Understanding The Scriptures: A Complete Course On Bible Study
Understanding the Scriptures by Dr. Scott Hahn is the second book of The Didache Series. This 548-page, 8 1/2" X 11" book presents salvation history in the context of a Catholic approach to Scripture, highlighting the theme of "Covenant."
The book gives a clear, logical, straightforward explanation of the various parts of the Bible and the importance of each part.
Each chapter concludes with a study section, which includes supplementary reading, important vocabulary terms, study and review questions, practical exercises, and references to relevant selections from the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Understanding the Scriptures is an invaluable tool for those seeking a deeper understanding of Sacred Scripture which is so critical to a strong Catholic faith.
The Didache Series was developed to present the life and doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church in the context of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the teachings of Vatican II as witnessed by the pontificate of John Paul II. The books of The Didache Series are ideal for high school and adult education, RCIA, catechism classes, and home schooling.
The 4 books of The Didache Series (Understanding the Scriptures, Introduction to Catholicism, Our Moral Life in Christ, and The History of the Church) teach the basic doctrinal, scriptural, moral and sacramental tenets of the Church in a way that is comprehensible and accessible, and in conformity with the Catholic Church's teachings according to the Catechism.
The books endeavor to build the reader's conviction that it is possible to live the life of a faithful, committed Catholic, striving for sainthood. The Didache Series relies heavily upon Sacred Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the lives of the saints, the Fathers of the Church, and the teachings of Vatican II as witnessed by the pontificate of Pope John Paul II.
