Dear Friends:

I begin with an invitation to hear colleague 
Miroslav Volf speak at Ambrose University, 
Calgary, Friday, November 18th, at 7:00 PM.

Here are the particulars:

Currently, we are studying Dr. Volf's 
latest book "A Public Faith" (see the
details below under my special Friday 
Faith and Spirituality University of 
Calgary Fall Study Series.)


Remembrance Day Weekend is a time to
consider the sacrifices of those who
gave their lives in wars to preserve
peace. It is a time to re-commit 
ourselves to work for peace wherever 
we can.

Marlene and I were reminded of this
again this year when we visited the
disastrous WWII Canadian landing sites
at Dieppe, as well as the Allied 
landing sites and cemeteries further
west on the coast. These are must-see 
places of pilgrimage when in Normandy.


My special item this week is a book
notice on the title: "What the Bible
Really Tells Us: The Essential Guide
to Biblical Literacy" by T. J. Wray.

Last week, I introduced a new biblical
introduction by Bishop John Spong. Here 
is a rather different contribution. 

Together, they offer important progressive 
Christian theological perspectives.

The Essential Guide 
to Biblical Literacy

By T. J. Wray

Publishers, Lanham, MD.
Oct. 2011. $24.95US. 249 pp.
ISBN #978-0-7425-6253-0

Publisher's Promo:

The Bible is the foundational text for Jews 
and Christians, but most people, having little 
knowledge of what it actually says, feel less 
than uncomfortable navigating its pages. "What 
the Bible Really Tells Us" solves this problem, 
providing a thorough, yet accessible, guide to 
the Good Book and the ways in which it can 
enrich one’s life.

Opening with a 60-Second Super-Easy Bible Quiz 
to test your knowledge, author T. J. Wray then 
provides essential background information to 
arm readers with tools necessary to read and 
interpret passages on their own. And, with 
these tools in hand, Wray helps readers explore 
what the Bible really says about key issues 

What the Bible Really Tells Us is an indispensable
guide for individuals and groups interested in 
gaining a fuller understanding of the Bible and 
the timeless lessons it imparts.


Author's Words:

A recent Gallop poll asked a group of over a
thousand Americans to declare... their views about
the Bible.

Of those polled, 31 percent said they believed the
Bible was the actual word of God, and that it should
be taken literally. 47 percent said that the Bible,
though inspired by God, should not always be taken
literally. Only 19 per cent said that they believe
that the Bible is a collection of ancient fables, 
history and legends recorded by humans. We can
conclude, then, that the overwhelming majority of
those polled at the very least, take the Bible

(Still) based on my many years of teaching and 
talking to many religious (and non-religious) 
groups about the Bible, I have come to believe 
that, for many, the Bible has become more a symbol 
of faith - more like a cross or an icon - rather 
than inspired writings that have sustained many 
generations through the joys an tragedies of life.

Oftentimes when people find out what I teach, they
waste no time trying to engage me in a discussion
about such hot-button issues as abortion or
homosexuality... (but) few, if any, have ever
studied the Bible in a serious way with a competent

... when it comes to ancient texts like the Bible,
many lack even the most basic skills of discernment. 

"What the Bible really tells Us" seeks to address
the real and urgent problem of contemporary 
biblical illiteracy...

This is not, however, a "how to read the Bible"
book... (instead) we will seek to understand the
communications of the ancient Jewish and Christian
communities whose struggles were so different from
and so similar to our own.

(Understanding the Bible is not easy) but I also
know that gaining proficiency in reading the Bible
is not rocket science.

My first three chapters are designed to help you
understand the problems of biblical illiteracy 
and to arm you with some basic tools to help you
read and understand the Bible.

The seven biblical themes that occupy chapters
four through 10 will expose you to a variety of
biblical texts and allow you to use these tools.

These latter chapters are entitled:

Why do we suffer?
Heaven and Hell
The Surprising Truth about Wealth and Riches
A Brief Exploration of Sexuality and Gender
The Essential Aspects of Biblical Law and Justice
The Bible and the Environment
Communicating with God through Prayer and Worship

The idea here is to engage the Bible with topics
that are of likely interest to most readers...


In discussing each theme I have tried to remain
faithful to the thoughts, ideas and intentions
(as well as I discern them) of the biblical
author or authors, something I hope you will
also learn to do... I hope you will view this
book as a starting point for further study...

At the beginning of each semester, I hold up
the Bible and say to my class: "This is a book
that has changed the lives of millions of people.
It has inspired, comforted, and sustained
generations through the countless challenges of
life. But it has also been used as a way to
justify hatred, and every imaginable social
injustice under the sun, all in the name of God. 
It is my hope that by the end of the semester, 
you will be able to read and understand the Bible, 
to discuss it intelligently with others, and to 
recognize when others abuse it."

This is also my hope for everyone who reads
"What the Bible Really Tells Us."

- from the Introduction


My Thoughts:

T. J. (Tina) Wray  is an associate professor
of religious studies at Salve Regina
University, a Catholic institution located 
in Newport, Rhode Island.

