Reviews - What do customers think about Bible History: A Textbook of the Old and New Testaments for Catholic Schools?
Needs to be revised Oct 12, 2009
Pretty dated. Not particularly helpful for young Catholics of this generation. Would like to see some of the difficult issues explained from a biblical perspective such as the status(or lack of) of women and how the church justifies its patriarchy in the 21st century as these are questions that young people are interested in. The 'Things to Know and to do' at the end of each chapter are not going to satisfy today's young men and women. The book needs to be seriously updated from the 1931.
