Adult Faith Formation Opportunities

A Quick Journey Through the Bible

Many Catholics want to read the Bible because they know it is God’s Word, but they give up because it seems so complicated. Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible helps you get the “big picture” by showing how fourteen narrative books of the Bible tell the complete story from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church. Presenter Jeff Cavins shows you how to read the Bible so that you can actually understand it. Aided by the unique color-coded Bible Timeline® Chart, which arranges the key people, places, and events of Scripture in    chronological order, Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible will help you discover the story of salvation history and understand how you fit into God’s plan. This eight-session study program includes video presentations that explore all twelve time periods of The Bible Timeline Chart. Wednesday evenings in Delaney Hall at 7:00pm for this 8-week course. Starting Wednesday July 10th running until August 28th. Use the link below or scan the QR code with your phone to order the book from Ascension Press (order the book for $25—$30)
