- How was the Bible written?
- Why is it important for Catholics?
- How do I begin to read the Bible?
The Bible is a great treasure of the Christian world, and source of revelation of God's word. As noted in the Introduction, "Since the Second Vatican Council, there has been a more intentional focus on Scripture in the liturgy and encouragement from Church leaders that has led many Catholics to dust off the family Bible, looking for nourishment for the spiritual life.
Drawing on the trusted and popular Catholic Update newsletter, the Catholic Update Guide to the Bible provides a simple, down-to-earth explanation of the Bible, and how it can impact the faith life of Catholics. You will begin to view the Bible as a library and learn a practical approach to discovering its stories and mining its wisdom.
