Drew Christiansen, S.J., editor in chief of America, previews the Synod on the Word of God, the worldwide gathering of bishops taking place in October to discuss the place of Scripture in the life of the church. America's special issue on the synod covers the meeting from a variety of angles, looking at the Catholic understanding of the Old Testament, lectio divina and the preaching and proclamation of the Word. How can the church make the second reading from Paul better known? Can the revitalization of Scripture help renew the study of moral theology? Fr. Christiansen discusses these and other issues in this wide-ranging interview. font color="#333333" size="-1">Listen to this episode
