More About Ignatius Schuster
The Rev. Father Ignatius Schuster, D.D., was a priest and author of the twentieth century. His widely-circulated Illustrated Bible History of the Old and New Testaments, which has been used for years in Catholic schools, was written as a synopsis of sacred Scripture for sixth through eighth grade students. It was originally published circa the mid-1900s by the B. Herder Book Company, Missouri, with the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur. Father Schuster's work was also printed by TAN in 1974.
Reviews - What do customers think about Illustrated Bible History of the Old and New Testaments for the Use of Catholic Schools?
An Excellent Book on Basic Bible History Sep 22, 2005
A special note: Bible History by Ignatius Schuster is based on the Douay Rheims Bible (a Bible based entirely on the Latin Vulgate and Greek Seputuagint) and so instead of reading Messiah, Noah, Zephaniah or the Book of Chronicles it reads the original translation in English that is not anglicized "Messias, Noe, Sophonias, and the Book of Paralipomenon".
The Bible History is an excellent basic history of the Holy Bible that was written over almost 100 years ago and was used in the 1930s and 1940s by Catholic catechism classes.
The Bible History begins from Adam up to the time of Jesus. It does not contain any Modernist error such as that Adam and Eve were not real people, but rather a fable.
The Bible History also helped me understand the Bible closer than before. This Bible History book tells how Israel split in to two countries and tells who were the Judges of Israel and why such as Samson (the man seduced by Delilah) and Samuel.
I recommend this Bible History book to children and for adults as well.
