Bible Study 101 Introduction to the Bible

Open the Bible with newcomers and experienced students alike. Both will find much to learn and explore in this helpful introductory study. During our seven weeks together we will look at  practical explanations that will make the Bible more familiar, giving readers a sense of the Bible’s structure, a better understanding of its various themes and writing styles, and insight into how to interpret the Bible within the Catholic tradition. This study also provides direction in how to choose a Bible, how to navigate its contents, and how to get the most out of Bible study. The Little Rock Scripture Study will be our text, it is available at Holy Family Bookstore.
