Publishers Description The St. Paul Center Studies in Biblical Theology and Spirituality In this third title in the series of contemporary Catholic classics, biblical scholar and theologian Jean Corbon invites Christians into a spiritual reading of the Bible in its entirety and to explore 10 major themes of the Bible: creation, promise, pasch, exodus, covenant, kingdom, exile, return, resurrection and liturgy. Father Corbon writes, "Through a study of the chronological stages of the Old Testament, we shall try to recognize the logical and vital stages of our experience of Christ. This is not, therefore, a work of exegesis or biblical theology but rather an initiation into a spiritual reading--that is, a reading in the Spirit--of the Bible in its entirety."

Peace Is Not the Absence of Trouble May 16, 2005
Inspired by the Gospel of John (16:33) Scanlan opens with an examination of the relationship between peace and trouble. The passage looks at the two conditions not as cause and effect or sequentially ordered, he writes. Instead, Jesus said we have both peace and trouble together. "Peace is not the absence of trouble; peace is the relationship we have with Jesus Christ, which deepens while we are going through trouble." That single statement from the first chapter is rich enough to support lengthy reflection, with application to situations from the personal to the global. But Scanlan is just getting started.
The chapter on the connection between trouble and deeper intimacy with Jesus reminds us that following Christ will lead to inner or spiritual trouble and outer trouble in the form of conflict with the forces around us. The illustration he uses to bring that point home deals with his experience in the army. Additional personal examples bring to life such reflections as "We don't fear Satan and sin enough; we fear men and what they can do too much," and "The basic lie from the evil one is the same lie that the serpent whispered into the ear of Eve: God's warning doesn't really apply to you."
