Catholic interpretation of the Bible

Professor Felix Just SJ has a very helpful collection of Church documents which relate to the interpretation of scripture in the Church. As well as the full texts of various documents there are a couple of summaries which can help you grasp the main points. A further edition of the document entitled ‘The Interpretation of the Bible in the Church’ is worth checking because it is well set out and divides the document into manageable sections. Study of these documents is worthwhile, so that you understand the difference between the Church’s interpretation of scripture and the fundamentalist approach.
