Originally published in 1882 in German by Bishop Frederick Justus Knecht, author of A Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture, the Child's Bible History is a classic of children's scriptural catechism. Ideal for students in elementary school, this Bible history goes through each of the books of the Old and New Testament in a way suitable for young children in early grade school.
Nothing is more important for a child than catechism, and hardly anything is more useful to that end than a knowledge of the Scriptures. A favorite of catechists everywhere for this noble purpose, the Child's Bible History belongs in every Catholic grade school and home learning environment.
