The five biblical books treated in this volume are stories, i.e., narratives which seek to arouse tension and then resolve it. However, they are more than ancient stories of God and humans. They are our stories as well. They challenge us to uncover the basic human experiences of life and death, success and failure, hope and despair. They urge us to gain new perspectives and regain lost values. - p. 1.

In times of crisis, there always remain the faithful few: men and women who go to great lengths to show mercy and provide hope to those around them and the entire world. With courage and dedication, they attest to life after death and shun the common traps of seeking favor and bending to human will. The books of the Bible explored in this volume tell the stories of such people, most of which occurred well after the Babylonian exile. Though not included in every translation, the characters and events are well known throughout religious history. Part of the Liguori Catholic Bible Study, a series of 21 books introducing each book of the Bible, providing insight into the sacred words of antiquity and inviting you to discover the living Word and its impact on our daily lives. The narrative, study questions, reflections, key notes, prayers, and an introduction to the spiritual practice of lectio divina will deepen your understanding of Scripture.

Jonah Tobit Judith


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

These three colorful books offer gripping stories of how God shows his mercy and accomplishes his will through human actions. Jonah is a reluctant prophet who must be swallowed by a whale before he delivers his message to Israel's ancient enemies at Nineveh that they must repent or face doom. Tobit tells of the trials and tribulations of a family, and the power of prayer as God sends an angel to guide Tobit's son Tobiah on a journey of resolution. In the book of Judith, a simple and courageous widow, rather than an army, saves her people from destruction by a powerful enemy. This rich commentary explores the significant themes of each book, showing that God is intimately involved with the destiny of humankind.
