The Catholic Church in the United States has been growing partly due to Hispanics or Latinos immigrating from Latin America - with the largest portion from Mexico.
The first edition of this dictionary was published in 1998 entitled Historical Handbook of Major Biblical Interpreters. This new edition has been revised and expanded to include two-hundred thirty major Christian interpreters of the Bible presented by a multi-national and inter-denominational group of biblical scholars.
This book tells the story of black Catholics in Natchez, Mississippi during the days of the Jim Crow laws. Danny Duncan Collum and his assistants interviewed several African Americans about life in Natchez during those days before segregation ended. At that time, blacks could not use the same bathrooms, water fountains, restaurants, seating on buses, or other places like whites. For younger Americans this seems like something from another planet. It was not until the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s that segregation was ended although many can say that it has not been completed yet.
In early May 2007, the Vatican’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints met and recommended to Pope Benedict XVI that he should declare Pope Pius XII “venerable”, a step in the canonization process.

Mother Angelica is one of the most known Catholic religious women in the United States. Her television network, EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network), is the best known Catholic network in the United States and beyond. She is very earthy and this comes through in this book which is a collection of sayings and quotes from her many years of ministry to God’s people.
The words to describe this book are “wow” and “awe inspiring”. This deep, academic book is the first in a series of volumes that the Pope is planning to publish. General readers may have a difficult time with it, but will be able to appreciate the book with additional reflection and prayer.
