Your Invitation To Scripture is the perfect starting point for people who want a solid introduction to the Bible.

More About Kevin Perrotta


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Most of my writing tries to help ordinary people understand the Bible and read it as God's word for today. In the 1990's I worked as editor of a magazine with a title that matches that intention: God's Word Today. Then, into the 2000's, I wrote and edited a series of short books called Six Weeks with the Bible (from Loyola Press). Each of these is designed for six sessions of reflection and discussion on a part of Scripture (for example, the gospel of Luke) or a theme in Scripture (for example, Finding Christ in Your Marriage--I wrote that one with my wife Louise). Lately I have been working as an editor on a series of books called Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (from Baker Academic Press).

Besides writing and editing, I teach Scripture part time. At present I'm teaching an introduction to the Old Testament in Siena Heights University's program in theological studies for the Catholic diocese of Lansing, Michigan. Also, I'm teaching a course on the gospels at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit.

I've led pilgrimages to the Holy Land and am planning to lead another in the fall of 2010.

Church membership: I belong to the Byzantine wing of the Catholic Church.

Family: I have six wonderful children and fifteen absolutely marvelous grandchildren.

Kevin Perrotta currently resides in St. Paul Ann Arbor Ann Arbor A, in the state of Minnesota.
