Spirit and Life: Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time
The Bible and the liturgy were made for one another. To read Scripture in the heart of the Church is to read it with Eucharistic eyes. It is here that we see the great juncture of love: written Word and Incarnate Word.
Spirit and Life: Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time provides the reader with a greater appreciation of the Living Word. In nine informative and engaging essays, Dr. Scott Hahn draws readers’ attention to central themes in Scripture, which make sense when read in the “ natural and supernatural habitat” of the liturgy.
- Scripture as God’s symphony
- Pope Benedict’s Scripture-based teaching on the person and prayer of Jesus
- The connection of Scripture, liturgy, and the Church
- The “liturgical sense” of God’s Word
- The theme of fulfillment in Matthew’s Gospel
- Church authority within a scriptural context
- A biblical approach to the “Pentecostal” phenomena
- A paradox? Christ as Majestic Judge vs. Christ as the Lamb
Hahn convincingly demonstrates that Scripture is not a dead letter, but rather a great, living gift from God.
