A Catholic Introduction to the Bible: The Old Testament (11/30/17)

Now this looks very promising.  (It also is very much needed.)

A Catholic Introduction to the Bible: Old Testament
John Bergsma and Brant Pitre

Just what Catholic colleges and seminaries have longed for! A solid, up-to-date overview of contemporary scholarship's understanding of the language, literature, history, and culture of the ancient Hebrews; how the Old Testament is seen in the light of the New; and how each book is cited in the modern 3-year lectionary. 725 pages, hardcover. Ignatius.

Thanks, Timothy. I now know what I'll be reading in December!

Since it's not slated to come out to the first or second quarter of 2018, I don't think we'll be able to read this in December, but I suspect it will be worth the wait. I just ordered my copy and will be looking forward to the NT sequel. This will be an excellent resource for preaching and Bible study, much less for personal use.
