The Vision of the Beloved Disciple
Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John

Beloved Disciple

Originally published by Alba House
$9.95 plus $2 postage

Imagine being able to sit at the feet of the Beloved Disciple and to learn from him all that he had come to understand about the mystery of Jesus, having lived so closely with the Lord during his life and having pondered the wonder of it all for many years after. Biblical scholars tell us that the Gospels are individual portraits of Jesus, each one portrayed from a unique vantage point. John’s is an exalted view of Jesus revealing fascinating facets of his life and ministry very gradually, each element cryptically containing and point to the central mystery of the passion, death, resurrection of the Lord and his giving of the Holy Spirit. In this remarkable work, Farther Montague revisits many of the most familiar passages from the Gospel of John and with rare and surprising insights helps us to see in depth much of what is hidden under the surface of these popular texts. He has managed to capture six facets of John’s special vision; his own mysterious identity, the experience of meeting Jesus, Jesus’ gift of the Holy spirit, communion, the gift of Mary and the writer’s approach to evangelization in a way that helps the reader experience the impact of John’s unique vision of Jesus.

The Holy Spirit
The Growth of a Biblical Tradition

Holy Spirit

Wipf and Stock Publishers, Eugene, Oregon
$24.05 plus $3 postage
(if ordered from Fr. Montague)

This book is a commentary on all the major biblical texts dealing with the Spirit, from Genesis to Revelation. It is an invaluable reference book for students, teachers, minister, Bible study groups, or anyone interested in the person and work of the Holy Spirit. It perhaps found its widest use during the charismatic renewal among both Protestants and Catholics, and has remained a classic ever since.

Fr. George has not only provided a rich and thoughtful commentary on individual passages, but he has, by the nature of this work, offered a multifaceted overview of the growth of the biblical doctrine on the spirit covering many centuries. From the time of the Yawist, when the Spirit was pictured as God’s “breath of life,” to the personalized understanding of the Spirit in the Fourth Gospel, the biblical doctrine of the spirit has evidenced steady development.

Mark: A Popular commentary on the Earliest Gospel
Good News for Hard Times

Mark

$14.95 plus $3 postage
Available only from Fr. Montague

Fr. Montague has written this commentary for the contemporary reader to understand and apply the faith-building message of Mark's Gospel. It presents the best of scholarship and interpretation in an informative, non-technical style for which Father Montague is so well known. He presents Mark's gospel as "good news for hard times." It was good news and encouragement for first-century Christians suffering persecution under the Roman Empire. It is good news for Christian in the uncertain times in which we live. Fr. Montague highlights how each passage of the gospel contains a message for us today; hence its usefulness for bible study and homily preparation.

This book has been used so extensively that, after a first edition by Servant Publications, Franciscan University Press published it in a second edition. And now, in response to repeated requests, Father Montague has undertaken this third printing. The book contains the full text of the Gospel of Mark in the Revised Standard Version.

Fr. Montague combines the expertise of strenuous scholarship and the long hours of silent prayer and the good common sense of contemporary pastoral needs in this excellent commentary on the earliest gospel.
--Carroll Stuhlmueller, Editor, The Bible Today
