Using the tools of authentic modern scholarship, well-known biblical scholar Roland J. Faley has written a book that will be welcome in introductory Bible courses at the university level or in adult education classes in parishes or dioceses. From Genesis to Apocalypse is a one volume introduction to the entire Bible. The author strives to show the unity of both Testaments in treating the major themes as they are carried through, all viewed in the light of contemporary biblical criticism.
In a clear and accessible manner, Faley offers background on the two testaments, calls attention to their oral and literary life, sources, authorship, and the length of time required to put forth the biblical books. Then, he offers insight into the books of the Bible themselves.
This book will be a welcome addition to the field of biblical studies for there is no comparable introduction to the entire Bible for Catholic use on the market.
