A Catholic Introduction to the Bible: The Old Testament
This book gives you a clear and thorough introduction of the Old Testament. It covers everything from the history and composition of the book to it's place in the living tradition. This book is a great reference material and is suitable for everyone, from the laity wanting to learn more about the bible to those with an already extensive biblical background.
This book gives the reader an easy to understand introduction to the books of the Old Testament. It shows their place in the modern lectionary and includes great quotes from scholars and church fathers. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about sacred scripture.
