Bible Studies

These Bible study outlines have been used by various small groups engaged in catechumenate ministry. NAAC appreciates the many contributors who have made this collection of approaches to scripture possible.

Within the catechumenate a key concept is that of adaptation. That concept appplies as well to these models, and so feel free to adapt them as your situation requires. If you have other Bible study models that you have developed or adapted, please forward them to the web curator for future posting.
