...clearly explains not only the Old and New Testaments, but also the way Christians have understood Scripture over the last 2,000 years. -- David Morrison, New Covenant Magazine
A terrific book, accessible and valuable both to folks who are familiar with sacred texts and those who are not. Engaging and even entertaining. -- David Morrison, New Covenant Magazine
In readable, common-sense prose, Shea... makes the roots of the Christian world view accessible in the days of "dot-com." -- Helen Valois, National Catholic Register
Jesus and the Apostles discerned both the literal and spiritual senses of Scripture, but their rich method is lost on most modern Christians. Mark Shea has done us a good turn by teaching this lost art. Read this book; then read Scripture with new eyes. -- Mike Aquilina, Editor, New Covenant Magazine
Shea's effort...echoes St. Thomas Aquinas' basic work explaining the different ways we view Scripture and reflects much of his light as well. -- David Morrison, New Covenant Magazine
Shea's text is scholarly but not stuffy. His writing style is fresh, even breezy, demonstrating nicely that Bible study can be serious and fun at the same time. -- Nancy Hartnagel, Catholic News Service
Three cheers to Mark Shea! This is a book to be snapped up--and read--all the way through. The prose makes easy reading (a great virtue); but the depth and sweep of the material will draw any reader, beginner or expert, into rich vistas. I recommend it highly. -- Dr. Thomas Howard, author of "Evangelical Is Not Enough"
