This volume provides an indispensable introduction to six areas of study: the Old Testament, the New Testament, the person of Jesus, the Church, Christian morality, and the sacraments. It also discusses the formation of the New Testament canon and explores the three distinct sections of the Hebrew Canon: Torah, Prophets, and Writings. This collection provides key texts from some of the most distinguished modern writers in Catholic theology.
