Cur Deus Verba: Why the Word Became Words

Jeremy Holmes Ignatius Press 2021 9781621644217 "Philosophically sophisticated, deceptively simple in the way it is written, Cur Deus Verba is a beautifully clear account of the place of Scripture in the totality of Christian doctrine and life.” —Aidan Nichols, O.P., Author, Balthasar for Thomists and Rome and the Eastern Churches “A synthesis of historical methodology and theological hermeneutics is necessary to overcome the aridity of the endless search for the ‘historical Jesus’ severed from the memory of the Church. This work is an attempt to make the implicit elements explicit in a manner faithful to the memoria ecclesiae and to do so under the guidance of the great Doctors of the Church.” —Tracey Rowland, Saint John Paul II Chair of Theology, University of Notre Dame (Australia) “How welcome to find a sound treatment of the spiritual senses of Scripture. I hope that this textbook finds a place on the bibliographies of Scripture courses everywhere.” —Romanus Cessario, O.P., Adam Cardinal Maida Professor of Theology, Ave Maria University “Holmes has crafted a masterful theological introduction to the purpose, nature, suitability, and historicity of Sacred Scripture. Step by step, he leads us to appreciate, celebrate, and finally rejoice that God has given us his Word in this particular scriptural form." —Matthew Levering, James N. Jr. and Mary D. Perry Chair of Theology, Mundelein Seminary “Only the wise teacher can write a book on a difficult subject that will be of real interest to both the novice and the expert. Jeremy Holmes has written such a book. His style is engaging, even conversational, with touches of gentle humor, but never at the expense of clarity or the reverence due the subject matter.” —Gregory Vall, Notre Dame Seminary, New Orleans “Dr. Holmes offers the Church a renewed approach to reading Scripture drawn from her own rich traditions and contemporary insights into community, tradition, psychology, history, and much more. His clarity of presentation, congenial style, apt examples, fruitful quotations, and attention to the needs of his readers make it a work that should be profitable for all the orders of the Church, from the learned layman to the Scripture scholar.” —Andrew T. Seeley, Thomas Aquinas College, Santa Paula, California
