Catholic Bible Institute: New Testament Year, 2021 - 2022 (English)

The Catholic Bible Institute is a comprehensive, three-year Bible study program: one focuses on the Old Testament, another on the New Testament, and a third year on the Bible in the life of the Church, along with some practical skills for facilitating Bible-based programs in parishes. The goal of CBI is growth in relationship with Jesus Christ through the study of the Bible. CBI participants study the Word of God according to Catholic principles and connect the Word with life through prayer, conversation, and written reflection.
