Item description for Reading the Bible As God's Own Story: A Catholic Approach for Bringing Scripture to Life by William S. Kurz...
Overview How should Catholics read the Bible? Beyond the history and literature of the Bible, Catholics need to discover God's own story-and his way of looking at the world. Noted Scripture scholar William Kurz draws from the writings of two church fathers, Sts. Irenaeus and Athanasius, to show how we can read the Bible as the story of God-with the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ as its climax. Like a good mystery novel, when we know how the story ends, we can read it again from the beginning in order to search for important clues that will help us see God's plan for the world and how we fit into that plan. Kurz examines passages from both the Old and New Testament to demonstrate that, as we approach the Bible in faith, we bring new life and meaning to Scripture.
