The Stories of the Old Testament
A Catholic's Guide
To read and understand the Bible, specifically the Old Testament, is a daunting challenge for most Catholics. Jim Campbell's The Stories of the Old Testament turns this otherwise intimidating task into an eminently achievable and highly enjoyable journey.
Campbell gently leads readers through the central texts, essential stories, and major figures of the Old Testament in 100 carefully selected readings, each designed to be completed in just one sitting. He provides a guide for each reading, and, throughout the book, dozens of short supplemental essays supply the background and commentary needed to properly understand the Bible from Genesis to Malachi.
