Making Senses Out of Scripture: Reading the Bible as the First Christians Did by Mark Shea
Reading the Bible in a way that is as old as Scripture itself, award-winning author Mark P. Shea takes us on a “fly-over” of the biblical story from Genesis to Revelation. He shows you how to explore the literal, allegorical, moral, and analogical sense of Scripture.
Whether you have been studying Scripture for years, or are encountering it for the very first time, Making Senses Out of Scripture is an invaluable tool that it will help you see biblical revelation afresh, as Christians have done for 2000 years.
“Making Senses Out of Scripture is a wonderfully helpful guide for reading the Bible according to the Church’s living Tradition. It skillfully draws in the riches of the Catholic Faith and clearly communicates Her deep truths, yet it is written with a witty and winsome style that makes the book as accessible to the beginning student of Scripture as it is to the advanced. I highly recommend it.”
- Scott Hahn, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Theology and Scripture, Franciscan University of Steubenville
“Three cheers to Mark Shea! This is a book to be snapped up and read all the way through. The prose makes easy reading (a great virtue); but the depth and sweep of the material will draw any reader, beginner or expert, into rich vistas. I recommend it highly.”
- Thomas Howard, Author of On Being Catholic and Evangelical Is Not Enough
“Jesus and the Apostles discerned both the literal and spiritual senses of Scripture, but their rich method is lost on most modern Christians. Mark Shea has done us a good turn by teaching this lost art. Read this book; then read Scripture with new eyes.”
- Mike Aquilina, Editor, New Covenant Magazine
