Making Time for Scripture Study in Your
Daily Personal Study
Spend about 20 minutes a day prayerfully reading and reflecting on a
section of Scripture. Questions in the Study Guide direct the
reflection, while the commentary provides solid Catholic scholarship
that leads to deeper understanding.
Weekly Small-Group Sharing
Gather weekly in groups of eight to twelve to pray and to share your
responses to the study questions. Trained small-group facilitators
encourage the sharing of personal thoughts and experiences in an
atmosphere of openness and trust.
Listen to a brief lecture that follows the small-group discussion.
The lectures develop and clarify the themes of the lesson and may be
delivered by local speakers or by using audio- or video-taped
Prayer is the most essential of the elements. In addition to daily
personal prayer, learn to use Conversational Prayer, a simple,
effective method of prayer used in the small group. A source of
unity, support, and guidance, prayer is the key to the success of
your Bible study.
