Reviews - What do our customers think?
Academic, but Understandable  Dec 1, 2007
Prof. Kreeft has a gift for making somewhat dry material come alive. He is also great at demonstrating the big themes in the Bible -- the parts that you may miss if you do not have a 'big picture' point of view. He is more academically minded that similar books I have read -- which I like, but it may not be everyone's preference. I plan to read more of his works in the future. FYI... Prof. Kreeft is a Catholic and he does talk about Catholicism from time to time, but this is a book that mainstream Protestants can learn from -- don't be put off by his Catholicism.
 
Guidebook through the Bible  Oct 23, 2007
If I were to take a trip to China I would read about China: where to go, what to see, what is important, what is
China's history, etc. Well, this book guides you through the Bible. What was the purpose of each book. What was the motivation of the writer. This is a mini course in the Bible. Everyone interested in growing in knowlege of the Catholic Bible must read this. Everyone interested in growing in your prayer life MUST read this.
 
Another enlightening work by Prof. Kreeft  Sep 23, 2007
I am using this book as a study guide for reading the Bible in a homeschool high school class. How can anyone argue with the logical, cogent, and humorous ideas of this learned man? His books appeal to the intellect and reason, as well as Faith.

Best Bible handbook  Mar 9, 2007
I have looked at several handbooks of the Bible (Halley's, Ryken's, New Jerome, Hollman, Bowker's) and this one is clearly the best. Because the author (Peter Kreeft of Boston College) is a philosophy professor, he focuses on explaining the IDEAS contained in the bible, which is really what ordinary people are looking for when they study the scriptures.

The text includes messianic interpretation of the Old Testament (the study of how prophets such as Isaiah and Zechariah predicted the life of Christ hundreds of years in advance) while more "critical" bible study materials dismiss or downplay this.

Kreeft includes moral (or "ethical" since he's a philosopher) interpretation of the Bible, such as the occasion when he outlines the cyclical nature of sin in his chapter on Joshua and Judges.

Kreeft also makes use of symbolic (or allegorical) interpretation, and anagogic interpretation (what the Bible is saying about the salvation of souls). The book is clearly supportive of Catholicism, but should be useful to anyone who wants to understand the Bible according to the original intent of the writers (Kreeft supports "traditional authorship" of the scriptures). The book has a very evangelical tone, though some dispensationalists may not like it because Kreeft supports amillennialism and sidesteps the evolution-creation controversy.
 
Get It Now  Aug 9, 2006
I rarely, if ever, make such an urgent plea about a book; but Kreeft has given a panoramic view of the entire Bible brimming with the insight of a man in the grip of a faith that is on fire. For Catholics, the book is great because it covers all the books that we recognize as part of the Old Testament and because the Catholic perspective is evident everywhere. As a graduate student in Biblical Studies, I am grateful for Kreeft's giving me an overview that re-energizes my studies and never lets me forget the forest for the individual trees. Thanks, Prof. Kreeft.
