"How should we interpret the Word of God? Many of our evangelical brothers believe that the Bible does not require an interpretative framework, that is, the Bible is self-interpreting and does not need anyone to explain its meaning. As Catholics we believe that Scripture cannot be wrenched from the Church who gave it to us. In order to read the Bible for all its worth, then we must read it in light of the Church’s teachings.
Dr. Scott Hahn, as a former Protestant, knows what it is like to try to read the Bible in the way God never intended—alone! The principle of sola Scriptura (“the Bible alone”) has caused a host of problems within Christianity, and has moved us further away from Our Lord Jesus’ prayer in St. John’s Gospel: “That they may be one” (John 17:21).
This is the definitive audio set on the interpretation of Scripture (also known as “hermeneutics”) which every Catholic must have and every Protestant should have. Make sure to grab two copies, one for you and the other for your evangelical neighbor.
The following titles in this set are:
- How to Interpret The Bible In Light of Catholic Teaching”
-Principles of Biblical Interpretation
- Scripture and the Canon or Sola Scriptura
- The Relationship Between the Old and New Testaments
- Literary Forms and Genres"
