The Bible was described at Vatican II as "the support and energy of the Church," "the pure and everlasting source of spiritual life," and "the food of the soul." Many Catholics, however, limit their interaction with Scripture to what they hear at Mass. Celebrated philosopher Peter Kreeft urges the faithful—clergy and laity alike—to a heart-to-heart connection with Christ the Word via the Word of the Scriptures in Food for the Soul, a captivating three-part series.
Throughout the three-year lectionary cycle, Kreeft uses his trademark blend of wit and wisdom to bring the Mass readings to life, challenging readers to plant their souls in the rich soil of Scripture and sharpen their minds with the Sword of the Spirit. Food for the Soul is a gift to the whole Church from one of today's best Christian authors, whether you are a layman searching for extra insight on the readings at Mass or a priest or deacon looking for inspiration for a homily.
