As Catholics, the Mass is the center of our Faith. We celebrate it every day. We know all the responses. We know all the gestures. But do we know what it all means? In A Biblical Walk Through the Mass, Dr. Edward Sri takes us on a unique tour of the Liturgy. Based on the revised translation of the Mass, this book explores the biblical roots of the words and gestures we experience in the Liturgy and explains their profound significance. This intriguing look at the Mass is sure to renew your faith and deepen your devotion to the Eucharist. This book is used as the text for A Biblical Walk Through the Mass Study Program, but it may also be purchased separately at steep bulk discounts. For those not able to attend a study, this is a perfect resource for catechesis on the deep riches of the Mass.

Mary appears only a few times in the Bible, but those few passages come at crucial moments. Catholics believe that Mary is the ever-virgin Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth. But she also was a human being--a woman who made a journey of faith through various trials and uncertainties and endured her share of suffering. Even with her unique graces and vocation, Mary remains a woman we can relate to and from whom we have much to learn. In Walking with Mary, Edward Sri looks at the crucial passages in the Bible concerning Mary and offers insight about the Blessed Mother's faith and devotion that we can apply in our daily lives. We follow her step-by-step through the New Testament account of her life, reflecting on what the Scriptures tell us about how she responded to the dramatic events unfolding around her. “This book is the fruit of my personal journey of studying Mary through the Scriptures, from her initial calling in Nazareth to her painful experience at the cross,” writes Edward Sri “It is intended to be a highly readable, accessible work that draws on wisdom from the Catholic tradition, recent popes, and biblical scholars of a variety of perspectives and traditions. With the riches of these insights, we will ponder what her journey of faith may have been like in order to draw out spiritual lessons for our own walk with God.” He add, “It is my hope, therefore, that whether you are of a Catholic, Protestant, or other faith background, this book may help you to know, understand, and love Mary more, and that it may inspire you to walk in her footsteps as a faithful disciple of the Lord in your own pilgrimage of faith.”

"In The Real Story, Curtis Martin and Edward Sri break open the Word to examine how all these pieces fit together into one cohesive narrative - a story of how, little by little, God has drawn His people into closer union with Himself, culminating in the coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Church. Through a closer study of the key characters and events in the larger biblical narrative, Martin and Sri show that the Bible ultimately isn't a collection of disjointed stories, but an epic saga of God's infinite love for us and His perfect plan for our salvation since the beginning of time."--From publisher's description.

Praise for The Seven Sorrows Bible Study for Catholics This book is a great integration of theology and every day living. I recommend it for all who want to bring new depth to their spirituality. It is rich in our Catholic tradition. - Reverend Robert Sims, STL, MA “ Fr. Bob” Beth Leonard offers a thought-provoking look in to the loving heart of our Blessed Mother. A great way to deepen your appreciation for all that Mary does for us—and enhance your familiarity with Sacred Scripture, too! - Ken Ogorek, Evangelium Consulting Group, www.evangeliumconsulting.com A beautiful book with many insights into the sorrowful heart of Our Blessed Mother and the Passion of Jesus. This bible study opened my eyes and heart to see Mary in a different way in her unique role as mother of Jesus, bringing me deeper into the heart of Jesus and Mary. - Sharon Teipen, Catholic Radio Indy “Participating in Beth Leonard’s Seven Sorrows of Mary Bible Study has given me a deep spiritual awakening! Her thoughtful insight leads us straight to the heart of Mary leading us closer to Jesus.” - Christine Moss Creator, co-host and author of Awaken to the B.E.S.T. The Seven Sorrows of Mary is a daily prayer that was handed down to us from Saint Bridget. Using these sorrows as our template, we find them in the New Testament writings and then trace them to Old Testament prophecies and accountings. You will be amazed at what Mary teaches us as we delve into the Word of God to uncover the clues to her mysterious sorrows. On the surface, Mary’s sorrows may seem like an exercise in remembering our Lord’s sacrifice, but Mary teaches us so much more through her perfect humility and unwavering faith. Our study will reveal the history and purpose of the sorrows and how we can use these teachings to aid in our daily struggles, more deeply root our position with Christ, and enhance our own Catholic tradition.
