Learning God's Word: A Catholic Guide to Scripture Study
Most introductions to the Bible are quite large and imposing - thick volumes with many pages of text and fine print.I have tried to write something much more brief, perhaps surprisingly so; it is meant to be like alittle "handmaid" for the reader who wants to have a succinct overview of the major themes in biblical study both past and present - whether as a goal in itself, or as a framework for further,more detailed study.I have drawn the material from documents of the Magisterium and from reputable Catholicscholarship both past and present, thereby hoping to provide the basic information andknowledge you need to appreciate the sacred texts within the living tradition in which they werewritten. May His Word always accompany you.
