Comment on Reflecting on Mark for the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time by shane mcintyre http://www.catholiccommentaryonsacredscripture.com/2015/09/17/reflecting-on-mark-for-the-twenty-fifth-sunday-in-ordinary-time/#comment-2691 Mon, 28 Sep 2015 21:21:36 +0000 http://www.catholiccommentaryonsacredscripture.com/?p=1415#comment-2691 Hello! I just wanted to drop a line and say I have enjoyed reading your books. I just finished reading the Revelation book last week. I want to say thank you for finally giving me some general sense of understanding of what Revelation is about.

Here is my interpretation after reading your book: John’s visions try to explain in terms of human understanding what essentially is not meant to be understood (God’s ways). God, however, is not only omnipotent, but also a gentleman, and He has given us Revelation to have some vague sense of what is going on with His ways and plans.

The other thing that stood out to me about Revelation is that it seems to serve as a “bottom line” in the Bible. If the Books of the Bible were a costly restaurant receipt (the Gospels being the main course), the total price after tax and tip = the Book of Revelation, particularly Chapter 22, the bottom line.

Lastly, I am a huge fan of the Book of Proverbs. Personally, I think this book of Bible is being overlooked by the Church. A lot of the dumb things I did when I was younger, “unwise decisions”, could probably have been prevented had I been trained in Proverbs while growing up. I also think the 5th joyful mystery, Finding of Jesus in the Temple, has a direct correlation with the Book of Proverbs. Young Jesus, in my opinion, wasn’t just filled with wisdom because he is Divine, but also because he studied the Proverbs and applied them during all those years before his ministry began. Personally, I think that is precisely what that mystery is about (wisdom).

With that said I hope that I can encourage a small team of your very talented authors to write a COMPLETE commentary book on Proverbs. I have the Ignatius book by Hahn and Mitch, which is good, but about 25% of the proverbs are left blank without commentary or cross references. Unless you own Verbum, there’s nothing out there Catholic that I know of that gives comprehensive commentary on Proverbs, 31 chapter, 915 verses total. One chapter of study for each day of the month. I don’t think that is a coincidence!

In Christ,

Shane McIntyre

Comment on Reflecting on Mark for the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time by Arthur Peterson http://www.catholiccommentaryonsacredscripture.com/2015/07/09/reflecting-on-mark-for-the-fifteenth-sunday-in-ordinary-time/#comment-2556 Thu, 16 Jul 2015 17:18:08 +0000 http://www.catholiccommentaryonsacredscripture.com/?p=1385#comment-2556 Thank you!
After studying your – The Gospel of Mark – I have read several additional books from the CCSS series. Your style, knowledge, and tallent for making the Bible come alive – has inspired me to bring the Gospel and the Catchism to my adult Bible classes with greater zeal and enthusiasm and confidence.
Thank you,
God bless,

Wonder if anyone has ever read the Messages of True Life In God? Well worth a read.

Theg would have thoughg this revolting; with thd Holy Spirit giving them the GRACE to undedstand this concept wouldn’t happen fully until Pentackst. Maybe after the Rusurrection.
