Father Mitch Pacwa, is a theologian well known for his ability to explain and interpret the Catholic faith to audiences familiar with his appearances on the Eternal Word Television Network. He enjoys a renown that requires no other endorement than his words themselves.
In this book, we find another expression of Father Pacwa's ability to teach in a way that draws others ever more deeply into the mysteries of the faith. Pope Benedict XVI's proclaiming a Year of Faith is the occasion for the publication of this text that brings together Scripture and theology, using the method exemplified in the preaching and writing of the Holy Father himself.
Faith gives theology its subject matter or data from God's self-revelation in human history. Faith tells us that the books of Scripture that proclaim the mighty works of God are the Word of God in human words. Since faith and reason are partners in the human pursuit of truth, the believers are impelled by faith to explore the sacred texts of Scripture and reflect upon them intelligently. Father Pacwa gives us a method for doing so, with well-chosen quotes from the Bible and Magisterium. His own words are a solid guide that offers commentary designed to inform our mind and stir our heart.
