Msgr. Steven P. Rohlfs, STD Rector, Mount St. Mary's Seminary

Dr. Steven Smith’s new book, The Word of the Lord, is a perfect companion for those who wish to deepen their knowledge of Sacred Scripture during the Year of Faith proclaimed by Pope Benedict XVI … I have no doubt that a careful reading of this book will change the way you read Sacred Scripture in the future.

Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. , Archbishop of Chicago

The Word of the Lord presents the principles of Catholic Biblical exegesis drawn from Church documents. … This is a helpful book at a time when the relations between Scripture and Tradition and Scripture and Divine Revelation are background for many other conversations in the Church today.

Dr. Scott Hahn

As you read this book, you will join with me in saying, “Thanks be to God” ... We need good teachers, like Dr. Steven Smith ... a veteran teacher of Sacred Scripture at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, one of the oldest and most respected houses of formation in the United States. From years of experience in the classroom and parish, Dr. Smith is able to communicate clearly for a wide range of readers … No matter what your background, here you will find many practical examples and memorable illustrations to help digest each lesson.

Dr. Dianne Traflet, Associate Dean and Asst. Professor, Pastoral Theology, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, Seton Hall University

With numerous references to doctrinal texts, spiritual classics, and papal documents, the book is eminently scholarly, but consistently read-able, gently helping the reader move from the pages of this book to the pages of Holy Scripture. As a result of Dr. Smith’s book, I believe there will be many Bibles that will be dusted off, read, and studied …Dr. Smith has fed us well.
