The Bible plays a vital role in the life of the Catholic Church. In fact, we are called to immerse ourselves daily in the Scriptures. But many of us have a hard time fully grasping the meaning and our time spent can tend to be discouraging. The Bible is a collection of writings drafted by an ancient people, in an ancient culture, but Scripture is nothing less than the Living Word of God and it is meant just as much for us today as for those who lived thousands of years ago.
In Walking with God, Tim Gray and Jeff Cavins unpack the central story woven throughout Scripture and present it in an easy-to-read, concise manner. Gray and Cavins take you on a journey through the narrative books of the Bible—the ones that tell the story—and present a panoramic view of God’s glorious plan of salvation. Their expert commentary dives deep into the mysteries of Scripture, unlocking its riches and showing how these inspired words are meant for you today.
Enter into the Scriptures with Walking with God. Witness the fascinating story of our faith unfold and see how you, at this moment in your life, fit into God’s plan for all of humanity.
Nothing captivates the human heart like a good story, and the best story of all is the one authored by God himself in Scripture. With keen insight and a genius for making the complex simple, Gray and Cavins help us see the big picture of God’s Word by guiding us through the depths and compelling details of the biblical narrative. This book is an invaluable guide to the mystery and meaning of Sacred Scripture.

Faced with contentious questions, ancient cultures, and obscure scholarship, it is easy to forget that the Bible is meant to be heard, read, and prayed by all of us. Dr. Tim Gray and Jeff Cavins offer a highly readable overview of the biblical narrative that is very helpful for the average Catholic to explore the wonders of the Bible. They incorporate modern scholarship without being stuffy and ancient wisdom without being obtuse.
