Description

This book by Dr. Scott Hahn presents a Catholic approach to Scripture, highlighting the theme of covenant. Tracing a path through salvation history, the book explains the various books of the Bible and the importance of each event in salvation history. Understanding the Scriptures will provide an understanding of Sacred Scripture so critical to the Catholic Faith. The Didache Complete Course Series is a series of four high school textbooks, teacher''s manuals, student workbooks, and teacher''s answer guides published by Midwest Theological Forum. Each title spans one academic year. As of 2009, they were being used in about one-third Catholic high schools. This textbook is published with ecclesiastical approval from the Archdiocese of Chicago, and it has been granted conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church by the USCCB Subcommittee on the Catechism.

This textbook gives an excellent overview of the entire bible, and the best explanation of Revelation In five pages or fewer that I have ever seen. Scott Hahn and others from Franciscan University also have more in-depth treatises of individual books in the Bible, but for my college-level class on Understanding the Scriptures, our professor hit a home run having this as our main text to round out the Bible and Catechism (tons of quotes which are found in Hahn''s book). The maps helped me figure out where on earth all this was happening (I have yet to visit the holy land), and the pictures make this college class much more engaging and beautiful. Our class reads three chapters per week, then read approx ten bible passages mentioned by Hahn in those chapters, and then we are to go deeper with one of the passages, lectio-divine style. This book helps us link OT stories with NT ones. That is so vital, because otherwise you end up thinking the Bible is merely a bunch of random stories. I ended up really getting into Maccabees, Hosea, Revelation, and Acts of the Apostles much more than I ever have. And you come away from it all seeing that the Bible, put together to ensure all the Catholic masses on earth were reading and teaching the same thing, is a big love letter from our Lord.

I must have misunderstood the word "Complete" when the description says including Teacher''s Manuals and covers four years. I expected this book to be all four years with teacher''s manual. It''s not. It''s a textbook for ONE year (semester) and no teachers manual. I also bought the Student Workbook, again believing it was four years in one.

I gave it one star because I haven''t done any reading yet, but the title page through the end a Chapter 1 are bumpy like the pages had gotten wet. I will update this once I''ve had a chance to start reading.

UPDATE: I am returning this and have ordered the paperback version, which is a lot cheaper.

This book is absolutely beautiful. Each chapter is concise and easy to read. Very helpful to have when reading the Bible. Makes the scripture easier to understand. There are beautiful tables, maps, and short stories. I highly recommend it, already told my sister so that she can buy one too. It is a keeper, to keep in my library, for personal reference and for others to peruse to spark their interest as well. There are 14 chapters devoted to the OT and 13 chapters devoted to the NT. Chapter examples: The OT, The Patriarchs, The World of the NT, The Catholic Church in Scripture, The e End of History, How to Read the Bible, and more. Buy this book, you will not regret it. I finally found a book to help me with my independent Bible study, if that is what you are seeking it is a must buy. Good luck with your studies!

This is a thorough study on Scripture. It has plenty of illustrations, notes and charts to help clarify and unify the Bible. It is a great book for someone who really wants to tackle the whole Bible but doesn''t know where to start. However, the author is so knowledgeable on all he teaches in this book, even a serious student of the Bible will find it contains information that will enlighten them.

The back of the book indicates that this is just one in a series. It is meant for a high school student but my 8th grade daughter could follow along well. My husband, who loves history, immediately fell in love with its charts, maps and historical facts. I loved the condensed Scripture which the author includes to back up or set the stage for whatever the topic is being discussed. It is not a study Bible, but a study of the Bible.

I purchased this book as the text book for my theology class. I have looked at many scripture teaching books, but none even comes close to this book. This is a fantastic companion teaching book for the Bible. It explains the pertinent passages as well as giving background on Church Fathers'' thinking, citing exegetes and secular scholars. It even cites the Catechism codes where applicable.

This text is written so that anyone, not just theology majors, can understand and learn a greater appreciation of the Bible. This book is used in adult formation and RCIA classes as well. It would be excellent for any Bible study group. **Make sure you get the STUDENT edition, and not the teacher''s.**

Its only con is that it does not have ancient Jewish customs and culture or society in general explanations so that we, some 2000 - 10,000 years post hence, can understand the context of the actions and incidents.
***Pick up Nelson''s New Illustrated Bible Manners And Customs- How The People Of The Bible Really Lived by Howard Vos, for that type of information.***

As I said, and indispensable book that will be useful for the rest of my studies and beyond.

