Threshold Bible Study is an exciting, informative, inspiring, dynamic, and life-changing way to learn about the Bible. It is a thematic Scripture study program designed for both personal study and group discussion. Each study is presented in a workbook format, designed for reading, reflecting, writing, discussing, and praying. Space for writing after each question is ideal for personal study and allows group members to prepare for the discussion. The thirty lessons in each study may be used by an individual for daily study over the course of a month or they may be divided into six lessons per week. You are invited here to explore the biblical springs of the Eucharist. Through this exploration, you will enrich your understanding of this sacrament and deepen your appreciation of the great gift it is. Through texts from the Old Testament, the gospels, and New Testament letters, you will discover that the Eucharist unites the prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of our lives as an offering in union with Christ. Through meditation on these texts, you will learn to cultivate a eucharistic life of prayer and active commitment in the world.
