Reviews - What do customers think about Prophets and Apostles: A "Come and See" Catholic Bible Study (Come and See: Catholic Bible Study)?
A very good study... Nov 3, 2006
My small group selected this book to use as our focus for this year's study. We are about 1/3 through it as I write this. The book is set up in a way that invites a free-flowing discussion, which our small group finds very helpful in faith-sharing. Each chapter has an introduction, and these are tremendously helpful in learning the perspective and context for the book(s) you are studying at the time. There are approximately 20 questions in each chapter, meant to help you think further about the readings. While some questions seem a bit redundant, there are always at least several really thought-provoking ones, and my group tends to concentrate more on these. I recommend this book to anyone wishing to get more knowledge of the prophets and apostles, and wishing to increase their faith.
Excellent Catholic Bible study for new to experienced Apr 19, 2006
I have attended and led various Bible studies for 14 years. For a long time our group couldn't even find a Catholic study, especially one that met the needs of the various levels of experience of the people attending the study. This study is very well done, it suits the experienced and the first timers. It is obedient to the teachings of the church. The study's commentaries are excellent! It gives the Catholic ownership of their faith and educates them in all facets. The study brings into light the Catechism, which I have found to be an undiscovered treasure for most Catholics. It is an awesome experience to see someone who has left the Church or doesn't understand the Church's teachings, come to life and actually become excited about thier faith!
The study addresses the whole person, it allows for the spiritual, the intellectual, and the emotional by providing time for much needed fellowship. I have used these books in small home groups as well as large Parish groups. It works well with both.
An Excellent Catholic Bible Study Resource Oct 29, 2004
This latest installment in the wonderful "Come and See" Catholic Bible Study program by Fr. Jospeh Ponessa and Laurie Watson Manhardt is a comprehensive look at eleven Old Testament prophets, as well as the Epistles of the New Testament. The book's introduction sets the stage for the study, explaining materials necessary, how to get started, and helpful suggestions for starting a group study. The book has equal value for individuals looking to work their way through the Bible study process on their own. Of particular importance in this study is the fact that it emphasizes the role of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Study participants are directed to relevant and appropriate references in the Catechism to compliment their study of scripture. A great resource for groups or individuals!
Religious Education Director recommends Come and See series Aug 24, 2004
Your "Come and See" series is a winner. Its language is simple, clear, consise, not intimidating. Whether you are discovering the Bible for the first time or renewing an old relationship, this particular series is an indispensable guide for the Catholic who wishes to know more about Scripture. In discussing the materials with some of the participants, I can openly say, this is truly a grace-filled read for anyone that would use it.
In all, our facilitators and participants are very pleased with the "Come and See" program and are looking forward to the release of next year's text. I would recommend it without reservation to anyone considering a Scripture Study on the parish level, small group, or for private personal growth.
