The Catholic Biblical School provides an integrated learning experience that engages both the head and the heart.
Each class is two hours in length and includes an opening prayer time, small group discussion on the written homework, and a presentation by the instructor that prepares students for the next assignment.
Students typically spend 4–5 hours per week on the homework assignment that includes readings from the biblical book being studied and supplementary materials, as well as writing the answers to 5–6 study questions, which are the basis for the small group discussion.
A variety of methods of instruction appropriate to adult learning are used. These include:
The class is open to adults of any faith. Our approach to scripture is rigorous, scholarly and in conformity with the best of Catholic biblical tradition.
