Item Description...
Overview
Do Catholics really read the Bible? If so, how do they read it and is there anything unique about their approach? What role does the Bible play in Catholic life, teaching, and culture? As a leading Scripture scholar who also teaches students and preaches to everyday people, Fr. Daniel Harrington, S.J., has made it his life's mission to answer these and many related questions about the Bible and its relationship to Catholic life. Accessibly written, How Do Catholics Read the Bible? blends biblical scholarship with compelling personal anecdotes to equip readers with the tools they need to more fully engage Scripture and the Catholic tradition. With chapters on how the Catholic canon came to be, what the Church teaches about the Bible, appropriate methods for analyzing Scripture passages, and how to incorporate the Bible into everyday life, this book is ideal for individual or group use in parishes and classrooms. Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and recommendations for further reading.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Excellent "Academic" Introduction  Mar 17, 2007
Fr. Harrington has given us a fine introduction to reading the Bible for Catholics. He covers all the essentials and gives due attention to the reading of the text as it is, without spending an inordinate amount of time on the essentially speculative nature of source-critical methods. Following the Pontifical Biblical Commission's lead, he is careful not to enshrine the historical-critical method as the only way to read the Bible. In this way he opens the reader up to wider perspectives of reasoned interpretation on the text as a human document, while always bringing the reader back to the divine nature of the text as well.

While he steers clear of controversies, he fails to recognize that the "pastoral" Vatican II did indeed settle some theological debates and went on to explicitly affirm a great deal of the tradition. Harrington seems to advocate the perspective of "limited innerancy" by either (at best) solely emphasizing or (at worst) fallaciously implying that "for the sake of our salvation" is meant to limit the scope of the "saving truth" that is "without error" (p. 34, quoting Dei Verbum 11). Dei Verbum 11 states that "Everything asserted by the inspired authors or sacred writers must be held to be asserted by the Holy Spirit." In addition to this, Dei Verbum goes on to say that the sacred writers or authors wrote "ALL and ONLY those things which he [God] wished to be written" (11, emphasis mine). If this is the case, then the answer to inerrancy is not to limit it arbitrary to what we consider to be "saving truth," but to strive to discover what has been asserted by the sacred writer, because what is asserted by the writer is also asserted by the Holy Spirit (cf. DV 11). Furthermore, Augustin Cardinal Bea SJ, who was closely associated with the text of Dei Verbum at the Council, has written about this matter in his book, "The Word of God and Mankind." Speaking of the connection between "saving truth" and the possibility that "for the sake of our salvation" limits such inerrancy, Cardinal Bea writes that "there is not the slightest sign of any such inidication." Clarifying, he writes that "the phrase in which the text speaks of salvation explains God's purpose in causing the Scriptures to be written, and not the nature of the truth enshrined therein." It is clear, not only from this but from the footnotes that the council cites in this section of Dei Verbum, that the Council fathers clearly affirmed inerrancy in the same tradition as St. Thomas Aquinas, Leo XIII, and Pius XII, and did not embrace in any sense a restricted form of inerrancy. For an excellent look at inerrancy, see Aidan Nichols OP "The Shape of Catholic Theology," published by The Liturgical Press, 1991.

Despite this, Father Harrinton's book is excellent. The only remaining flaw is that it fails to give a real introduction to the Scriptures as the means of an encounter with Christ. Father Harrinton asserts something like this on several occasions and even does a fine job of describing lectio divina. However, there is little in this introduction that introduces one to the Scriptures in a way that they become the means of an encounter with Christ. As such, this remains an academic book and in a certain sense fails to be a full introduction to the way Catholics read the Bible. With this reservation, I still recommend this book highly.
