Our parishes are providing a very exciting and well done bible series called, The Great Adventure.Â This is a Catholic Bible learning system that makes the complex simple by teaching the story (the narrative) of the Bible. Jeff Cavins developed The Great Adventure in 1984 when he realized that most people, despite their strong faith, did not grasp the â€œbig pictureâ€ of the Bible. Though they knew selected stories, they were not able to connect them into a full narrative. His answer was to identify the books of the Bible that tell the story from beginning to end. By reading just these 14 â€œnarrativeâ€ books, a chronological story emerges. The Great Adventure Catholic Bible study system providesÂ related materials that include video DVDs, audio CDs, and workbooks.
