A friend gave me The Catholic Review (Oct. 23). We are studying the Bible and I was fascinated by the seven questions referred to in the worldwide Bible study survey. My question: what was the percentage of Protestants vs. Catholics who answered 100 percent of the questions correctly? This is a more revealing fact than those who failed four or more questions.
The questions were so very, very basic that it does not indicate much to me, even if answered correctly. I have studied for six years and find that I am far from being as knowledgeable as my Protestant friends. On the other hand, my approach is, in my opinion, more searching than them – they can quote ad infinitum, but the meaning is a different story.
