Letter & Spirit, vol. 8: Promise and Fulfillment: The Relationship between the Old and New Testaments



Letter & Spirit is a journal of Catholic biblical theology that seeks to foster a deeper conversation on Sacred Scripture. It aims to address the many questions surrounding the Bible and Tradition, including:

  • Where does it come from?
  • How should you read it?
  • What claim should it make in your life, on the teaching and practice of the Church, or on the world you live in?

We believe that what God has joined in giving us the Bible—the Word incarnate and the Word inspired; divine speech and human language; God’s call and His people’s response in the Church’s Liturgy and Tradition—cannot be separated. From the words of creation (“Let there be. . .”) to the words that consecrated His New Covenant (“This is My Body. . .”), God’s Word in Scripture is always living and active.

Volume 8 is the 2012–2013 issue, focusing on Old and New Testament biblical theology. Expand your understanding of Scripture in the Catholic perspective with the latest Letter & Spirit today.

The Logos Bible Software edition of Letter & Spirit, Volume 8: Promise and Fulfillment: The Relationship between the Old and New Testaments is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of the Catholic faith. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and original-language texts, while important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
