Drawing on the trusted and popular Catholic Update newsletter, the Catholic Update Guide to the Bible provides a simple, down-to-earth explanation of the Bible, and how it can impact the faith life of Catholics. You will begin to view the Bible as a library and learn a practical approach to discovering its stories and mining its wisdom. Questions for reflection after each chapter.
The most sacred book in our tradition is the Bible, the story of God's relationship with humankind from the beginning of creation through the full revelation of the divine self in Jesus and the promise of his presence for all time in and through the life of the Church. The Catholic Update Guide to the Bible describes what the Bible is, how the Old Testament and New Testaments are organized, why the Church approaches the Bible as it does, and what are the key elements and some key figures in the sacred Scriptures.
