Description: A simple tool for a first reading of the Bible that answers the first questions posed by the reader who has little familiarity with the Bible and helps with a critical reading of the Bible.

Father Ska SJ explains the origins of the Old Testament, from the Pentateuch through the Historical Books that tell the story of the people of Israel as they go from conquest in the Book of Joshua to the establishment and history of their kingdom, to the Exile, and through the writings of the prophets. The Wisdom books, Psalms, and the Song of Songs are also covered.

This basic survey will help new readers to see the books of the Old Testament in context and thus avoid the problems that arise when the text is taken literally.
