Bibliography and References 

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

If you would like to suggest any other relevant titles, please contact us or post your suggestions on our forum .

The bibliography includes the main sources that were used to build the online course. This list is far from comprehensive or complete; it merely represents a list of most authoritative and important documents, along with some personal favorites that helped shape our website.

See also the links page for more online resources.

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.
