K
ellmeyer relates that "This book began as a list of notes jotted down to help me remember the chapter and verse for various apologetic arguments. It became a Web site and is now a book."

Who will be helped by this book?

In addition to apologists, Bible Basics is a valuable resource for all Catholics. An ideal tool for catechists, RCIA instructors, directors of religious education, it is designed for anyone who is interested in studying the scriptural evidence for Catholic teaching.

Comprehensive, detailed and easy to read

Bible Basics, a large 8" x 11" book, contains full-text Scriptural references and commentary for nearly 70 essential doctrines of the Catholic Faith, along with essays on how the canon of Scripture was established, a short history of Scripture translations, and a discussion of the New Testament use of the Deuterocanonical books. (See the Table of Contents below for greater detail.)
