This book is a popular introduction to each of the 73 books of the Bible designed to help the reader grow in the knowledge and love of Gods Word. The introduction to each book includes the time frame and author, the theme, a summary of the contents and some comments about the context in which it was written, the theology of the book, an outline, and a prayer taken from the book. Fr. Baker provides quick access to essential information the daily or occasional reader of sacred scripture should find helpful.
The book may also be of help to more advanced students who wish to refresh their memory of a particular book of the Bible. By carefully reading Inside the Bible one can have a thumbnail summary of each book of the Bible at his fingertips.
Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J., was for many years the editor of Homiletic and Pastoral Review, the premiere magazine for clergy and laity interested in pastoral issues for today's Church. He is the author of Inside the Bible and Fundamentals of Catholicism.
