"God’s Word to His Church" is a Basic Catholic Bible study prepared by the Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Noto, Italy. It was translated and printed in English in 1982. It has not been in print for at least 10 years.

The Outline look like this:

I Interrelations of the Bible, Tradition and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church

II God’s Master Plan of Salvation

III The Cooperation of Man: Works

IV Our Blessings in the New Adam and the New Eve

V Consecrated Life

VI The Christian Facing Temptation

VII Prayer

VIII The Making of a Christian Character

IX Giving Witness to Christ

Each lesson has some Bible reading and reflection questions.

Supplemental reading Material is also posted that may be helpful.

There are some self-examination questions at the end of the section, not each lesson, read them, answer them and discuss them.

The Correct answers will be posted at the end of the week of the final lesson for each section before the first lesson of the next section.