That a book like "What the Bible Really
Tells Us" should appear from a professor
at a Catholic university today is evidence
that much regarding the study of scripture
has changed in the Roman Church since
Vatican II.

When I first began relating to fellow-Catholic
seminarians during the 1960's, they were only 
beginning to study scripture with the goal of 
interpreting it to their future congregations. 
Now, we have good evidence from the work of 
academics like Wray that Catholic biblical
scholarship has come full circle and can 
compare with - sometimes even surpass - the
work done in Protestant schools.


Several weeks ago I was at a Lutheran
clergy gathering where the preacher for
the day was attempting to interpret a
rather difficult biblical passage to
his fellow church professionals. He made
a telling statement, reflective of his
theological formation - "We need to deal 
with this passage because it is in the Bible,
no matter whether we think it should be 
there or not."

Too often, in my experience with more
liberal Protestants, the advice that
I am given is - "We can ignore this passage
because it no longer applies to us and our 
context today.


T. J. Wray takes the text of the Bible 
seriously, but that does not mean to reads 
it literally. In good scholarly fashion she 
unpacks the original book or passage under 
consideration and outlines a full range of 
interpretations that might be taken from 
biblical context. She then suggests some
of the alternate interpretations we might
consider now.

Her approach displays a good deal of both 
classic Catholic teaching on a  given subject, 
but also contemporary interpretations. She 
gives tools to her readers to help them 
formulate meaningful interpretations that are
both grounded in the tradition but open to
future understandings.


Biblical theology has truly become
an ecumenical enterprise - a far cry
from the days when arguments from
scripture were used to pick fights
with Christians of other persuasions.

The focus in many quarters today is
on common struggle to find truth amid
confusing interpretive variations.

I recommend this book to laypersons
and religious studies students alike.
It bridges the gap between the academy
and real life, and does not sell the
Bible or the modern seeker short in the

Priest's killing in Philippines revives 
anti-violence campaign

Manila, Philippines (ENI news) - The killing 
of a well-loved priest in southern Philippines 
has inspired the revival of a campaign to end 
political killings, supported by international 
faith and human rights groups, church workers 
said. "Those behind the killing of Father 
Fausto Tentorio may have wanted to create 
a chilling effect on those committed to 
the cause of peace and justice. But the 
impact was otherwise," Sister Elsa Compuesto, 
executive secretary of the Sisters Association 
of Mindanao, told ENInews in an interview on 
4 November.

Climate justice youth caravan 
heads for South Africa

Nairobi, Kenya (ENI news) - About 200 
young people travelling in a caravan 
of buses left Nairobi on 7 November to 
promote action on climate change. 
Their two-week trip, punctuated with 
music, dance and drama and sponsored 
by faith-based and secular groups, 
will end in Durban, South Africa at
the United Nations Framework Convention 
on Climate Change's conference called 
COP-17. "Climate change requires a 
justice response. We cannot to afford
to see it differently. It is not only 
an economic, but also a moral ethical 
issue. It needs a response that 
addresses the injustices it has 
caused so far," Paul Mbole, Kenya 
country coordinator for Norwegian 
Church Aid, one of the supporting 
agencies, told ENInews at a launch 
event on 6 November.

In Indonesia, religious peace 
is at risk, says leader

Berlin, 8 November (ENI news) - Indonesia has 
seen a sharp increase in religious violence 
over recent years, with radical Muslim groups 
targeting both Christians and members of the 
minority Ahmadiyah community. But at an 
ecumenical seminar in Germany, the chair of 
the Communion of Churches in Indonesia (CCI) 
explained that the country's religious leaders 
have a common aim in promoting tolerance and 
harmony. "Leaders of the Christian community, 
together with other religious leaders 
(especially Muslims), have always made 
an effort to maintain healthy cooperative 
relationships," the Rev. Andreas Yewangoe 
said at Ruhr University, Bochum on 8 November. 
"The nation's problems are seen as problems 
that we must face together." 

Burma stepping up attacks on 
Christians, says rights group

8 November (ENI news)- Soldiers shot 
at worshippers at a church, tortured 
the pastor and forced dozens of 
congregants to work as porters for 
the army in military-ruled Burma, also 
known as Myanmar, an organization that 
advocates for religious freedom said in 
a statement on 8 November. Soldiers from 
the Burma Army's 88th Light Infantry 
Division had attacked the Assemblies 
of God church in Muk Chyik, a village 
in Kachin, Burma's northernmost state 
bordering China, on 6 November, 
according to Christian Solidarity 
Worldwide (CSW), based in New Malden,
Surrey, England.

