    very needed introduction

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 11th 2022

    An excellent book and a very needed introduction to the Bible, not only for the English-speaking audience and not only for those belonging to the Orthodox Church. My only concern is the lack of sufficient references to substantiate the claims made in the text. I understand that the author's intention is not to provide a thesis, but sometimes the reader needs to know where one claim or another comes from, especially regarding a topic that might require us to be apologetic contra heretics.

    Excellent Introduction

    Posted by Christopher on Aug 11th 2022

    An excellent introduction to reading the Bible. It covers the contents and composition of the Bible and gives a guide how to read it in it’s own context and the context of the Church. I hope Father de Young follows up with additional more in-depth volumes.
