Dear Catholic.com visitor: Summer is here, and you may be thinking about a well-deserved vacation, family get-togethers, BBQs with neighborhood friends. More than likely, making a donation to Catholic Answers is not on your radar right now. But this is exactly the time we most need your help. The “summer slowdown” in donations is upon us, but the work of spreading the gospel and explaining and defending the Faith never takes a break. Your gift today will change lives and save souls for Christ this summer! The reward is eternal. Thank you and God bless.

Where can I find what the Catholic Church officially teaches about the Bible and Tradition?

Question:

Where can I find what the Catholic Church officially teaches about the Bible and Tradition?

Answer:

There are a number of places you can go. First, look at Vatican II’s Dei Verbum, the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation. You can find this document in the front of many Catholic translations of the Bible. You will also want to read Pius XII’s encyclical Divino Afflante Spiritu. Examine also the Council of Trent’s Decree Concerning the Canonical Scriptures.
