From the introduction of the book: "All of the Scripture, in fact, has been sent to us as nourishment for our lives.The apostle Paul points this out to his disciple Timothy:“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work” (2 Tim 3:16-17).Through listening to the Sacred Scripture we are able to grow as people of God, “equipped for every good work.”Of course, it is not a matter of just reading as we would read any other book.We come to the Bible with an interior attitude of wanting to hear a word which warms and changes our own lives.(…). Benedict XVI has spoken of this many times.In the reflection upon the opening of the Synod of Bishops, he said: “Furthermore, the Word of God is the foundation of everything, it is the true reality".
