Are Catholics biblical illiterates?
So goes the frequent question, proving that myths die hard. But Catholics ought to be able to answer the charge made by many non-Catholics in this regard. This book is a response to Fundamentalist critics and an explanation of the Catholic biblical tradition.
The Catholic Church and the Bible is a significant scriptural study guide, published from a Catholic perspective and particularly keyed to the new Catechism of the Catholic Church. The well-planned, straight forward text is clearly outlined to make information easy to find and understand. Main topics include:
This work should be heartily welcomed by both clergy and laity, for Father Stravinskas sheds new light on Catholic Bible study by writing with candor, clarity and scriptural backing. This is ideal for use in Catholic high schools and in parish RCIA programs.
Fr. Peter M. J. Stravinskas is the well-known editor of the Catholic Answer magazine, is a contributing editor to the National Catholic Register, and has written over 500 articles for numerous Catholic publications. He has also authored or edited eighteen other books and has been a Professor of Theology and of Education at St. John's University and Seton Hall.
