This is a general bibliography of titles related to the Catholic faith, to Judaism, and to the relationship between Israel and the Church.

The primary, most recommended and ultimate source of divine revelation is of course the Bible, closely followed by the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the authoritative interpretation of Sacred Scripture as preserved in the Tradition of the Church under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
