Ever wonder what it would be like to encounter an Old Testament prophet? Or to hear one of the apostles preach a sermon? Father Joseph Ponessa and Laurie Watson Manhardt help bring the Word of God as preached by the prophets and apostles home to the modern Christian. Each chapter gives historical background to these books of the Bible to help set the works in historical context. Questions with each chapter encourage us to let the Scriptures lead us to repentance and conversion.
Come and See: Prophets and Apostles will help you hear the Word of God as spoken by Daniel, Nehemiah, Joel, Habbakuk, Micah, the apostle James, and other lesser-known biblical figures—bringing their teachings home to the modern-day Christian.

Laurie W. Manhardt holds a BA in psychology from the University of Detroit and a PhD in education from the University of Michigan. She led an interfaith Bible study for 10 years, which convinced her of the need for quality Catholic Bible study resources. The Come and See: Catholic Bible Study Series is the result.
