Spirit and Life: Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time is written by well-known and respected scholar and author Scott Hahn. Published by Emmaus Road, these nine essays provide fresh insights into important biblical themes. Topics in this volume include:
• 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 shows that Scripture is not a dead letter but rather a great, living gift from God. Indeed, it is “spirit and life” to those who will unwrap and embrace it. Spirit and Life: Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time provides the reader with a greater appreciation of the Living Word.
