A Guided Discovery of the Bible

The Bible invites us to explore God’s word and reflect on how we might respond to it. To do this, we need guidance and the right tools for discovery. This practical series of Bible discussion guides offers both in a concise six-week format. Whether focusing on a specific biblical book or exploring a theme that runs throughout the Bible, the guides in this series provide meaningful insights that explain Scripture while helping readers make connections to their own lives. Each guide

•    is faithful to Church teaching and is guided by sound biblical scholarship

•    presents the insights of Church fathers and saints

•    includes questions for discussion and reflection

•    delivers information in a reader-friendly format

•    gives suggestions for prayer that help readers respond to God’s word

•    appeals to beginners as well as to advanced students of the Bible

By reading Scripture, reflecting on its deeper meanings, and incorporating it into our daily life, we can grow not only in our understanding of God’s word, but also in our relationship with God.

Synopsis:

The story of Joseph and his brothers is one of the most popular stories in the book of Genesis—so popular, in fact, that it was made into a Broadway musical! In Genesis 37–50: Joseph the Dreamer, author Kevin Perrotta helps us see why the story of Joseph is so critical to a proper understanding of the book of Genesis, and helps us apply this beloved story to our own lives of faith.

For busy adults who want to study the Bible but don't know where to begin, Six Weeks with the Bible provides an inviting starting point. Each guide is divided into six concise, 90-minute segments that introduce one book of the Bible. All biblical text is printed in the guides, which means no additional study aids are required.
