A friend of mine was recently given a full Bible and asked if I could read through the book of Tobit with her. When we discussed the details of doing this, it turned out one of the things she is hoping to learn is how to read the Bible the way I do as representative of the way the Church teaches people to read the Bible. While flattering, this is also kinda a big responsibility and I want to make sure I do the best I can. We're probably going to spend a lot of time discussing the differences in our approaches to Bible-reading, but I was hoping for an overview as sort of a place to start. Her church is St. Alban's, if that helps.
