How It Works
The study consists of four main parts: the videos, the workbook, the supplemental materials, and the leader guide. The videos contain the bulk of the content, and can be viewed by themselves for a rich catechetical experience, but they were designed to be accompanied by the workbook. With a space for notes, recommended reading assignments, review questions, discussion questions and review notes, you’ll be fully prepared to absorb the rich content from the videos.
Supplemental readings come from Sacred Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Mike Aquilina’s The Fathers of the Church and Faith of Our Fathers, and Dr. Scott Hahn’s Consuming the Word. Our participant kit offers the workbook, The Fathers of the Church, Faith of Our Fathers, and Consuming the Word.

Journey through Scripture
The Bible and the Church Fathers is part of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology’s dynamic Journey Through Scripture Bible study series.
Journey through Scripture is the St. Paul Center’s flagship Bible study program designed to help ordinary Catholics grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures while deepening their understanding of the riches of our faith. Journey through Scripture takes a holistic approach, looking at the entire Bible and how all of its parts work together.
