The Subcommittee on the Catechism, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has found this catechetical text, copyright 2009, to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This in-depth course brings to life the books of the Old Testament, with a full-color student text that covers the most important stories and passages of the Old Testament and guides students as they read the Bible. The one-semester course can be taught to ninth graders but is ideal for tenth- and eleventh-grade students. With emphasis to the context and spiritual meaning of the Old Testament, this text includes an extensive discussion of the Ten Commandments, sidebars featuring prayers in the Old Testament, historical and biblical timelines, review questions, reflective activities, and a full-color design with maps, charts, photos, and artwork help make the Old Testament come alive for students. The third edition features updates to the text that reflect current Scripture scholarship and the cultural experience of today's teens, new illustrations and photos, and a new glossary of biblical terms.
