Acknowledgement

Fr. Ronald Cox C.M. was a member of the Congregation of the Mission –
otherwise known as the Vincentian Fathers. This Order has a long and
distinguished history of educating young people in schools, universities
and seminaries among other works of charity.

His three books: “The Gospel Story“, “Waiting For Christ,” and
It Is Paul Who Writes” provide the reader with scholarly yet
uncomplicated commentaries or explanations side by side with the
Biblical texts. We are very grateful to the trustees of the Vincentian Fathers
who administer the estate of the Late Fr. Cox for permission to use
these three books.
