Which study is right for you? These are the differences between four of the best options.

What better topic to study than Sacred Scripture? You can join in these studies on your own at home, with a group of friends, at your parish, or anywhere you like!

These Catholic Bible studies will shed new light on Sacred Scripture, helping you to more deeply understand Christ and His Church. By engaging the mind and feeding the soul, a great Bible study can help you grow ever closer to Christ. 

If you’re not sure which Catholic Bible study is right for you, here’s an explanation of the differences between them.

Living on the Edge of Chaos: Biblical Lessons on Finding Hope in the Face of Fear

This study was designed specifically to address the challenges Christians are facing today. Father John Kartje, Rector of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake, or Mundelein Seminary, leads the four-part series. This study is best for anyone seeking consolation and peace.

Journey through Scripture with the St. Paul Center

Dr. Scott Hahn’s St. Paul Center offers several free online Bible studies, now available as video courses! The most comprehensive is “Genesis to Jesus,” but any one of them will greatly enrich your faith life. These studies are ideal for those seeking a profound “deep dive” into history and theology.

The Great Adventure: Your Journey through the Bible

Available from Ascension Press, these studies make Scripture accessible, thanks to a straightforward narrative style and color-coded visual clues. This easy-to-use program is best for beginners and anyone new to Scripture study.

Lectio: Unveiling Scripture and Tradition

The Augustine Institute produced this video-based study series, with different presenters in a beautiful studio classroom speaking on various topics related to Scripture, Church history, and salvation. This series is best for those who like to learn through watching videos and prefer a “classroom” feel.
