Description

This is the second book in Liguori's 101 Series, and it takes the reader on a journey through the history of the Bible. The first section of the book focuses on how the Bible came to be, understanding how the Bible was written, and a Catholic approach to Bible study. The second section deals with reading the Old Testament, recognizing the power of the prophet's words, and unraveling the secrets of apocalyptic literature. Understanding the New Testament is the topic of the third section, which explores the world into which Jesus was born, the world of Paul and his letters, and the Book of Revelations. The final section is the postscript, which explains the gospels the Church left behind.

Back cover copy

Scripture 101 introduces key elements to understanding the Bible. The first section explores some of the traditional preconceptions that we have about the Bible itself. The next two sections build and expand on this foundation as the author, William J. Parker, focuses on the Old and New Testaments respectively. When did Moses write the history of God's people, and why are some stories repeated, giving different names for God along the way? Father Parker offers clues to the answers of these and other questions. In Scripture 101, you will enter the culture that surrounded the birth of Jesus and learn to explore the world from which Jesus drew his stories of building the kingdom of God. The chapters can be read in any order or in the sequence in which they appear. Every chapter includes resources for reflection and study questions for group discussion or individual study.