Faith groups urge dialogue 
in Indonesia on West Papua

9 November (ENI news) - Faith groups 
are calling attention to what they see 
as injustice for the indigenous people 
of West Papua at the hands of the 
Indonesian government. An Indonesian 
church group has urged the government 
and the people of West Papua who are 
seeking independence to "carry out a 
dialogue as a commitment to resolve 
the issue of violence." The natives 
"are still treated unfairly by the 
government and ... treated inhumanely 
by security officials because [the 
natives are] accused of having 
committed treason," said the Communion 
of Churches in Indonesia (CCI) on 7 

Freedom of religion in Russia 
faces increased limits

9 November (ENI news)- A veteran human 
rights campaigner has warned of growing 
restrictions on religious freedom in 
Russia, and urged Western governments 
and churches to do more to address the 
issue. "Although the [officially atheist] 
Soviet Union collapsed 20 years ago ... 
religious believers still face serious 
problems," said the Rev. Michael 
Bourdeaux, president of the Oxford, 
U.K.-based Keston Institute, which 
studies religion in Russia and Eastern 
Europe. "What really worries me is that 
no one is holding Russia to account. 
The right and duty to monitor each 
country's human rights record, 
established in the 1970s, seem to 
have been forgotten," he said.

In Madagascar, churches intensify 
reconciliation efforts

Nairobi, Kenya (ENI news) - As 
politicians in Madagascar back proposals 
to end a three year political crisis, 
churches in the island nation off the 
east coast of Africa are intensifying 
work for peace, according to a senior 
Protestant leader. Churches have held 
peace conferences that have brought 
denominations together, delivered peace 
messages at worship services and promoted 
forgiveness and reconciliation, according 
to the Rev. Lala Rasendrahasina, President 
of the Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar, 
in an e-mail interview with ENInews. Known 
by the Malagasy acronym FJKM, it is the 
largest Protestant church with 2.5 million 

Accidents in Asia highlight 
dangers of pilgrimages

Kathmandu, Nepal (ENI news) - At least 
18 Hindu pilgrims, mostly women, were 
killed in a road accident in Nepal on 
10 November, underlining incidences of 
accidental deaths during pilgrimages and 
religious gatherings in Asia. Police 
said the accident occurred after a tractor 
pulling a trailer packed with nearly six 
dozen people veered out of control in 
southern Nepal and fell into an irrigation 
canal. The group was heading towards a 
religious festival at Baraha Chhetra, 
a temple dedicated to the Baraha Avatar, 
an incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu. 


Muslim group banned in Britain 
ahead of planned demonstration

Canterbury, England (ENI news) - Britain's 
Home Secretary, Theresa May, announced on 
10 November that an extremist Islamist group 
called Muslims Against Crusades will be banned, 
starting at midnight (GMT). The parliamentary 
order, handed down in London, will make 
membership in the group a criminal offense. 
The group had planned to stage in London on 
11 November a demonstration called Hell for 
Heroes on the day millions of Britons honor 
the dead of two world wars and wars in 
Afghanistan and Iraq.

Church attacked in Kenya 
as threats hamper relief work

Nairobi, Kenya (ENI news) - After grenade 
attacks on a church in northern Kenya blamed 
on Islamic extremists, religious leaders said 
they were redoubling inter-faith peace efforts. 
At the same time, about 100 kilometers away, 
Christian relief agencies were carrying out 
humanitarian work in Dadaab, the world's 
biggest refugee camp, despite security threats. 
Two grenades were lobbed into the East Africa 
Pentecostal Church compound in the town of 
Garissa on 5 November, killing two people 
and injuring five others. The attack has 
been blamed on al-Shabab militants who are 
facing a Kenyan military operation in 
southern Somalia.


Black seminaries embrace hip-hop

Washington, D.C. (ENI news) - It's hard 
enough to get young people out of bed and 
into the pews on a Sunday morning, but 
two leading black seminaries think they
 have found a way to grab the next 
generation, reports Religion News Service: 
hip-hop. "If we're going to take young 
people seriously, we have no choice," 
said Alton B. Pollard III, dean of the 
Howard University School of Divinity. 


Japan's Christian leaders criticize 
government involvement in trade talks

Tokyo (ENI news) - Japan's Christian 
leaders have criticized the government's 
decision to participate in the Trans-
Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade 
negotiations currently underway among 
the United States and eight other 
partners. "The government's decision 
is against the principle of democracy, 
and lacks an explanation of the merits 
and demerits," said the Rev. Isamu 
Koshiishi, moderator of the National 
Christian Council in Japan (NCCJ).

"But the Christianity that called to me, 
through the stories I read in the Bible, 
scattered the proud and rebuked the 
powerful. It was a religion in which 
divinity was revealed by scars on flesh. It 
was an upside-down world in which treasure, 
as the prophet said, was found in darkness; 
in which the hungry were filled with good 
things, and the rich sent out empty; in 
which new life was manifested through a 
humiliated, hungry woman and an empty, 
tortured man."

- Thomas Merton 

Merton sees the face of faces in all faces. The
Cosmic Christ in all beings and all peoples. But
to get to that face one must go deeper than the
outer appearances and the masks and roles people
take on. We need to travel inside others to find
the Christ there, just as we need to travel into
our deepest and truest self to find the Christ
in ourselves.

- Matthew Fox in "Christian Mystics"
