Reviews - What do customers think about The Collegeville Bible Handbook: Condensed Version of the Collegeville Bible Commentary?
Well written introduction to the Bible Aug 14, 2001
This well written introduction to the Bible is designed for those who are beginning to study the Bible. The book is a condensed version of the Collegeville Bible Commentary which was written by 32 respected Biblical scholars. Each book of the Bible is discussed in an introduction as well as more detailed commentary. The handbook also contains color illustrations, photos, timelines, and maps. Quotes are from the New American Bible. I recommend this book for those who are beginning to study the Bible. The Liturgical Press is also the publisher of a number of more comprehensive books ranging from studies of the entire Bible, the New and Old Testament, and individual books of the Bible; these volumes are recommended for those who want a more comprehensive resource.
