Bible Study Resources

At my recent workshop in the Diocese of Davenport, IA, we talked a lot about Catholic Bible study resources . I often find myself hemming and hawwing about a few different resources and never feeling like I can provide people with a solid overview of Catholic Bible study resources that are available.

Now that’s all changed because of a new Web site I’m happy to tell you about!

It’s called Wisdom Overflowing: Scripture Study Resources for Catholics and it is provided by a friend of mine, Carol Kloss.

Carol provides resources for learning how to select a Bible, beginning Bible study, advancing in Bible study, selecting a Bible study program, and connecting with Catholic publishers for Bible resources. My favorite feature is where Carol provides an overview of a number of Catholic Bible study programs available for use in parishes along with a brief description and critique of each.

Thanks, Carol, for providing this much needed resource!
