Item description for Unlocking the Treasures of the Bible: A Practical Guide by James Philipps...
Overview What do you look for when you read the Bible? History, inspiration, spiritual direction, wisdom? Have you experienced frustration in trying to interpret the biblical writings? To unlock and enjoy all that the Bible has to offer, we need a key-four keys, actually-says author Jim Philipps. These keys, or principles, enable us to have a more personal relationship with God's Word. They can open up new vistas in our appreciation of and insights into God's loving, dynamic message. Unlocking The Treasure Of The Bible begins with an explanation of these "keys": perceiving the Bible as a library, not just one book; understanding what "inspiration" means; reading the texts of the Bible in context; and gaining an insight into how the books of the Bible developed. The rest of the book helps readers use those keys to explore some of the central passages in Scripture. All of the material is based on the Catholic understanding of the Bible as outlined in the Vatican II document Dei Verbum and further developed by the Pontifical Biblical Commission. Make this journey of discovery with your Bible in hand. Open and enter the gates, so you can fall in love with God's Word all over again.