For years,I wanted to have a Bible study that was deep,thoughtprovoking and Biblical from a Roman Catholic perspective. I had known about Scott Hahn for a while but,until I stumbled upon this Bible study,I had no idea this Catholic Bible study series(and there are a series of topics covered(in each volume)in as detailed a manner as you could imagine.Because,it is so detailed-30 chapters,over 500 pages,you will have to take your time going through it-and you should anyway. It is going through a college course on an overview of the Bible. You will learn so much about how Scripture came to be,and its impact on the life of the Church,to name just a couple of things you will learn as you go through the Study.

This book is full of beauty, Scripture and teaching. It was the companion volume to a podcast Bible Study ([...]) using the same chapters by Carlton Weber and I decided for my Lenten Observance during the Forty Days to read and study the Old Testament, as St Augustine told us, the New Testament ''lies hidden in the Old and the Old is revealed in the new''.The whole book is used as a text book for what people have called ''the Best Bible Study on the web''. The depth of scholarship has transformed my understanding of Scripture, I know about the Covenants with Abraham, Noah and David and also in blue type the Catechism commmentary explaining and linking with the new.For example the story of the slavery of Joseph is given the Title ''God Turns Evil into an Instrument of Salvation'' explaining how he saved his people and his own family from starvation.Natural Law, the Institution of the Jewish priesthood and how Catholicism grows out of early Jewish context. The podcast really made a great deal of it even clearer. The book with its full colour illustrations of beautiful pictures really adds to the joy of owning it.There are pictures of ancient scriptures in beautiful lettering, and psalms written out in full. The Covenants (Covenant I learned was the Hebrew equivalent of ''Testamentum''(latin) from which we get ''Testament''.These Covenants are studied in full, so we can see what Christ was to be. David was given a DYNASTY, a KINGDOM ,the King is given the title of Dod''s adopted son, when annointed, Covenant unlimited in time and space, Jerusalem to be the centre of the world spiritually,the Temple would be the architectural sign of the Covenant and the literature of the Books of Wisdom were to be the new Torah.David''s mother becomes the Great lady and important figure in the Kingdom, a prime minister, with the Office of the Keys is a permanent feature of the King and the Thank Offering of Bread and Wine becomes the main liturgy celebrated at the temple. This is an example of the study of the book, which draws exactly on David, his birthplace in Bethlehem, to point us to the New Testament, which later refers back to the Old. There are colourful maps explaining the journeys of the early Nomadic people.It , explains the political background and upheavals etc with approximate BC dates, the meanings of the names (Elijah means ''The Lord is my God''for example ,and keeps as its main theme, God trying to keep his people away from idolatry. The Explanation of the plagues is very interesting, it is like plumbing a mine of meaning which made it all very interesting, in stead of boring and picks out the important themes.I did not know that the Greek word for ''overshadow'' only appears twice in the Bible. The first time was when the Holy Spirit descended and entered into the Tabernacle containing the Ark of tthe Covenant and took residence there, the second time when, as the Angel Gabriel had told Mary the Holy Spirit would ''overshadow'' her and she would producce the a child who would be God, in the second person of the Trinity, making her womb another Tabernacle veiling the face of God.In fact the Book of Joh in the Greek, chapter 1 says''he came down from heaven and was ''tabernacled'' amongst us in the Greek language in which it was written. ''Dwellt'' is only a poor Engllish translation. Scott Hahn ([...])is a former Protestant who founded the St Paul Centre for Biblical Theology. He is a sought after speaker and teaches at the Franciscan University of Steubenville , lectures, speaks and also leads pilgrimages to the Holy Land.The book is a gem. I was put off by the price, but having received it found it to be that rare thing an heirloom and a great joy and source of deep, deep knowledge about Scripture.

What a joy this book is. It is simply wonderful. The Bible is clearly explained and what makes it so good is that it relates clearly to the tradition of the church. Writtend primarily for Roman Catholics, nonetheless it is the most throrough yet clear book on Scripture that I have read. At the end of each section there is a questionnaire which is helpful in ensuring one grasps the full meaning of that piece of Scripture. The book itself is beautifully illustrated and so impressed me that, having bought a used copy, I am minded to buy the most expensive version. Scott Hahn, the editor, has a very simple and thorough method of teaching. A former Protestant and now Catholic he is able to draw on his experience of both tradition of the Faith. Would recommend this book as a present
