding and appreciation of Scripture and one of the Council's foundational documents, the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, a journey that is unequalled. A survey of the history, the meaning and implications of Dei Verbum, as well as practical suggestions for the future are succinctly summarized with comprehensive clarity and fervent fidelity. This book is ideal for individual and group reflection and study, and then needs to be kept on a near-by bookshelf for continual reference." Janet Schaeffler, OP Author, Retreat and Adult Faith Formation Facilitator "Ronald Witherup's treatment of the great Constitution on Divine Revela
