The Book of Job: A Bible Study Course
Tuesday, January 14th - Tuesday, March 3rd at 9:30 am after daily Mass in the St. Benedict room of the parish center after.
Rediscover one of the Bible’s most important books. With a leading Scripture scholar as your guide, you will gain powerful insights into one of life’s most vexing questions.
The Book of Job is a powerful and ultimately life-affirming book. But the text—one of the Bible’s oldest—can sometimes seem puzzling to modern audiences. Now, The Book of Job: A Bible Study Course gives you an insightful look into how Job can transform your faith today.
You will join Prof. Kathleen O’Connor, Ph.D., the former president of the Catholic Biblical Association of America, in exploring the vital wisdom of the Book of Job. A combination of beautiful poetry, classic storytelling, and profound theology, the Book of Job is brimming with insights. Through 15 video lectures, you will take a closer look at the fascinating questions it poses.

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.
If you have questions about the Wednesday evening group or would like to reserve a study guide, please contact Paul Miron.
