Scott Hahn’s Catholic Bible Dictionary Chosen at St. John Vianney Seminary

catholic bible dictionary

The Catholic Bible Dictionary is an unparalleled reference source of information, insight, and guidance for Catholics, students, as well as anyone interested in enriching their understanding of Sacred Scripture.

Catholic Bible Dictionary answers the urgent need for a generally accessible resource deeply rooted in the Catholic tradition. It will be of great help to Catholics in broadening and deepening the familiarity with the Bible they already possess through the regular readings in the liturgy. Particularly helpful are the clear overviews of each book of the Bible that will allow readers to place the selections they hear at mass in their proper context.”
—Dr. Michael Waldstein, Max Seckler Professor of Theology at Ave Maria University and translator of Pope John Paul II’s Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body

St. John Vianney Seminary’s Catholic Bible School has selected Scott Hahn’s Catholic Bible Dictionary for its fall 2009 and spring 2010 Bible Studies course.
