Composing Sacred Scripture: How the Bible was Formed

By Donald Senior CP

Composing Sacred Scripture: How the Bible Was Formed presents the fascinating story of the Bible’s formation. Taking shape over centuries, the Bible was incubated in the liturgical life of Hebrew and Christian communities, nourished by their prayer and preaching. Fr. Donald Senior deftly introduces readers to the anatomy of the Bible and the history of its development. Who wrote the texts? When were they written? How were the books of the canon chosen? Fr. Senior shares the best current Bible scholarship and also explains the Church’s teachings about the inspired and revealed written Word of God. This book will intrigue and satisfy everyone engaged in ministries of the Word and all who want to deepen their Christian faith.

Paperback 5 3/8 x 8 3/8, 144 Pages.
