Do you want to better understand how salvation history unfolds in the Old and New Testaments?
Whether you are new to reading scripture or have experience in studying the Bible, John Bergsma’s bestselling Bible Basics for Catholics offers an easy-to-read, straightforward, and thorough look at the “big picture” of salvation history.
Combining sound theology, academic expertise, and endearing playfulness, John Bergsma—a popular and award-winning scripture professor—provides a concise and non-intimidating view of God’s covenants with Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and the great kings and prophets of Israel, and culminating with Jesus Christ. Bergsma also looks at what’s to come in the Wedding Feast of the Lamb in the book of Revelation.
Bible Basics for Catholics is perfect for anyone interested in better understanding the Bible, including those with no experience in reading it, RCIA candidates, students in middle school and high school religious education classes, book groups, and adult faith-formation participants. Bergsma’s fun stick figure drawings illustrate key points throughout the book.
