A Quick Journey Through the Bible

Rachel O’Mara Miller from Our Lady of Lourdes, Haslemere reports on the recent Bible Study Day:
Aidan Cantwell, Social Action Adviser, Fr Peter Andrews and
David Wills, Adult Formation Adviser
"St Dunstan’s, Woking was the venue for an informative and invaluable one-day course entitled, A Quick Journey Through the Bible'.

The course is specifically aimed at those new to Bible Study, who perhaps like me, have never felt capable of actually understanding a lot of their Bible and therefore have never tried to

The course is wonderfully designed concentrating on fourteen narrative books of the Bible (i.e. not all of them) and the twelve major time periods of salvation history. We discovered all the major people, places, events and themes of the Bible. We also studied the six covenants God made with humanity, leading to the establishment of the Catholic Church.

The Student Workbook and Bible Timeline Chart, which you take away with you, proves an invaluable tool to the novice, as you begin to study your bible on your own, it is, if you like, a fools guide to help you as the story develops, enabling you to know what to look for and who to concentrate on. The Timeline specifically is really useful before Mass providing reference to which period of history the readings are from and their reference.

For me, this course was the best 7 hours I have spent in a long time, and I would strongly recommend it as I now having the tools to begin a 90 Day Bible Study programme at home."

If this has whetted your appetite then additional courses are coming up in Redhill and Arundel in April and you can find out information on the diocesan website.
