Item description for Introduction to the Bible: A Catholic Guide to Studying Scripture by Stephen J. Binz...

Overview
Catholics are often reluctant to begin reading the Bible, this for various reasons. Perhaps we hang on to the notion that the Bible is a book meant for display, for recording the dates of family members' births, baptisms, marriages, and deaths. Or perhaps we once attempted to read the Bible and discovered there a culture entirely different from ours-and came to the conclusion that the Bible had nothing relevant to say to us in this place and time. Attentive to these and the many other reasons Catholics might give for not reading Scripture, Stephen Binz offers practical explanations that will make the Bible less foreign and more familiar. Introduction to the Bible allows readers to discover how the Bible came to be, how to choose a Bible translation, how to interpret the Bible within Catholic tradition, and how to benefit the most from Bible study. Readers will find practical explanations that will make the Bible less foreign and more familiar.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to the Bible: A Catholic Guide to Studying Scripture?

Highly recommended for Catholics new to the enlightening labor of love that is Biblical and scriptural study.  Sep 2, 2007
Catholic biblical scholar, speaker, and counselor Stephen J. Binz presents Introduction to the Bible: A Catholic Guide to Studying Scripture. A brief yet solid primer covering how the Bible came to be, how to choose a Bible translation, how to interpret the Bible in accordance with the Catholic tradition, and how to grasp the most benefit from Bible study. "Whether discerning what the text meant or what it means, the constant factor in all the meaning discovered in Scripture is the community of faith. It is the community of faith from which the text was formed, it is the community of faith that accepted the text into its Sacred Scriptures, and it is the community of faith that continues to receive the text and be formed by it today. Biblical meaning is found in the way the church comes to understand the Bible more and more fully in its life, liturgy, and theology." Highly recommended for Catholics new to the enlightening labor of love that is Biblical and scriptural study.
