 Post subject: Bible Study
PostPosted: Wed May 04, 2005 12:57 pm 
I've never formally studied the Bible. I am trying to do the daily readings, from the Living Faith booklet. I also just found out about a Bible study group that meets at my parish, and I'm going to join them starting next week. :yes:

Just wondering if there is a resource/book for us, as a study guide, with the correct interpretations of Scripture, for study on one's own :?:

Thanks,
Anna

I recommend the Haydock Douay Rheims Catholic Bible for one of the best English translations and commentaries available.

OUCH :!: That's pretty expensive, :)! I already have the St. Joseph's New American Bible. I'm really just looking for a study guide. Can one buy the guide without the Bible? Thanks, Anna

Here's what our priest uses for beginning studies:

Personally, I've never used it as we use the Ignatius Bible. HTH.

Thanks, Dawn. :) This is a combo Bible with study guide, also. Since I already have a Bible, I just want a good study guide. I found this one online that had 2 good reviews:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... ce&s=books

and this one had no reviews:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... ce&s=books

Since I'm going to join a Bible study group at church next week, I think I'll wait until meeting and talking to these people, also.

Thanks everyone, :D
Anna

I've been collecting the Navarre Bibles as they come out.
We have the Ignatius Bible as well.
The Catechism is a good Bible study aid.
I also have the New Jerusalem, although the footnotes aren't that helpful sometimes.
What I really wanted was a Bible with big margins for notes.
I've been using the e-sword Bibles on the computer - have Douey Rheims which is the only Catholic English Bible he does, the KJV and the Vulgate. You can download commentaries as well but there are no Catholic ones although I find the protestant ones useful if used with care and they also help understand some of the things protestants insist Catholics believe.

Okay I admit it, I am a Bible junkie. We have a house full!

You might try some of these by Scott HaHn He only doing the NT so far, but an excellent series.

This is real good...

Thanks for all the additional recommendations! :D I've made a list, but will wait to see what the study group is using when I go next week. I may end up having to buy an entirely different Bible, let alone a study guide so I can keep up with them. I'm hesitant to spend any more money until I need to. I like the Tan recommendation. It looks like what I'm looking for, I think.

Does it matter which version/edition of the Catholic Bible you have, to use with a separate study guide? Aren't they basically all the same, as far as Bible content, but with just different "extras?" :roll: This is turning out to be a tad confusing... :)! I bought a couple small books about the Catechism, and am using the Seeker's one and reading some of that daily. It doesn't always have Bible references in it. I'll look into a full copy of the Catechism, too.

I really appreciate all the input! :clap:

Anna

There are a few here to look through. I used this along with the protestant bible study guide my group used. Caught a couple of inconsistencies with Catholic teaching that I might not have.

As for the first one with the two good reviews (A CATHOLIC GUIDE TO THE BIBLE, by Father Oscar Lukefahr), you can get a copy for free from the Catholic Home Study Service. http://www.amm.org/chss.htm

Just sign up for that home study class and they'll give you a copy of the book for free. If you can though, try and make a donation. It's only free due to the generosity of others.
