People of the Covenant: An Invitation to the Old Testament

Dianne Bergant, CSA, Author Sheed & Ward $16.95 (216p) ISBN 978-1-58051-090-5
Ancestors, judges, kings, prophets, priests, wise ones and mysterious figures are the categories of Old Testament characters that Dianne Bergant groups together in People of the Covenant: An Invitation to the Old Testament. (A final category, ""People Who Moved the Tradition Forward,"" includes a rather motley assortment of other folks who don't fit neatly into the above classifications.) Bergant's fine introduction to the Old Testament is essentially a character study more than a narrative history and makes a valuable companion to the Roman Catholic Bible on which it is based. (The Roman Catholic canon includes six more Old Testament books than the Protestant canon.) ( May)
