    This was a very solid, accessible treatment of how to read Scripture. The author sets out the various "senses" of scripture, including the literal, allegorical, moral and anagogical meanings of scripture.

    Part 1 is a summary of salvation history from Genesis to Acts. Part 2 covers the four senses of Scripture. I've only finished the first part. I've read other summaries, bible histories, etc., but Mark Shea makes the story exciting.
