Resources and Aids for the Study, Understanding, and Use of the Bible

The links below draw their information from Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, and secular sources. There are fundamental differences between these sources over the nature of the Scriptures, and hence their interpretation. All of these links are presented here because they offer some valuable contribution to the online study of the Scriptures, but one should be circumspect in the use of non-Catholic materials and methodologies. It is well worth spending time reading Vatican II and post Vatican II Church Documents on the nature and interpretation of the Scriptures, also accessible through the links below.
