But now popular author and Boston College professor Peter Kreeft has written a clear road map of the Bible, focusing his keen insight and engaging wit on the core message of each book.

Kreeft provides practical guidance for praying the Scriptures every day, allowing you to delve into the messages of Scripture in a manner that will surprise, delight, and reward.

    From page xi: There are thousands of books about The Book. Why another one? First it is for beginners. Second, it is especially (but not exclusively) for Catholics. Third, it is short and simple. It is also designed to be practical. -- The author has succeeded with all four of his goals. The chapters for the the books of the Old testament are typically 6 or 7 pages. Many books are also grouped together into one chapter where it makes sense, for example: 1&2 Samuel, 1&2 Kings, Timothy & Titus. Major classifications of Books also have a chapter, examples: Introductions to: the Old Testament, Gospels, and Paul’s Epistles. This is a perfect summary of the Bible, that highlights key points and verses for each book of the Bible.
