‘The Bible,’ says Pope Francis, ‘is not a collection of books for the benefit of a privileged few. It belongs to those called to hear its message and to recognise themselves in its words.’
The How the Bible Can Help Us Understand guides are designed to help us explore these words together today.
Each book asks what the Bible has to say about an important aspect of our lives, and can be read either privately or as part of a small study group. The authors offer thoughts and questions for reflection, prayers, and suggestions for considering a topic more deeply.
