The Bible and the Liturgy

Rev. Sebastian Carnazzo , PhD

The Bible and the Liturgy 







This course examines the Christian Faith, with special emphasis on the Sacraments and their biblical background. Through a carefully study of the Bible, Catechism, and early Church artwork, architecture, and liturgy, students grow dramatically in their appreciation of the Faith and its rich biblical background and are given the knowledge, tools, and confidence to employ the Bible as the major tool in future catechetical endeavors.
