The Bible: The Living Word of God, Interactive Edition provides an introduction to the Sacred Scriptures and to the unfolding of salvation history, with a particular focus on Jesus Christ as the fulfillment of salvation history.

Students will have the ability, through the hyperlinks and interactive content in the book, to engage with the Catholic faith and the person of Jesus Christ.

Ayy thats pretty good
Only a critique of preview and description
The title indicates "The Bible" so one would naturally assume this is an interactive version on the Bible. Yet, the summary does not indicate that it includes the entire Bible, but rather appears to be a study guide with links to "sacred scripture." Further, the sample only includes a section on revelation and does not include a chapter list so one could discern whether this book is indeed the Bible or not. If just a study guide, the title is misleading and should be changed. If it is the actual Bible with additional materials, please indicate which version and a better description of materials. As to the sample, I would rather see a copy of a Biblical chapter along with its interactive components to determine whether I would he willing to shell out $20 for this book.
I purchased it on my Mac and want to sync the book on my iPad. But it doesn't show on iPad. So I decided to download it on iPad but it just got stuck.
