Reviews - What do customers think about 150 Bible Verses Every Catholic Should Know?
Good choice for apologetics May 20, 2010
I like this book, it has helped me understand how to talk about my faith and where the Church teachings orginated in the Bible. It is well written in a very logical manner and speaks sensitively and thoughtfully. It reads like a scholarly journal more than a preachy diatribe and I appreciate that. I believe that someone who wants to know more about why the Catholic church does what it does and believes what it believes will find this an enlightening and engaging book.
Excellent Content, Excellent Price May 19, 2010
Excellent Content, Excellent Price Catholics tend to be less knowledgable about the Bible than other Christians. This book helps to give a quick overview of verses that are useful in most instances.
The price is lower than that quoted elsewhere, so it's a doubly valuable purchase. The fact that it was received in just days made it even more satisfactory.
Bible Reference Book Jan 7, 2010
This is another excellent book from Patrick Madrid. It is a very easy read. The material is divided by subject which makes it an excellent reference book for Catholics AND non-Catholics.
Great for use in defending the faith. Nov 8, 2009
This is a great addition to a Catholic's library. Having listened to Patrick Madrid speak in person in our diocese previously, I purchased this book without hesitation. I was not disappointed.
great gift book Sep 20, 2009
150 Bible Verses Every Catholic Should Know is a book for any Catholic that wants to know more about the Bible and the Catholic Faith. Patrick Madrid has broken the book into chapters including such important topics as the Sacraments, the Communion of Saints and the sanctity of human life. Each chapter highlights about a dozen passages from Scripture and how they relate to the topic, our faith and our lives.
I was very excited to receive this book for reading and reviewing as I have met Patrick Madrid in person (he came to our military installation in Seoul, South Korea) and loved hearing him speak. This book is not what I thought it would be. I was expecting 150 verses but Patrick provides us with 150 passages (much more than I anticipated). I was also expecting a work of apologetics but Patrick admits himself this is not the purpose - his hope is to introduce us to a wide variety of Scripture, provide verses that will answer questions and help us to deepen our knowledge of and love for Jesus Christ. I think this book would make a great devotional during Advent or Lent - each day focusing on a few passages and maybe even using the lectio divina approach. I also think this book would make a great gift for RCIA candidates or older teens in Confirmation class.
