The Come and See: Catholic Bible Study series presents the rich heritage of the Catholic faith in clear and simple language. With its practical direction for leaders, easy-to-use workbook format, and appealing design, this Bible study series is ideal for use in the classroom, home study, or parish catechesis.
Written by the experts in language, Scripture, adult education, and pastoral application, these volumes bring practical insight and exegetical prowess right to your fingertips. Originally developed to fill a perceived void in Bible scholarship in the Catholic laity, this series digs into Scripture, explores what Catholic scholars, doctors, and saints have said, and synthesizes pastoral and practical advice that anyone can use. This series meets the need of church small groups, family Bible study, and the individual’s curious appetite for Bible scholarship.
The Logos edition brings you more. With references to the Bible and Catechism appearing on mouseover, you can easily read source material to engage further with the subject matter. All cross-references are tagged to other resources in your library, you can easily connect with citations to the saints, popes, and doctors of the church. Enrich your Bible study and broaden your knowledge of Scripture as you explore these commentaries like never before through Logos.
The material is well done and offers a structured and integrated approach, with thoughtful questions designed to expand the knowledge and deepen the faith of the participants. The curriculum references the Catechism of the Catholic Church, thereby enhancing the participant’s scope of knowledge regarding the faith. This could be used effectively for those in need of evangelization and faith formation.
