Dr. Scott Hahn -- (3 Talk Set)
On three remarkable CDs, Dr. Scott Hahn relates that as trusting children of God and of our Mother, the Church, Catholics read the Bible within a community that is larger than the local Bible-study group, parish or diocese. As you listen, you'll begin to experience how the authentic Catholic "Bible study group" is the Communion of Saints, the voices of Catholic Tradition, the great cloud of witnesses from all of history. Learn how your most important guide to understanding the Bible is the Holy Spirit, working through the Church's Magisterium.
Perhaps most importantly, you'll discover that "to read the Bible from the heart of the Church" means to read the Bible in its natural (and supernatural!) habitat. In other words, to read the Bible in light of the liturgy. You'll be inspired and enlightened as Dr. Hahn relates how the scriptural texts themselves presume the context of the Mass. You'll come to see how the apostles and evangelists seem to be writing with liturgical proclamation in mind. And how if you read the Bible as they wrote it, you'll be reading it from the heart of the Church which is Eucharistic. It is the very heart of Jesus. In this powerful and practical presentation, you'll experience the heart-to-heart encounter that Jesus' disciples experienced on that first Easter night, when they knew Him in the breaking of the bread: "Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked to us...while He opened to us the Scriptures?" (cf. Luke 24:13-37)
