New Papal Document On Scripture Coming After Easter

Pope Benedict XVI will be releasing a new document, an Apostolic Exhortation, on Scripture. The document is a follow-up to the recent Synod on Scripture. For those unfamiliar with how these sort of things work, my friend Mark Giszczak over at the blog www.CatholicBibleStudent.com wrote on the expectation of the document a while back, speculating about whether or not the Pope would also release an encyclical, the most authoritative type of papal writing.

Here's more information on the new document from Rome Reports:

One more reason to hope Easter gets here quick!

I read a report that Eterovic has a book out now, based on the synod, dealing only with homiletics. But I can't find any traces of it it English. Maybe you saw the "8 minute homily" headlines? Do you know anything about this book, and/or when we might see it in English?

thanks!
