Getting to Know the Old Testament
Number of pages: 32
Every Sunday Catholics hear readings and passages proclaimed from the Old Testament. Yet the books of the Old Testament remain foreign and strange, with stories of peoples and cultures different from our own.
Acclaimed educator Richard Olson breaks open the Old Testament and shares with us the core message of its many books. Informative and insightful, Getting to Know the Old Testament helps readers gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the scriptures that form the Old Testament canon.
Living with Christ introduces the Getting to Know series.
Each book comes with historical background on the scriptures and examines their themes and symbolism.
They are ideal for lectors, catechists and all those seeking a greater understanding of these key books of the Bible.
Richard Olson, M.T.S., serves as vice-principal at Bishop Macdonnell Catholic High School in Guelph, Ontario. He is the author of the bestselling introductory guide to scripture It Began with a Promise (Novalis, 2013).
