Product DescriptionPocket Bible Guide was written to "help Catholics know what the Bible is and to prepare them in some way to open and read it with understanding". It is written in a question and answer format which provides essential teachings of the Church about the Bible. Following the question and answer, an Explanation section gives background for each teaching highlighting important details found in the teaching and trying to place the teaching in its proper perspective. Colored illustrations provide additional clarification and meaning to the answers.
Chapters in the booklet talk about the qualities of the Bible, language and versions, the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, the Catholic Church and the Bible and much more. An appendix in the back suggests methods of Bible reading and another has an abbreviations section. If you are looking to start reading the Bible or are already doing so, Pocket Bible Guide will be a great assistance in getting you started or helping you more easily continue. The guide would be a good resource for parish Bible reading and discussion programs.
