The second of two winter interterm courses, this five-week study will build on the concepts developed in Opening the Word: Catholics and the Bible and will press further into questions of how to go about understanding the Bible. It will move from theory to practice, from guiding principles to their application in the actual task of discerning the meaning and message of biblical texts. If the previous course provided the groundwork for reading, studying, praying, living, and proclaiming the Sacred Scriptures, this course aims to equip us with the tools for doing exactly that. This is a learn-how-to-do-it course for those who wish to grow in their ability to study Scripture as faithful and growing Christians.
