My junior year of high school religion text book. Written by Scott Hahn, the renowned Franciscan University professor, this book is a useful introduction to how Catholics read and interpret scripture. I didn't appreciate it when I read it back in high school, but now that I'm more devoted to defending my faith, I see what a great tool it really was/is.

This is such a great and thorough Bible study! It will take me a while to finish this book, but I am enjoying reading the Holy Bible from cover to cover right along with it (NAB version).
