The Epistles, for all their disarming simplicity do not make easy reading; even in crisp, modern translations they pose a problem for the ordinary reader, no matter how interested and concerned. The exciting findings of modern biblical research compound the problem. Scholars know more with each passing year and the knowledge gap grows wider.
This unique reader's guide is ideally suited to close that gap between the contemporary Christian and the Epistles. Written by the most distinguished Catholic scripture scholar of his day and designed to be read in conjunction with the New Testament it provides lucid and expert commentary and explanation. With a guide like John L. McKenzie and the option of setting your own pace -- the difficult suddenly becomes not only possible, but pleasurable.
