Reviews - What do customers think about The Bible from Scratch Catholic Edition?

If the Bible seems like mysterious territory  Jan 6, 2008
For many people, the Bible is rather intimidating as a great unknown, sort of like North America before Lewis and Clark. This book gives a quick tour with enough background and details that people can have a picture of what they are dealing with, and be prepared for further study. I have given out twenty copies to friends so far, and people have been enthusiastic.
OUTSTANDING! Finally I understand wht the Bible is all about!  Sep 10, 2007
Sadly, 8 years in Catholic school didn't teach me even a fraction of what this book did about the contents of the Bible. This book explained the different sections and books in plain terms. Now I am actually inspired to read the Bible and learn what it's all about. The only additional thing I would have loved to see is why/how the different religions formed (Judaism, Catholic, Muslim, Protestants, etc). Thank You.
Enthusiastically recommended  Dec 9, 2006
Written by Simon Jenkins, the founder of online community and "magazine of Christian unrest", The Bible from Scratch: Catholic Edition is a condensed, simplified run-through of what the Bible has to say in plain-terms English. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations add a visual dimension to the stories of the ancestors, saints, prophets, and historical figures related in the Bible. Covering both Old and New Testaments, The Bible from Scratch is accessible to readers of all ages, backgrounds, and faiths, even though as its title indicates, it presents a Catholic point of view. The Bible from Scratch is essentially a Cliff Notes version of the Bible with a small dose of cartoon humor added for good measure, enthusiastically recommended especially for anyone brand new to Biblical studies and in need of an easy-to-grasp overview.
Excellent Overview  Nov 5, 2005
This book is a great overview of the Bible, full of information and humour in equal portions. The best starting out guide to the reader who wants to figure out how the various parts of the Bible fit together and fit within history.
