This 326-page Catholic high school text begins with a general introduction to the Bible, exposing students to the various languages of the Bible, historical background, the inspiration of the Sacred Writers, and diverse literary styles. Using the Douay-Rheims English version, Fr. Laux provides a very thorough teaching of the Old and New Testaments. Though originally published in 1932, Introduction to the Bible is not only interesting to read but provides students with a solid foundation in Bible study and Catholic teaching.
Father Laux presents all 72 books of the Bible to his students in an engaging manner. By making the reading of Holy Scripture come to life, we can prepare our students with a lifelong love of God's Word. This text has the Imprimatur and the Nihil Obstat. [M. Wittmann]
