Item Description...
Overview
Designed as a guided discovery, Six Weeks with the Bible for Catholic Teens introduces high school students to books of the Bible by integrating the biblical text with insightful questions to help youth discern what Scripture means for their lives today. The series provides students with a clear explanation of Biblical text, opportunities for prayer, and a means to enter into conversation with God. The flexible design of Six Weeks with the Bible for Catholic Teens makes it ideal for both school and parish programs. Thematically arranged, there are four guides for every theme. Each introduces one book of the Bible and is divided into six weekly sections.

Publishers Description
The book of Luke has been described as one of the most beautiful books ever written, and "Luke: The Good News of God's Mercy" brings this beauty to life for teens as they study the life of Jesus and what Jesus can mean for their lives. Luke's Gospel deals with the issue of being open to God's work through Jesus. Luke shows us that God has made salvation available through Jesus' birth, life, death, and resurrection. In many ways, God's action through Jesus was unexpected, even for the Jewish people of the time. The salvation Jesus brings goes far beyond what people were looking for. It also makes demands on those who accept it. So we meet people in Luke's Gospel who are astonished by Jesus. They are struggling to understand what Jesus was offering them and how they should respond.
In the Gospel of Luke, we make contact with a will other than our own. God shows that he is not a spectator-god who made a DVD of the universe billions of years ago and now sits back to watch. God has a loving plan; God makes things happen. It is this active, involved God who comes to Mary and tells her about his plan for her in Luke's Gospel. As we begin reading the Gospel of Luke, are we prepared to meet this God?

More About Kevin Perrotta & Gerald Darring

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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A "reader friendly", informative survey of Luke.  Sep 7, 2000
Luke: The Good News Of God's Mercy is the lead title in the new Loyola Press "The Good News of God's Mercy" series and offers a "reader friendly", informative guided tour through the New Testament Book of Luke from a Catholic perspective. Series editor Kevin Perrotta (an experienced Catholic journalist) employs questions, commentary, prayer exercises, and discussions of Catholic traditions and people in this exploration of individual passages and their larger biblical themes. Other books in this highly recommended series for students and non-specialist general readers include Jonah/Ruth: Love Crosses Boundaries; Psalms: An Invitation To Prayer; and Revelation: God's Gift Of Hope.
