9780814659953: Scripture (Engaging Theology-Catholic Perspectives series)

"Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." What Saint Jerome said centuries ago is surely still true today; any serious theological study must be grounded in Scripture. While there are plenty of biblical scholars today, few authors are able to introduce Scripture to students the way Dianne Bergant does. Bergant invites readers to genuinely engage Scripture, to enter the world of the text and explore some of the age-old questions that arise in every generation: What does it mean to say that the Word of God is both divine and human? Why is biblical history so important to the study of Scripture and theology? Why are there different literary forms in the Bible? Why the competing voices and apparent contradictions. In language that is clear and compelling, Bergant explores the answers to these and other questions. She surveys the world of the Bible and biblical scholarship in an introduction that is sure to spark enthusiasm and further interest. This volume in the Engaging Theology series instills solid knowledge of Scripture and, thereby, knowledge of Christ, demonstrating that "the Bible is an inexhaustible source of challenge and delight, of inspiration and guidance, and a testimony to ultimate meaning and value."

From the Inside Flap:

Drawing on the wisdom and teaching experience of highly respected theologians, the Engaging Theology series builds a firm foundation for graduate study and other ministry formation programs. Each of the six volumes?Scripture, Jesus, God, Discipleship, Anthropology, and Church?is concerned with retrieving, carefully evaluating, and constructively interpreting the Christian tradition. Comprehensive in scope and accessibly written, these volumes, used together or independently, will stimulate rich theological reflection and discussion. More importantly, the series will create and sustain the passion of the next generation of theologians and church leaders. ?Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.?

While written in a Catholic ethos, readers across the ecumenical spectrum will profit deeply from the wisdom embodied on every page.? Ralph W. Klein Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago
