The revised edition of The Old Testament: Our Call to Faith and Justice covers the remarkable journey of God's Chosen People and their journey in Scripture. As with any relationship, the divine-human one described in the Old Testament has dramatic episodes of jealousy and angry disappointment, but also shows moments of moving love, compassion, and forgiveness. The Jewish people forged an intimate relationship with God that was brought to fullness in the coming of God s Son, Jesus Christ. This text also includes a Catholic Handbook for Faith, an appendix section with a wealth of information to help students review material they have covered in other religion courses.

"We chose to use The Old Testament: Our Call to Faith and Justice at Mater Dei High School because it is so well organized and it takes the reader through the Old Testament that touches both the intellect and the spirit. This text enables us to discover with our students the heart of the covenantal message of the Old Testament, which is faith and justice. In addition to the wonderful text, the Teacher's Wraparound Edition and the online resources are outstanding and a definite time-saver for teachers." --Jennifer Dennin, Theology Teacher , Mater Dei High School, Santa Ana, CA
