OUTSTANDING! Finally I understand wht the Bible is all about! Sept. 10 2007
By Eva Mikola - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sadly, 8 years in Catholic school didn't teach me even a fraction of what this book did about the contents of the Bible. This book explained the different sections and books in plain terms. Now I am actually inspired to read the Bible and learn what it's all about. The only additional thing I would have loved to see is why/how the different religions formed (Judaism, Catholic, Muslim, Protestants, etc). Thank You.

Enthusiastically recommended Dec 9 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Written by Simon Jenkins, the founder of online community and "magazine of Christian unrest" shipoffools.com, The Bible from Scratch: Catholic Edition is a condensed, simplified run-through of what the Bible has to say in plain-terms English. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations add a visual dimension to the stories of the ancestors, saints, prophets, and historical figures related in the Bible. Covering both Old and New Testaments, The Bible from Scratch is accessible to readers of all ages, backgrounds, and faiths, even though as its title indicates, it presents a Catholic point of view. The Bible from Scratch is essentially a Cliff Notes version of the Bible with a small dose of cartoon humor added for good measure, enthusiastically recommended especially for anyone brand new to Biblical studies and in need of an easy-to-grasp overview.

Excellent Overview Nov. 5 2005
By Kiwigoldfish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a great overview of the Bible, full of information and humour in equal portions. The best starting out guide to the reader who wants to figure out how the various parts of the Bible fit together and fit within history.

A good primer for covering the bible. It is easy to read and digest and covers the main points in a "bullet" format.
Catholic Version - awesome! May 25 2013

I wish there were more resources like this! Accurate summary of Biblical books according to the Catholic Tradition...entertaining and funny, without being irreverent. Very non-intimidating for people just getting started in learning about the faith! I gave it to a friend who recently completed RCIA, and I hope he'll find it helpful!
