This text is based on the best-selling Didache Series title Understanding the Scriptures, Complete Course Edition, by Dr. Scott Hahn. Presenting an overview of the books of the Bible and their importance to the teachings of the Church, it also discusses how the covenants that God made with his people in the Old Testament are fulfilled by the New Covenant in Jesus Christ. Created in accordance with the USCCB Curriculum Framework for Parish and Youth Ministry Programs, Midwest Theological Forum has adapted its well-known Didache Semester Series textbooks for Catholic High Schools into an easy-to-use format for parishes and home study programs. Each of the eight Didache Parish Series titles is divided into individual weekly lessons intended to be covered over the course of one semester. The full-color, illustrated text provides ample column material, which includes Vocabulary terms, Focus Questions, Guided Exercises, Discussion Questions, and quotes from YouCat.
