Ways to Read the Bible (from Ascension Press) 

As Catholics, we know that the Bible is the Word of God, but we often become frustrated or confused when the Bible doesn’t seem to make sense.
We sit in our prayer spaces and scratch our head over confusing passages and the pages of details and rules in the Old Testament.
We find ourselves searching Scripture for inspiration and answers but sometimes come up short because of difficult passages. And we wonder how it all applies to our daily lives.
It can be really discouraging.

The experience of reading the Bible can be so much more.
It can be life-giving. It can help us gain a deeper understanding of who God is and how we fit into his plan. It can give us courage and community as we walk in our faith.
In this video, Fr. Mike explores different ways to approach the Bible. He offers several reasons for you to pick up your Bible again, see it with new eyes, and allow it to transform your life. Watch it here!
