Overview

Based on the Revised Standard Version - Second Catholic Edition, this 14th volume in the popular Bible study series leads readers through a penetrating study of the Book of Genesis using the biblical text itself and the Church's own guidelines for understanding the Bible. Ample notes accompany each page, providing fresh insights and commentary by renowned Bible scholars Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch, as well as time-tested interpretations from the Fathers of the Church. They provide rich historical, cultural, geographical or theological information pertinent to the Old Testament book—information that bridges the distance between the biblical world and our own.

The Ignatius Study Bible also includes Topical Essays, Word Studies and Charts. The Topical Essays explore the major themes of Genesis, often relating them to the teachings of the Church. The Word Studies explain the background to important Bible terms, while the Charts summarize crucial biblical information "at a glance". Each page includes an easy-to-use Cross-Reference Section. Study Questions are provided for each chapter that can deepen your personal study of God's Word. There is also an introductory essay covering questions of authorship, date, destination, structure and themes. Also included is an outline of Genesis as well as several maps.

    Hahn and Mitch do it again!

    As with the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible New Testament Second Catholic Edition RSV, this first book of the Pentateuch has much more meaning when the commentary is read along with the Sacred Scripture of Genesis. In addition to the footnotes, all of the features that make the NT edition great are included - Word Study, Maps, and Topical Essays. The addition of Study Questions is a nice touch for a "study Bible" as well. I will look forward to their subsequent OT Books.

    How It All Fits Together

    Scott Hahn says it is hard to read the Bible straight through and Bibles studies classes are too academic. That is why he wrote this book Bible Basics for Catholics. It is a succinct and well structured introduction to the Bible. This is a "big picture" introduction to the Bible that will help you to decide what part of the Bible you may want to dive into. The stated goal of this book is to show "how it all fits together."
    The book is divided into six covenants that God made with us. The first was associated Adam then Noah, Abraham, Moses, David and finally Jesus. It begins with the meaning of life. The author points out that it is not the meaning that Author Dent discovered in Douglas Adam's Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Good opening for people like me who are philosophy/science fiction buffs. Then the author, John Bergsma, explains the Bible in terms of the covenants God made with us. He uses simple down to Earth words and clever drawings to simplify what to most people are difficult concepts.
    The book is structured around the covenants God made with humankind and how the Bible reflects their fulfillment. It begins with the covenant with Adam then Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, the Prophets and finally the Eucharistic Covenant. To sum it up, Adam is described as having five roles: Son of God, King, Priest, Prophet and Bridegroom. Jesus too had all five roles and so he began a new chapter in the history of humankind.
    I read this book on my Nook. The resolution of the reader is not very good but because of the simplicity of the illustrations the book works well on the Nook.
    The author strives to show the Bible's unity. He does succeed in this engaging overview of our faith as expressed through the covenants that God made with us and revealed in the Bible.
