A book presentation exploring the great questions surrounding Biblical interpretation since the Enlightenment
with Fr. Ignacio CARBAJOSA, Professor at San Dámaso University, Madrid, and author of Faith, the Fount of Exegesis
Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center the Catholic Information Center
Can there be objective biblical research without faith? By studying the history of the interpretation of the Old Testament in the last two centuries, Fr. Carabajosa uncovers the philosophical premises of the dominant interpretations and their deceptive claims to objectivity. Biblical research tainted by an inadequate use of reason actually makes a true understanding of Holy Scripture dicult. On the contrary, by broadening reason, faith allows for a more adequate approach to the biblical text, which itself is the fruit of faith.
The event is free and open to the public.
