Catholics: What to tell "Bible Christians" about the Bible

Most Catholics know that Protestant "private interpretation" of Scripture leads to grave errors. But how many know exactly what those errors are—or what the Church really does teach about the Bible?

This smoothly written treatment of Catholic "Bible basics" by a renowned Scripture scholar shows Catholics how-and how not-to read and interpret the Word of God, which, after all, He entrusted to His Church. It also shows how to refute the errors of both Protestants and secular Bible critics. Some highlights:

  • Bible "difficulties" resolved-e.g., Jonah and the whale; Joshua and the sun; genealogies; apparent discrepancies
  • Refuted: challenges to the authority and reliability of the Gospels
  • Basic principles of Scripture interpretation, as taught by the popes, Church Fathers, and councils
  • False approaches to Scripture study the church condemns
  • Key terms explained: e.g., revelation, inspiration, inerrancy
  • Dangers of taking certain parts of the Bible literally-or not literally enough. The Catholic "middle way"
  • Different rules for looking at the Old and New Testaments. The special principle that unites them. Solving the diffi culties of interpretation (skillfully exploited today by Catholic modernists)
  • How God is understood to be the true "Author" of Scripture, yet used human authors to record His revelation
  • Science and Scripture: Church guidelines for when they conflict
  • How Biblical truth sometimes differs from historical fact, according to Church doctrine
  • Can historical research aid our understanding of Scripture? Yes, says the Church-but beware these pitfalls
  • Why Protestants invoke St. Paul as their chief scriptural ally. His true character as the "apostle of unity"-with Rome
  • St. John's Gospel: "stamping ground of liberalism rampant." The overwhelming case for its reliability and historicity
  • The false assumptions on which most modern Bible "criticism" is based—coloring all modernists' conclusions
  • Why the Christ "of history" and "of the Gospels" are the same
  • Where and how the New Testament merely modifi es the Old. Where it reveals things entirely new
  • Did Moses actually write the words of the Pentateuch? Did Solomon write the Book of Wisdom? The Church's response to authorship questions like these
  • Two different ways Biblical authors were "inspired" by God
  • Chapter and verse: the Old Testament foreshadows the New
  • Explanations for apparent discrepancies among the Gospel accounts of Our Lord's words and life
  • The simplest, surest proof that Scripture is inspired by God
  • The biggest hole in the Protestant understanding of Scripture

Cuthbert Lacey, the Jesuit whose research was crucial to the Westminster Version of the Bible, was widely praised for this 1944 guide:

"One of the most valuable and effective popular handbooks on the introduction to Sacred Scripture."
-American Ecclesiastical Record

"Deserves high praise as a usual summary of, and valuable commentary on, biblical questions of major importance, presented in a very readable manner."
-Irish Ecclesiastical Record
