Item description for The Old Testament: Our Call To Faith and Justice by Daniel Smith-Christopher...

The Old Testament: Our Call to Faith and Justice offers high school students a comprehensive overview of the major themes, lessons, and people of the Old Testament. It covers the story of salvation from many perspectives including both the Catholic understanding of the scripture and how the original hearers of God's Word understood its meaning. The text shows Jesus prefigured in the Old Testament, especially as Messiah and Savior, and chronicles the role of the Church in interpretation of scripture. It presents the Church as foreshadowed from the beginning of creation and prepared for in a remarkable way through the history of the people of Israel and by means of the Old Covenant. Each chapter includes several special features: Panel activities that help the students foster total learning in hands (service), hearts (prayer), and mind (academic challenges). Review questions for each main section. Several Journal Assignments for deeper thought and reflection. Key vocabulary terms set off in margin panels. A Learn by Doing project for each chapter that provides a longer-term assignment. A Called to Prayer feature offering text from a prayer relevant to the chapter theme.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Old Testament: Our Call To Faith and Justice?

Very well written and contains a wealth of information  Oct 11, 2005
I teach high school religion and decided to use this book as my textbook for the Old Testament. I am extremely happy with the book. It contains an incredible wealth of knowledge, but is still easy enough for high school freshwomen to understand. I am especially impressed with the carefully thought out wording of the book. The wording does not make judgements for the reader, but instead it allows the reader to decide things for herself. Overall, this is a great book for learning about the Old Testament, and it is honest in what it says about the bible, which is very hard to find.
