Living with the New Testament
Scott Lewis, SJ
Number of pages: 32
Living with the New Testament walks readers through the creation of the New Testament writings, the authors behind the texts, the meaning of the texts and the best way to connect spiritually with the New Testament.
This informative and insightful booklet offers a brief history of the New Testament, an in-depth discussion of the four gospels and the book of Revelation, and a look into some of the letters by St. Paul and other writers. The author also includes questions to guide reflection. Living with the New Testament will enrich readers’ knowledge of this ancient yet relevant section of the Bible and will lead them into a deeper understanding of Christ.
The Living with… series is designed to strengthen spiritual practice in the daily life of busy contemporary Catholics. By offering moments for prayer and meditation, along with nuggets of valuable information, each booklet answers the many questions thoughtful Catholics have about living a faith-filled life in today’s relentlessly secular world.
A practical, accessible and comprehensive series covering Catholic traditions and their role in finding grace in everyday life.
