The winner of Mark Shea's By What Authority?: An Evangelical Discovers Catholic Tradition is:
Patty in PA
Congrats Patty! If you're not Patty and you'd still like to own this book, it is available at Mark's website along with a talk of the same title. Have I mentioned that Mark is a public speaker and would like you to invite him to your parish or conference? Mark's books are also available from amazon.com or your favorite Catholic book store.
Today's book is Making Senses Out of Scripture: Reading the Bible as the First Christians Did [Basilica] by, yes you guessed it, Mark Shea. Now, this is a cool topic. I love reading about the early Christians.
Reading the Bible in a way as old as Scripture itself, this book takes the reader on a "fly-over" of the biblical story from Genesis to Revelation and invites us to explore the literal, allegorical, moral and anagogical senses of Scripture. Whether you've been studying Scripture for years or are encountering it for the very first time, Making Senses Out of Scripture is an invaluable tool that will help you see biblical revelation afresh—as Christians have done for 2000 years.
