No wrong way The Catholic Update Guide to the Bible does a bang-up job of presenting the library-like book as a piece, summarizing the books of the Old Testament and explaining the New Testament with gospel comparisons and an overview of the book of Acts. In the final chapter, editor Mary Carol Kendzia gives concrete suggestions on how to approach reading, praying, and studying the Bible. First, there's no one way that works for everyone, and even the several experts whose work she draws on emphasize different methods. The message is stay flexible and incorporate the information from the first three chapters when considering guidelines like the following: • Don't start at the beginning and plow through. • Start with the New Testament, familiar gospels, or Acts. • Read sections, and read aloud--that's the way the stories were first encountered. • Read the introductions and footnotes. • Reflect on passages. • Imagine yourself as part of the story. • Always invoke the Holy Spirit.
