Study Guides

These study guides were written to provide our participants with some basic background information on the books of the Bible we will study. The guides offer only an overview and are not intended as in-depth commentaries. Understand, too, that the contents reflect my views which may conflict with the views of many scriptural scholars. My views are probably more in keeping with the teachings of Pope Benedict XVI, Scott Hahn, Rusty Reno, and others.

I will add new study guides as I complete them. With luck I'll stay a few weeks ahead of what we're covering in the sessions. - Deacon Dana
