On page xi of the preface of "Introduction to the Bible," the author writes,
"I want to encourage and assure you that putting the Bible at the heart of your life in Christ can indeed transform you. When you make reflective reading and study of the Bible a part of your daily life, you will notice changes within yourself that will deepen your spirituality and lead you in a direction you sincerely desire. As you reflect on this ancient, inspired literature of God's family, you will become ever more a child of God and enter more deeply into a personal relationshiip with Jesus the Lord. This book is only an invitation to that adventure of a lifetime. I pray that it will lead you to a renewed and committed life in Christ's church."
Stephen Binz, "Introduction to the Bible," Liturgical Press, 2007, pxi
There is no better way of getting in touch with one's deepest desires and very best and authentic self.
