    I have been teaching Bible studies in my local Catholic parishes for almost nine years and I have never found a book for lay beginners as wonderful as Catholic Guide to the Bible. I have used it as a text book for introductory courses to the Bible and have recommended it to many friends and family as well. Fr. Lukefahr gives a concise description of the contents of each book of the Bible, describes the history of the Israelite people, and explains difficult theological concepts such as Imperfect Theology, Progressive Revelation, and Salvation History in simple, easy to understand language that even the most inexperienced lay person will understand. I highly recommend it and suggest it be purchased along with the Handbook that goes with it. Definitely 5 stars!!
