Launch of Gospel Books at Brentwood Cathedral

Bishop Thomas McMahon, the Bishop of Brentwood, attended the launch of Take and Read: The Gospels which is an excellent new series designed to help people explore the Bible more deeply.

Bishop Thomas said: 'I am delighted to host the launch of Take and Read: the Gospels, edited by Father Adrian Graffy and published by Alive Publishing the publishers of Bible Alive.

The contributing authors, Fr Henry Wansbrough, Fr John Henry and Mr Ian Boxall, scripture scholars and experts in their field, have written the series in such an accessible and easy style, making it a wonderful resource for everybody, individuals, parishes and schools. In Take and Read; the Gospels there is so much to quarry. I highly recommend it.'  

Fr Adrian Graffy, the editor of the series said: 'The Bishops of England and Wales published the teaching document Gift of Scripture which was so well received. Take and Read: the Gospels is a response to their encouragement in that document to 'engage prayerfully with the scriptures' and our hope is that Take and Read: the Gospels will give particular encouragement to families and to young people to get to know the Bible better. 

The ancient practice of Lectio Divina, prayerful reading of the scriptures, has been taken up by man people today. Take and Read encourages that prayerful reading of the gospels. 

The books can be used both by individuals and by groups gathering to study and pray.

Each volume presents twelve passages with explanation, accompanied by quotations from the Fathers and Church documents, Christian art and inspiring photographs, and suggestions for prayer and reflection.
