Scott Hahn shows that Scripture is not a dead letter but rather a great, living gift from God. Indeed, it is “spirit and life” to those who will unwrap and embrace it. Spirit and Life: Interpreting the Bible in Ordinary Time provides the reader with a greater appreciation of the Living Word.
This book’s nine essays provide fresh insights into important biblical themes such as the connection of Scripture, liturgy, and the Church and Christ as Majestic Judge vs. Christ as the Lamb.
