Overview

The How-to Book of the Bible by Karl A. Schultz

Perhaps you know very little about the Bible... or enough to realize there's so much more to discover! Maybe your previous attempts to read the Bible have not been fruitful, and you don't get much out of the readings at Mass.

The How-To Book of the Bible is your key to unlocking this treasure. Unlike other Bible-related books, this one not only introduces you to the Scriptures, but also helps you develop a deep, fulfilling, and lasting bond with the Bible.
