Abide

Keeping Vigil with the Word of God

Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB

Additional Formats AvailableAbide (eBook) - $14.99 In the Gospel of John Jesus directs us, "Abide in me, as I abide in you." This book is an invitation to make the Word of God your home through the practice of lectio divina. Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB, encourages you to turn the words of Scripture over in your heart as a plow turns over the soil to welcome the seed. In these scriptural meditations, the piercing reflective questions and personal prayers lead the reader into a deeper relationship with the Divine. Aware that drawing near the Word of God requires a special kind of presence, the author invites you to breathe in the Word, wait before the Word, walk through the pages of Scripture as a pilgrim, and, finally, abide in an intimate and transforming communion with God. The format of the book lends itself not only to daily personal prayer and reflection, but to group faith sharing as well. Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB, author of the popular A Tree Full of Angels (HarperCollins) and Seven Sacred Pauses (Ave Maria), is well known for her creative spiritual writings and retreat ministry. She is also a regular columnist for Stepping Stones, the Little Rock Scripture Study newsletter.

Facilitating For Growth

A Guide for Scripture Study Groups and Small Christian Communities

Barbara J. Fleischer

Great small-group facilitators are not born with their abilities; they develop them. This book will help facilitators in their task of enabling members to participate fully in their group. The content and exercises of each chapter present practical information and methods to help facilitators deepen their knowledge of their role and hone their skills in group facilitation. The first eight chapters cover various aspects of facilitation: the role of the facilitator; getting started; communication basics—expressive skills and listening skills; integrating our diversity; tuning into group life; and group transitions. Each chapter begins with 'warm-up exercises' consisting of questions and assignments designed to help readers draw from their own experience as they work with the written material presented in each chapter. The rest of the book outlines eight flexibly formatted, ninety-minute workshop (or individual) sessions corresponding to the eight topics introduced previously. Includes exercises for practicing and assessing skills acquired in each session.

Choosing a Bible Translation

John J. Pilch

'Which Bible translation is the best to use or to buy?' 'Which does the Church recommend?' In Choosing a Bible Translation, John Pilch discusses two kinds of Bible translations: word-for-word (literal or formal correspondence), and meaning-for-meaning (literary or dynamic equivalence) and comments on the merits of each for the needs of Bible readers. Pilch also emphasizes some challenges that translators of the biblical texts face such as the use of inclusive language, social systems, textual variants, and sensitivity to cultural awareness. He provides readers with a host of resources for choosing Bibles on computer software, obtaining electronic copies of translations, and for locating translations on the Internet. John J. Pilch, PhD, teaches Scripture at Georgetown University, Washington, DC. He is the author of The Cultural Dictionary of the Bible; the three-volume series The Cultural World of Jesus Sunday by Sunday: Cycles A, B, C; Galatians and Romans in the Collegeville Bible Commentary series; and articles in The Modern Catholic Encyclopedia, The Collegeville Pastoral Dictionary of Biblical Theology, and The Bible Today, all published by The Liturgical Press.

The Four Gospels

Catholic Personal Study Edition

The more we understand the four gospels—the distinct narrative and theological emphasis of each evangelist, the unique portrait of Jesus that each presents—the better we come to know Jesus. This knowledge, of course, is much more than an intellectual awareness or knowing about someone. When we enter into the gospels, we come to truly know Jesus the Christ in an intimate way. Through this volume readers will become familiar with the world in which Jesus lived, the cultural customs, the important geographic locations, the biblical terms familiar to first-century Christians but foreign to a contemporary audience. In addition to charts, maps, and photos, this study of the gospels provides an excellent Catholic perspective, answering such questions as: How is the Bible used in the liturgy? What is the connection between the gospels and Catholic social teaching? The Four Gospels lends itself to both quick reference and more in-depth study or meditation. Whether you turn to the volume for personal use or as part of a formal study, you will appreciate the gospels more deeply—and know Jesus more intimately.

The Collegeville Church History Time-Line

Joseph F. Kelly

In this pilgrimage through church history, Joseph Kelly provides a colorful, graphic representation of the events and people of the Roman Catholic Church and puts in hand a wealth of historical information in a clear, easy-to-access format. Adults and young adults will find The Collegeville Church History Time-Line an invaluable tool as they encounter numerous examples of change in the remarkable history of the Catholic church.

He focuses on how the church has developed historically and will continue to do so. The time-line begins in the era of Jesus, leads through a history of Christianity including Constantine's conversion in the fourth-century, to the growth of the papacy in the twelfth-century, to Vatican II and the election of John F. Kennedy in the twentieth-century, and ends with the state of the church in the twenty-first century. Twenty-four pages of text explain the eras delineated on the time-line and provide fuller details regarding important people and events. Joseph F. Kelly, PhD, is professor of religious studies at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Ohio. He is the author of The World of the Early Christians, The Problem of Evil in the Western Tradition, Responding to Evil, and The Origins of Christmas published by Liturgical Press.
