Catholic Basics: A Pastoral Ministry Series The book contains the basic and preliminary information that you and your fellow adult Catholics need to know to correctly understand Scripture. We all know from history, and perhaps from our personal experience, that some people use the Bible to instill hate and fear rather than love and peace. A person who misunderstands the Bible can be misguided as well as dangerous. It is important that we, as adults, understand the mistakes in thinking that result in these harmful interpretations so that we can name them for others. This book will help you do that. -From the introductionRalph, Margaret Nutting is the author of 'Scripture Nourished by the Word' with ISBN 9780829417203 and ISBN 0829417206.
