Description:

Winner of a third-place award in Spanish books from the Association of Catholic Publishers.

Love for the Bible is at the heart of Hispanic Catholicism. This basic introduction teaches lay ministers and other interested Catholics how to interpret the Bible as the Church does and to appreciate the role of the Holy Spirit who animates the Word in our everyday lives. Rev. Rafael M. Ramirez—a scripture scholar at the University of Dallas and popular speaker throughout the United States—shows how the loving self-communication of God in scripture can be interpreted and applied to our lives in powerful ways.

La Biblia: Introducción a la Sagrada Escritura offers Hispanic Catholics a foundation for understanding the Bible and praying with it in harmony with the traditions of the Church. By approaching the Bible as loving communication—as encouraged in the Catechism of the Catholic Church and in recent statements by Popes Benedict XVI and Francis—the book’s three-part structure helps us understand how the Word of God has passed through three great stages in salvation history:

  • the Revealed Word—God reveals himself in words and deeds
  • the Inspired Word—the Bible is the Word of God because it is inspired by the Holy Spirit
  • the Interpreted Word—the Church interprets the Word

In La Biblia, you will learn the difference between a Catholic approach and a literalist or fundamentalist approach to reading and understanding the Bible. You will come away with the realization that the scriptures have been shared and interpreted by the Church since the beginning, helping us to understand our faith as we strive to live it today. This concise book will help you appreciate that scripture is, and always has been, present in the Church and that the Bible belongs to the whole Church. It is a living reality that resonates with ordinary people today as it did twenty centuries ago.

The book is available only in Spanish.

            Ave Maria Press

            Serving the Catholic Community for Over 150 Years!

            Ave Maria Press, established in 1865 by Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., Ave Maria Press remains committed to its core mission in more than 150 years. It began as the third apostolate of Holy Cross in the US and published "The Ave Maria" magazine by Fr. Sorin with three goals in mind: to glorify Mary, highlight Catholic families, and present the best American Catholic writing.

            Ave Maria thrived for over 100 years and became the most popular Catholic magazine in the country. Under the leadership of Rev. Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C., the magazine grew and started publishing hardcover books. Holy Cross religious, including priests, brothers, and sisters, played essential roles in the magazine's operation. After the magazine ceased publication in 1970, Ave Maria Press focused on book publishing and has since published works by notable Catholic authors.

            Now owned by the United States Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross, Ave Maria Press remains one of the oldest Catholic publishing houses, specializing in religion textbooks, ministry resources, and books on prayer and spirituality.
