Jesus of Nazareth by Pope Benedict XVI

I just received a copy in the mail yesterday and am reading during my break. I just came across something pertinent to the essay I posted here. And he also touches on something else I wrote about here.

In the Foreword, the Holy Father writes concerning the historical-critical method and the four senses of scripture:

There are dimensions of the word that the old doctrine of the fourfold sense of Scripture pinpointed with remarkable accuracy. The four senses of Scripture are not individual meanings arrayed side by side, but dimensions of the one word that reaches beyond the moment.

I love our German shepherd! I'm really looking forward to delving into this book.
