    Paul: A New Covenant Jew – Rethinking Pauline Theology by Brant Pitre, Michael P. Barber, and John A. Kincaid is the latest contribution to Pauline scholarship by three respected Scripture scholars. The authors undertake an examination of Paul in the context of first-century Judaism, inter-religious dialogue, and the practice of the Catholic Faith, offering fresh perspectives on a central biblical figure. 
    November is the month dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
