John Bergsma has demonstrated himself an excellent teacher ! He explains the bible by focusing on the 7 covenants in the bible,starting with the one God made with Adam. For those who have had little to no exposure to the bible-- his book is great place to start. You don't have to be Catholic to appreciate this book. Everyone can benefit. For those who may not know,Bergsma is a former Protestant pastor and now a professor at Franciscan University at Steubenville. It should be said that Bergsma does not cover every nook and cranny of the bible,but he just really keeps the parts he does cover very simple. The illustrations communicate the simplicity of the book. I hope a Spanish version comes out.
