A Beginner’s Guide to Reading the Bible

One of Bevil Bramwell‘s books entitled Catholics Read the Scriptures is a commentary about Benedict XVI’s Verbum Domini. In this book, the author-priest unpacks the meaning and importance of the scriptures to the people so they can familiarize their content. Pope Benedict’s Verbum Domini is a post-synodal apostolic exhortation that deals with how the Catholic church and its people should approach and connect with the Bible. Its readers are reminded about their relationship with God and how it depends on growing familiarity with His word, thus posing why Christians need to read or be familiar with the Bible.
