Not only will reading Scripture daily enrich and nourish your soul but it will also provide you with solid answers to many of life's most urgent questions -- from the Introduction. If you are less than familiar with the Bible, you might be surprised at what you'll find there. Is drinking alcohol a sin? Do Christians have an absolute assurance of salvation? Is the rosary really a biblical prayer? And what's up with the Rapture? Patrick Madrid leads the reader on an investigation of what Scripture has to say about these and many other topics, revealing, in the process, the biblical roots of much Catholic teaching. Does the Bible Really Say That? is a lively and practical guide that provides answers to issues faced by Catholics everywhere.
