From biblical scholar John Bergsma--two-time teacher of the year at the Franciscan University of Steubenville--comes this fresh, fun, and authentically Catholic introduction to the "big picture" of salvation history.
This overview of the Bible is based on Bergsma's wildly popular introduction to theology course (Old Testament and New Testament) at Franciscan University, where he is a colleague of Scott Hahn. Bergsma combines sound theology, academic expertise, pastoral wisdom, and an endearing playfulness to draw readers into the connection between the great stories of the Bible and salvation in Jesus. Central to the book's themes are Bergsma's signature illustrations of key biblical characters, which are deceptively simple but profound.
