Item description for Reading the Gospels With the Church: From Christmas Through Easter by Raymond Brown...
What is the best way to get interested in Bible reading? Why not start with the passages that the Church reads to us in the seasons dedicated to the great events in the life of Christ: Christmas, Lent, Holy Week, Easter? That would truly be Reading the Gospels with the Church. This book with its reflections on the Gospels of these seasons offers a wonderful entry into appreciation of the Bible. And since many mainline Churches have the same Gospel readings on Sundays, it is a book that can serve all.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reading the Gospels With the Church: From Christmas Through Easter?
Interesting and enlightening Catholic viewpoints Jan 18, 1999
Brown tells Catholic readers much they probably don't know about the early formation of the gospel messages, and his text is filled with interesting information coupled with thoughtful reflection and commentary. Brown even includes the "introduction" on how to read scripture, from the official Vatican document.
You will learn about the three stages of gospel formation, how reading any text in a literal way simply is silly, and how the Church encourages Catholics to read the gospels through the many "lenses" we now have available.
