Practical Solutions for Sanctifying Everyday Circumstances
by Jeff Cavins and Sarah Christmyer
Looking for an anchor to hold you steady through the storms of life? Want the secret to find joy in the midst of trials? Interested in learning to recognize the source of discord and the way to peace? James, one of the most practical books of the Bible, is a collection of teachings on issues faced by ordinary Christians in everyday life.
In the James: Pearls for Wise Living study, presenter Jeff Cavins shows how the teachings of James speak to those of us who feel torn between the competing demands of this world and our Faith. Meant to help a fledgling Church live out its Faith in the face of persecution and a worldview opposed to the gospel, in the 11-part Jamesprogram, you’ll discover wisdom you can apply to the present.
Components of the James Bible study program include:
- James: Pearls for Wise Living DVD set, which includes eleven 50-minute video presentations.
- James: Pearls for Wise Living Workbook, which contains session summaries, home reading assignments, study questions and responses, and talk notes designed to accompany these videos. It also contains a reference card that will help you to memorize key Scripture verses.
Participants in the James: Pearls for Wise Living program should have a Catholic Bible. We recommend The Great Adventure Catholic Bible, which incorporates the same color-coded Bible Timeline Learning System used throughout Great Adventure Bible studies.

A Biblical Walk Through The Mass at St. Thomas
by Dr. Edward Sri
Based on the Mass, this five-part program will take you on an exciting tour of the Liturgy as it explores the biblical roots of the words and gestures we experience at Mass and explains their profound significance. See, perhaps for the first time, why we say what we say and do what we do every week at Mass. The words and gestures will be seen in a new light, giving new life to the liturgical experience.
The Group Will:
- Learn the biblical background to the words, prayers, and gestures of the Liturgy, all in the context of the revised Mass translation
- Discover how the Mass is a “true re-presentation” of Christ’s redeeming sacrifice on the Cross
- Explore the three key aspects of the Mass as a Sacrifice, Real Presence, and Holy Communion
- Gain helpful insights for getting the most out of every Mass...and much more!
