On 27th January 2022, T&T Clark publishes The Jerome Biblical Commentary for the Twenty-First Century. This landmark text in Catholic biblical scholarship has, since its original publication in 1968, been the first port of call for priests, preachers, students, and scholars, as well as general readers.

Now with a foreword by Pope Francis, this third edition is essential reading for those with an existing copy on their shelf, as well as a new generation of readers looking to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Bible.

The entire content of the commentary has been revised to bring it up-to-date with the very latest scholarship, by the leading Catholic scholars of our day. The contributors draw on a variety of both traditional and contemporary approaches and methods, and the “General Articles” section has been updated with articles on new approaches to the study of the Bible and on the interpretation of the Bible in diverse and pastoral contexts.

Dominic Mattos, Senior Publisher at T&T Clark, comments:
“The Jerome Biblical Commentary is the gold-standard in Catholic commentary on the Scriptures in English. To have been able to have commissioned and overseen this magnificent third edition is a great privilege. Bringing together an international and truly diverse team of the best Catholic biblical scholars, guided by a team of general editors whose diligence, expertise, and collegiality are second to none, has made the development process truly enriching. The result is a volume that will encourage readers to grow in their love for and understanding of the Scriptures.”
