This is a famous Bible history that was used in Catholic schools for years and is actually the prototype of Bible histories. Containing 182 Chapters covering both the Old and New Testaments, plus Study Questions for each Chapter and 80 classic woodcut illustrations, this book has educated generations of Catholic children from 6th grade through 8th grade-and beyond. Filled with quotes from the Douay-Rheims Bible, Schuster's Bible History conveys the reverence and holiness of the Faith as found in the Holy Bible itself. Here is the Scriptural background which should form the living heritage of every Catholic and without which a person will be ill-equipped to understand much of the meaning contained in the Gospels and Epistles of the New Testament. Bible History by Ignatius Schuster, D.D. gives an excellent synopsis of the story of the Bible.
