Founder of Modern Catholic BibleThe Story of Father Marie-Joseph Lagrange: Founder of Modern Catholic Bible Study
by Benedict Viviano, OP, Translator

Fr. Lagrange, taking into account new knowledge acquired from historical, linguistic, archeological, and other resources, brought a whole new light to the study of the Bible, and struggled to have the historical/critical interpretation accepted by the Catholic Church. However, this being the era of the Modernist crisis, he was criticized and harassed by conservative elements in the church. Steadfastly loyal to the faith and the church, Fr. Lagrange pursued his studies very much attached to the Church, while advancing the state of biblical studies. This work gives readers--whether casual perusers of the Bible or scholars--access to the passionate and often sorrowful journey of this little known but remarkable man.

It addresses major themes: the kingdom of God, revelation, the Sabbath, spirituality, ecclesiology, and the birth of Easter faith. It also includes aspects of Matthew’s broader context: Qumran literature, the letters to the Galatians and of James, and John’s reception of Matthew.
