Winner of a third-place award in Spanish books from the Association of Catholic Publishers.
La Biblia: Introducción a la Sagrada Escritura offers Hispanic Catholics a foundation for understanding the Bible and praying with it in harmony with the traditions of the Church. By approaching the Bible as loving communication--as encouraged in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and in recent statements by Popes Benedict XVI and Francis--the book's three-part structure helps us understand how the Word of God has passed through three great stages in salvation history:
In La Biblia, you will learn the difference between a Catholic approach and a literalist or fundamentalist approach to reading and understanding the Bible. You will come away with the realization that the scriptures have been shared and interpreted by the Church since the beginning, helping us to understand our faith as we strive to live it today. This concise book will help you appreciate that scripture is, and always has been, present in the Church and that the Bible belongs to the whole Church. It is a living reality that resonates with ordinary people today as it did twenty centuries ago.
