Three Pre-Easter Bible Studies
Bill Thomas

The Critical Questions... and More contains three separate Bible studies. Each study can assist in guiding an individual or a congregation through key scriptures during Lent. They dig deeper into the scriptures, offering alternate perspectives into the familiar texts of Lent and Holy Week, breathing new life into them. The studies featured in this collection are:
• The Critical Questions
• Who Do You Say He Is?
• "I Saw Jesus."

A Bible Study
John W. Clarke
Hope is a virtue we are born with, but that hope does not peek out at the world unless we feed it and allow it to grow. Hope allows us to live outside the lines, to face fear and cast it out, and to live life as a gift.

John W. Clarke has created a Bible study to fuel our hope. This ten-session study guides the reader toward a hope-filled life.

Bible Study For Lent
Robert C. Bankhead

Each study includes a listing of texts and themes, plus a preparation guide for class members and discussion suggestions for group leaders. These practical resources will be useful not only for pastors, but for anyone who plans educational opportunities for adults during Lent.

Reflections on the Scriptures for Cycle B
Richard Gribble
What does the film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial have to do with Lent?

Richard Gribble, CSC offers the image of this loveable alien stranded on a world that does not accept him to remind us that we, too, are separated from our true home. E.T.'s urge to "phone home" is one to which we can all relate.

The Lenten season is a time to "retune our communication system" in an earnest effort to seek God, holding on to hope no matter the trials that come our way. Though we face struggle and even death, the promise of the Lenten season is new life and a return to the home where we truly belong.

Each lesson in Walking the Journey of Lent: Reflections on the Scriptures for Cycle B is bolstered by opening and closing prayers, contextual scripture and discussion questions.
