2015 UPDATE: Includes a new chapter on the Book of Revelation!
From biblical scholar John Bergsma—two-time Teacher of Year at Franciscan University of Steubenville—comes Bible Basics for Catholics, a fresh, fun, and authentically Catholic introduction to God's revelation in the Bible.
This overview of the Bible is based on Bergsma’s wildly popular introduction to theology course at Franciscan University, where he is a colleague of popular author Scott Hahn. Using the skills that have made him a great teacher, Bergsma combines sound theology, academic expertise, pastoral wisdom, and an endearing playfulness to draw readers into the connection between the great stories of the Bible and salvation in Jesus. Central to the book’s themes are Bergsma’s signature illustrations of key biblical characters, which are simple, yet surprisingly profound and help readers understand complex biblical ideas.
Those looking for a deeper understanding of the Old Testament and its great figures will find this book to be an easily accessible and enlightening resource. Even those who are well-versed in the stories of the Bible will find Bergsma's approach to salvation history to be an attractive new look at old stories.
"A basic, non-intimidating overview of the Bible."
"Even though this is a basic, non-intimidating overview of the Bible, the author is not afraid to deepen our appreciation of Scripture by occasionally introducing some important technical terms and Hebrew and Greek words, always explaining them thoroughly and understandably."
National Catholic Register
