A thorough revision of A Catholic Commentary on Holy Scripture (New York, Nelson, 1953). There is a commentary for each book of the Bible as well as 30 other articles on specific topics. Each article and commentary contains bibliographical notes. This work is largely the product of British Catholic scholars (although there are some American contributors), whereas the Jerome Biblical Commentary (B117) is primarily an American work. "The varying treatment of topics or of the interpretation of individual books found in these two great achievements will enrich our common Catholic understanding of the Bible" (America, CXXIII [November 21, 1970] , p. 437). A very detailed index adds to the reference value of this work.
