Getting to Know the Bible: An Introduction to Sacred Scripture for Catholics
This classic overview of the Bible by Father Melvin Farrell has served for years as an introduction for those who want to learn the basics of the Old and New Testaments. It is now published by ACTA Publications in a completely new edition revised by biblical scholar Joseph McHugh.
The reasonable price and clear, accessible style make Getting to Know the Bible the perfect vehicle for beginning parish-wide Bible study. The authors lead the readers through all the major books of the Bible, from Genesis through Revelation, pointing out the importance and meaning of each part of the Scriptures to the whole.
Getting to Know the Bible gives the Catholic perspective on Sacred Scripture, which relies on historical perspective and literary forms rather than a more fundamental approach. All readers can benefit from this celebrated summary of the Bible.
