 Our Description

"A user-friendly guide to the Bible . . . great for any Bible-study group or for personal use." —Spirit & Life

"With a masterful knowledge of the Bible, Fr. Witherup skillfully outlines and summarizes the content of every Biblical book. For those looking for a first introduction to the Bible, and for those seeking a concise summary of its contents, this is the place to begin." —Frank J. Matera, The Andrews-Kelly-Ryan Professor of Biblical Studies, The Catholic University of America

"Ronald Witherup's skills as both scholar and teacher are brought together in this fine work. A very helpful handbook for group or individual Bible study." —Dianne Bergant, professor, Old Testament studies, Chicago Theological Union


An entry-level overview of the Bible, which presupposes no specialized knowledge of the Bible or religion, this accessible guide emphasizes truly experiencing the Bible rather than just studying it. Written in a warm and inviting tone by a prominent biblical scholar, the handbook answers many questions, such as What is the Bible, and how did it come to be? How do you recognize a true prophet? and Which Bible should I choose? Arranged according to the books of the Bible, this comprehensive introduction includes chapters on the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, and the Letters as well as appendices, a glossary, and resources for further study.


Rev. Ronald D. Whitherup is the superior general of the Society of the Priests of Saint Sulpice in Paris, France, and the author of numerous books on the bible, including Biblical Fundamentalism and St. Paul: Called to Conversion.
