Great Scott!

The bishops are gathered in Rome for the Synod on the Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church. On Tuesday, my friend and colleague Scott Hahn got quoted by the apostolic vicar of Benghazi, Libya.

It is the Church which came before the Scriptures; the Church that produced the Scriptures with divine assistance, and that preserved their integrity through the threats of persecution and heresy – it is the Church that gathered the Scriptures together in a book – a book that sustains all who call themselves Christian.

The passage is from his book Reasons to Believe: How to Understand, Explain, and Defend the Catholic Faith.
