Product Description

For Catholics, merely relying on the Sunday readings to provide a full understanding of the Bible can be unsatisfying. It is only through a deliberate study of the book as a whole that contextual understanding can be reached. The Bible is not one long narrative about God, but rather a collection of smaller books "clustered around a revolving cast of characters who understand themselves to be, in an essential way, the people of God," according the author. This is especially true of the Old Testament, also known as the Hebrew Scriptures. Camille begins by offering readers tips before beginning their study of the Bible, discusses the history behind its writing, then finally moves into a study of all the major books of the Hebrew Scriptures. Each chapter ends with discussion questions and prayer activities to spark reflection.
