The Bible. You probably have one sitting on a shelf somewhere in your home. Some find the Bible antiquated and obscure, even disturbing; others find in it an endless fountain of wisdom and guidance for their lives; and many encounter God speaking to them through its inspired words, ever ancient and ever new. This talk seeks to answer these questions:
- Why would God choose to reveal himself to us through this fascinating and often puzzling library of inspired books, and how did these books come to be?
- What are the principles the Catholic Church gives us for interpreting the Bible, and what are some easily available resources for studying the Bible from the heart of the Church?
- What are some guidelines and examples that show how to pray with the Bible and hear the living God speak to me through these ancient words?
