2015 marks the tenth anniversary of the St. Paul Center’s Journey Through Scripture Bible Study Program in Catholic parishes. Over the past decade, the Program has grown to become one of the most popular of its kind in the country, with each of the six studies helping Catholics discover the connections between the Old and New Testaments, the Bible and the Liturgy, and the sacraments and everyday life.
Across the country, we’ve trained thousands of people to lead these life-changing studies. “Genesis to Jesus,” “The Bible and the Mass,” “The Bible and the Virgin Mary,” “The Bible and the Sacraments,” “The Bible and the Church Fathers,” and “The Bible and Prayer” have been offered from coast to coast in parishes, schools, homes, prisons, and even a Protestant church.
Soon, we’ll also begin offering these studies on DVD. In just a few weeks, “The Bible and the Virgin Mary” will be available at JourneyThroughScripture.com.
This will make it possible for the studies to reach far more people than we ever could through individual presentations alone.
Here’s just a sampling of what we’re hearing from those who’ve recently gone through one of the Bible studies or our Presenter Training Program.
I never realized how important the Mass was until now.
It is wonderful—a good blend of nourishment for the brain and the soul.
This helped me see how very “user-friendly” the Bible really is. I am no longer afraid
to read, research, and talk about it thanks to this presentation.
This study has provided me with great information for future homilies.
As new Catholics, we find this right up there with the best
Protestant materials, and I’ve been teaching adults all my life!
Every person should hear this study. What an evangelizing tool!
This program is genius. It is an easy approach to opening up
the Word of God—extremely well thought out and easy to apply.
This brought me into a closer relationship with the Trinity.
This glimpse of the story of salvation history made me hunger and thirst for more.
This actually exceeded my expectations. I can’t wait to get the green light to go
forward and present this in my parish.
Over the past ten years, the St. Paul Center has not only trained Catholics from all fifty states to lead the Journey Through Scripture Bible studies. We’ve also trained presenters from more than a dozen countries. Thus far, Journey Through Scripture has been presented in:
