God speaks to us in the Bible so we can grow in holiness. With every reading, new understandings of our life with God emerge, and we will be better inspired to enjoy God's many gifts for us. Some texts in the Bible evolved over decades; others did so over centuries. In fact, at least forty authors probably wrote the Bible over fifteen hundred years, and the texts aren't always easily understood.
This collection of homilies by Fr. Kevin E. Mackin, OFM, features drama, wisdom, and humor. They illuminate Advent and Christmas, Lent and Easter, and "ordinary time"; and they prompt the reader to contemplate and celebrate God's gifts.
