Finding Your Bible: A Catholic's Guide
by Timothy Schehr

Many Catholics have a renewed interest in studying the Bible and are actively participating in either group or individual scripture studies. This book is an interesting companion to scripture study, moving well beyond the initial question of which version to study and offering new and fresh perspectives on how, why and what to study. Designed for group use, each of the book's nine chapters concludes with a series of interesting reflection questions. If you are interested in Bible study, but not part of an organized group, this book might also be a helpful launching point. It offers a fresh perspective and several helpful hints, as well as additional print and internet resources for scripture study.

God's Library: A Catholic Introduction to the World's Greatest Book
by Joe Paprocki

A unique approach to reading the Bible for the millions of Catholics who don't know where to begin.  Joe Paprocki, a veteran catechist and Bible authority, guides readers into a basic understanding of Gods Library - the collection of seventy-three books that Catholics regard as the definitive written revelation of God.

Twelve Strong Women of God: Biblical Models for Today

Stories of women larger than life, yet who were vulnerable and in need of God's loving aid--these are the stories you'll find in Twelve Strong Women of God: Biblical Models for Today. Both women and men who read these stories will recognize some of the challenges they face in their own lives. They can take courage from the example of the biblical heroines Marci Alborghetti writes about in such an insightful and easy-to-read style. Reflect on the heroism of Miriam and of the Pharaoh's daughter in protecting Moses, the future leader of Israel. Admire the struggle of Deborah to carry out her role as judge at a time when Israel was unfaithful to God and men dominated the culture. Consider the loyalty of Ruth in following her mother-in- law to a strange land where the people worshipped a different God, and where they had to rely on providence for their home and food. The first person narrative brings these figures even more fully to life and closer to our own life situations. It enables us to connect with these women in a very personal way and find answers and direction for the challenges we face. Twelve Strong Women of God is an invaluable resource for everyone who would like to know more about the women in the Bible and how they can be models for us today.

Life After Sunday

“When I was a young mother, I longed for friendships with other women who—like me—were searching for a deeper experience of human life. I had no leadership experience, just a desire for more…! So, I asked my pastor to put an announcement in the bulletin to see if anyone was interested in forming a small group. Ten years later, we still gather regularly. As Christ draws us closer to himself, our families and each other, we continue to grow as women, spouses, mothers, daughters and friends. What a glorious gift these women have been to my life!”

–Mary Beth Newkumet, editor of Life After Sunday

When people gather together to share a meal, enjoy each other's company and honestly discuss the most important things about human life, something beautiful always happens.…

Life After Sunday offers fresh discussion materials for Mothers’ Groups on subjects like Beauty, Gift, Freedom, Body, Risk and Security. Small group discussion packages are also available for New Catholics and Stewardship groups. Or, try our premier three-part series, “The Intimate Path,” perfect for established groups interested in exploring how the path to the most amazing, fully human life is the path of those who have fallen deeply in love with Jesus Christ.

Life After Sunday can be ordered over the web using Visa or Mastercard and either immediately downloaded as an electronic file or received by mail in print format.

Ignatius Study Bible Series by Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch

Click on each title below for additional information  
Reading the Bible in a way that is as old as Scripture itself, Mark Shea takes us on a "fly-over" of the biblical story from Genesis to Revelation. He shows you how to explore the literal, allegorical, moral and anagogical senses of Scripture. Whether you have been studying Scripture for years, or are encountering it for the very first time, "Making Senses Out of Scripture" is an invaluable tool that will help you see biblical revelation afresh, as Christians have done for 2000 years.

Evangelical Protestants sometimes accuse Catholics of basing important doctrines on extrabiblical sources. Now Catholics will have a ready rejoinder: Patrick Madrid's Where Is That in the Bible? informs readers of the biblical origins of Catholic doctrines such as priestly celibacy, veneration of Mary and the saints, mortal and venial sins, and purgatory. While the tone is sometimes strident, the information is clear and conveniently organized by topic.
