Verbum Domini

Austen Ivereigh has just drawn our attention at "In All Things" to the publication of Verbum Domini. He writes, "the post-synodal apostolic exhortation Verbum Domini is the most important Catholic church document on Scripture since the Second Vatican Council's groundbreaking Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, known as Dei Verbum, in 1965." What he does not note is that this document is long, very long, compared to the compact Dei Verbum. It is showing up on my computer as 208 pages. Readers of this blog, the task is clear, let the reading begin. I hope to start posting on this document in the near future (without mention of gold or red pens). Please join me in this endeavor!
