How to Get More Out of the Bible

Do you have a favorite parable? Do you have a specific virtue you’d like to work on?

Fr. Mark-Mary explains how to have daily contact with the Word of God so you can get more out of your favorite parts of the Bible. He suggests reading the text, consulting Ascension’s Bible Timeline, and then rereading with your new insight in mind.
