The Bible Today
For anyone who wants to enrich his or her understanding of the Gospels, this booklet is a good tool to begin with.
This book makes the science of biblical interpretation available to every reader of the Bible. Jeremy Corley illustrates the major exegetical approaches to the Gospels by examining the narrative of the widow's mites (Mark 12:41-44; Luke 21:1-4). In so doing, he exposes the richness of the biblical text to anyone who considers it from such a diversity of viewpoints. This book is essential for introductory courses on the Gospels and the New Testament; for all religious educators, leaders of RCIA and sacramental preparation programs, lectors, deacons, priests, and pastoral workers; and for anyone who practices lectio divina or who animates his and her prayer life by regular reading of Scripture. Anyone who reads this book will appreciate 'the Interpretation of the Bible in the Church.'
