$5.99
($6.95)
CONTENT SUMMARY: This classic overview of the Bible by Father Melvin Farrell has served for many 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 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. All readers can benefit from this celebrated summary of the Bible. AUDIENCE: The book's reasonable price and clear, accessible style make it the perfect resource for Bible study for everyday Catholics, as well as for Catholic high schools and introductory college courses. RELATION TO OTHER ACTA PRODUCTS: Getting to Know the Bible can be sold alongside other products by ACTA Publications that focus on a Catholic approach to religious education, including Invitation to Catholicism (0-87946-227-2) and Jesus and His Message (0-87946-211-6). COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS: Among the many books already written that discuss the Bible from a Catholic point of view, this book is unique for two reasons: 1) Its language and style make it accessible to all readers, regardless of their prior religious education; 2) The book will be easily recognized by people familiar with the previous edition.
